Fishing Reports

Fishing Report – March 15. 2012

Not too much new to report on Kootenay Lake. Still good Bull Trout fishing.

Averaging 4 – 8 fish per day. Lymans, billies and flasher & hootchie all

working well. Colors change daily or hourly as all sorts of weather changes

have been coming through. It keeps you on your toes.


Getting a few nice rainbows, but they are pretty moody in this cold water.

Same gear working. Got a double digit trout the other day @ 99ft on a

flasher and hootchie. You never know where they’ll be on a certain day.

The Woodbury Dolly Derby is on April 6,7,8. Should be another great turnout.

The Dream Team (aka: The French Connection) and I will be out. We plan on

taking first and second, but third may be open. We’ll see how that plan

works out!!!


Look for the Gerrards to really turn on about the last week of April through

till the middle of June. We need to get the water temp back up into the

40′s. Good to book these dates soon as it’s looking like a busy spring.

Don’t forget about summer salmon & halibut fishing in Ucluelet. Looking like

another great year for salmon numbers. Great runs are coming out of the

states this year, helping us have great numbers of fish. One river I heard

of expects an increase of 500 000 salmon this year due too habitat and

hatchery enhancements. We’ll give those fish a run for their money as they

swim by Ukee in July.


Looks like fisheries has come up with a number for Halibut quota. I believe

it’s 981 000 lbs for the sport fisherman. That’s down from last year. Looks

like they may be closing the fishery a bit early again this year. We’ll see.


Lots of great fishing coming up this spring and summer. Let’s get out in the

sunshine and catch some rays and some fish.
