Island Lake is 59.1 hectares with a maximum depth of 4.8 meters. Northern pike are the targetable fish species present. The lake lies in a remote location of the Duck Mountain, and therefore receives very little fishing pressure. Island Lake is most commonly accessed in the winter but can be accessed year around. Fishing reports from Island Lake commonly state that pike fishing was exceptional.**Due to the nature of difficulty regarding access on backcountry lakes, launch access areas are restricted to small watercraft only.
