Fishing Report – February 09, 2012
As expected February has been hot for Bull Trout. Great numbers, and great size. Averaging between 8 to 17 fish landed per day with 3 to 5 rods. Fish are in the 5 – 14lb range for the most part. Absolute fatties. They are in their prime right now. Billies and Lyman Plugs on top have been producing best, pulling at around 2 mph. Colors change every day of course depending on the weather. Flasher and hootchie down deep was working about a week ago, but the fish seem to be more on the surface lately.
The rainbows have been a bit moody lately because of the cold water. However the ones we are getting have been nice ones. The big spawners are starting to stage up in the north part of the lake, so catching more of these now. If it’s not a chromer, or going on your wall, we are releasing these ones. Hopeing for another record year at Gerrard.
Troll a fly or lures below 2 mph. Less action the better when the water is cold like this. It can try your patience, but the rewards will be huge.
The water may be cold, but the weather has been great. Most days getting above freezing, and the sun has been showing up as well. Got some color on my face on Tuesday on a beautiful sunny day.
See you soon!!!
