Game On !!! Finally. The last couple of warm days has turned the rainbows
The weather is awesome. 24 – 29 degrees this week. Lots of great fishing
left this spring. Drop me a line. Like us on Facebook for daily updates and
Not too much new to report the last couple of weeks. Seems to be a slow
start to spring fishing, but I expect things to heat up very soon.Water temp
is around 45 degrees. Getting shakers mostly and some nice Bull Trout. I
expect things to change within the week. Having some real nice warm days to
fire things up.
Brownies flies that are working are 215,221,214,228, and 219. Typical spring
colors. For Lymans, green’s and pinks mostly. Top 30 feet. Getting a few at
around 77, but not many. I’ll send out a report soon to let you know when
the big trout have turned on.

and August in Ucluelet, however I still havent heard from some of you yet!!
All forecasts are looking to another great summer of fishing.
The halibut rules have changed again. Only one halibut over 83 cm , which
is the same as last year, but none over 60 lbs. I guess they will give us a
length measurement to go by. Two possession is the same as before. If the
halibut stocks are decreasing, I guess the best way to replenish them is to
throw back the big females. As long as the commercial guys have the same
Please remember to like Kootenay Kingfisher on Facebook if you are on it. I
