Stocking the Lake

In May 2022, the Alberta Conservation Association stocked Lacombe Lake with brook and rainbow trout in an effort to create annual local angling opportunities. People 16 to 65 years of age require a fishing licence. For more information, please visit the Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations

Please Note: The Alberta Conservation Association (ACA), in partnership with the City of St. Albert, is conducting an angler survey from May to September at Lacombe Lake. This will help determine whether the lake’s stocking numbers and species need to be maintained or improved. 

The angler survey will include an online survey, in person survey conducted by ACA or City staff periodically throughout the summer, and wildlife cameras installed around the lake. The cameras will capture hourly, low resolution images so that a count of anglers on site can be determined. These images will not be high enough resolution for any facial features to be recognizable. Once an angler count has been obtained by the ACA, the images will be deleted.
