Fishing Report – March 7, 2011
Kootenay Lake continues to be exceptional. I’ve been telling everyone to expect things to slow down, but the fishing has continued to be very good.
After the full moon in Feb. we had a couple of slow days, with only two fish landed per day to 15 lbs, but the 6 ft. chop we were in on Saturday didn’t help much either. However this last week I was out five days, and the fishing was great.
Monday – 9 fish landed – 5 over 10 lbs
Tuesday – 12 fish landed – 6 over 10 lbs
Thursday – 16 fish landed – 6 over 10 lbs
Friday – 10 fish landed – 4 over 10 lbs
Saturday – 6 fish landed – 2 over 10 lbs ( short day )
Both bullies and gerrards coming in. Probably 60 % bullies and 40 % trout. The bull trout have been exceptionally fat. Beautiful shape. A sign of a really healthy fishery.
I’ve been pulling Lyman Plugs, Billies, and flasher and hootchies. All working well.
Don’t forget about the special I have going till April 15. Up to 5 people in the boat for $350.00 per day + tax. You can’t beat that.
It finally feels like spring is just around the corner. Warmer days, and warm winds have felt good.
Tight Lines … Brad
