Spring fishing on Kootenay Lake is on. Most days out getting rainbows over
10 lbs. All chromers coming in as the spawners are up at Gerrard now. Will
be going up there hopefully on the weekend to see the spawning fish, and
get an idea on the counts.
Last week we were getting nice fish most days. Fish in the 12 - 15lb
range. On wednesday we never landed one over 10lbs. Then on Thursday everything
came together and we had a busy day. We landed 5 rainbows in the 11 - 17lb
range. Gorgeous chromers. Great fight. Also threw in an 8lb dolly and 4
shakers. The 219, 221, and 215 were hot that day. Typical spring colors.
Flies with green in them are working well as the water turns green from
Still have a few salmon/halibut dates left. Will be out on the west coast
fishing by the beginning of July.
Weather have finally turned nice. Looks like we may get a summer after
all. Hope you can join me soon.
