"Devil’s Lake, also known as Matchayaw Lake, is a small lake in the Sturgeon River Watershed (lake area = 2.11 km2). The Sturgeon River enters Devil’s Lake from the northwest and exits from the north shore. Devil’s Lake is located west of Edmonton and east of Onoway, off Highways 37 and 43. The community of Bilby is located on the south shore.
Sport fish in Devil’s Lake include burbot, northern pike, walleye, whitefish, and yellow perch.
Water levels in Devil’s Lake were relatively constant from 1978 to 2007. Lake levels averaged 679 m in the past 30 years and fluctuated by ~ 1 m. Relatively constant lake levels are undoubtedly a result of large flow through the lake from the Sturgeon River."
