I am pretty sure it is ice free but not positive. I haven't been out there lately because it is a bit of a trip and is closed until may 8th.

thx for the reply, just getting anxious I guess, I am in Fernie and try to get out there a few weekends every year. definitely wish there were places to fish walleye that were closer though.

If you take highway 3 into Alberta you do have places that are closer.

Check out St.Mary, Ridge, Keho, or Chin.

My buddy will be out on Travers on Wed. for opening day.

I myself plan on hitting Chin in the evening after I am done work.

I am doubting I will be making it out Thursday.

I am hoping to be on the water Wed. and Friday evening and all day Sunday.

You could try the inlet or outlet at keho,

The inlet at Ridge may be another good option.

Off the Dam at St.mary.

Those 3 options if you want to try for walleyes.

If you want to fish for trout you can head to nicholas sheran, riverstone which are both in the city. Or head out to Mcvinny, Keenex, or McQuilan.

If you want to fish for pike you can try henderson, nichols sheran, Park Lake, Keho, ridge or St.mary.

If you want to try your hand at some sturgeon you could walk along the Oldman river in town and just out a pickerel rig or sturgeon rig with minnows or worms. Any slow moving deeper hole will usually hold a few different species of fish.

Hopefully this helps you out.
