Fishing Report – September 15, 2010
Well I’ve made it back from another summer of salmon and halibut fishing in Ucluelet BC. And what a summer it was. Excellent numbers of chinook salmon 18 – 35 lbs, and a few to 49 lbs. Get to outside south, southwest corner, or the Hyson. Get your big spoons and plugs down to 35 – 99ft and hang on. Halibut were a little slower this year out at big bank, but figured out a couple of new spots closer to shore and got bigger fish which is good. Coho were not everywhere you turned like last year, but there were fish out at big bank. They did come in to the closer banks here and there, but not thick like last year. That can be good sometimes though as your not wasting time with coho trying to get your lure through them to get to the big springs. Looking forward to another great summer next year.
Kootenay Lake is already producing some big Gerrards 16 – 20 lbs. Water temp is currently 58 – 60 degrees. Pimetime will be starting in a couple of weeks when that water gets down to 55 and lower. Really looking forward to ripping bucktails for these trophy fish. Nothing beats the fight of a monster rainbow. Time to switch gear over in the boat from salmon to trout, and get ready for primetime. Hope you can join me soon.
Tight Lines … Brad
