I've heard the pike and walleye fishing hasn't been very good there this year. I wonder why? Nice to see a few fish are biting though.

Sanchez is a special fishery and needs to be protected. Now why does the CDOW have no bag limit for pike in NON TROUT WATER? You tell me.

I used to go here 4-5 times a year and catch loads of big pike. What happened, they used to have a great population of big perch here. But as often happens, word got around and people got greedy and keeping everything they caught. The pike numbers crashed because the forage base of perch got decimated. Anyway, the perch are making a comeback and the pike numbers will rebound too if nature is allowed to take its course.

This is a great lake and also holds a fair number of walleye that don't get fished for much.
