If you travel west of Innisfail to the town of Dickson don't forget to
stop below the dam to do some fishing. Dickson Dam which flows into the
Red Deer River has a variety of fish in it. The first time I went there
to fish I was using frozen smelts. I threw my hook in the water and
before I got a chance to start reeling the line in I had a 3 pound Pike
on the end of my line.
The fish in this lake haven't developed to be
anything monstrous, but because of the abundance of them it's a great
place to take your family for a picnic and to do a little fishing from
the shore. The lake also holds a good supply of Walleye, Rockies, and
Brown Trout. If you go below the dam to the river and walk down the side
of the river to it's first bend. The river becomes very calm and that's
where you will see the Brown Trout popping the surface of the water as
the feed on the local flies. Glennifer is also equipped with a boat
launch but motors are allowed only in certain areas.
