Default !!!Ice fishing lakes!!!

I've been ice fishing the same lakes for along time, and now currently looking to switch up, would anyone care to share some of the lakes they enjoy ice fishing here in Alberta, I'm not looking for any lucky spots, just the lake itself, I really enjoy fishing fair fax lake for Athabasca rainbows, it's very sceninic and the fish are beautiful!

You're in the wrong drainage for athabows at Fairfax, they are just plain old fashioned hatchery fish. Lots of good lakes in Alberta, check out the stocking list and you'll find many new spots to try. Note other lakes in that area have quality regs, no bait and reduced limits. Check before you go, good luck.

Forgive the confusion, the sign they had posted read that they were Athabaska rainbows! Not sure what the difference is!

Slave lake is awesome for fishing! If your willing to make the drive. Went there last March, it was awesome for fishing burbs and walleye. People there are good too, the ones we met anyway. I'm making it a ritual to make at least one trip per winter there.
