Please keep fishing friendly, and keep sites clean and safe for everyone to enjoy.

As of April 1, 2020 until further notice there will be no vehicle access to Beaver Lake and Fiesta Lake (depending upon physical distancing actions displayed by users, further restrictions may be put in place). This action has been taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to align with the direction of Ministry of Environment and Parks and the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Please consider being dropped off and picked up: you may still walk in as angling is still open. Please practice safe physical distancing guidelines of 2m (6ft) when fishing.

In addition, to reduce health risks to everyone, all ACA conservation site outhouses are now closed. The situation will be reassessed for May 2020 and depending upon site use or unsafe conditions, closures or additional access restrictions on other lakes may be required.

Please keep fishing friendly, and keep sites clean and safe for everyone to enjoy.

Ross Creek (F4-20)


Site Details

This 1,097 acre site is approximately 15 km east of Medicine Hat along the Trans-Canada Highway. There is a small subdivision in the northwest corner of NW 09 that is not part of this site. This site conserves native prairie and enhances habitat for game species, such as pronghorn, sharp-tailed grouse, and ring-necked pheasant, and for species at risk, such as Sprague’s pipit and northern leopard frog. Over 600 acres consist of native grass communities, and nearly 300 acres comprises a mix of riparian vegetation along Ross Creek, tame grasses and ephemeral wetlands.

Restrictions

Day use only. No open fires. Foot access only.
