Fishing Report – March

Had some pretty good Bull Trout fishing in February and March which is
typical for this time of year. Lyman’s have been my lure of choice at 2.2 -
2.4 mph. Top 30 ft has been the best. Smaller ones have been deep on the


I am planning some trips on Arrow Lk in about a week to ten days. The north
end of the lake has some great bull trout fishing in the spring. Usually
good numbers of fish up there. For you folks from Alberta you can stay in
Revelstoke which is only about 5 hrs from Calgary, then meet me at the ferry
landing in the morning. A great close getaway!! If you are interested in
this trip give me a call soon. I will only be doing this trip for a few
weeks then I’ll be back over to Kootenay Lake.


Spring Rainbow trout fishing on Kootenay Lake will be firing up in about a
month or so. Usually around the end of April after the water has warmed up a
bit the rainbows get aggressive and put on the feed bags again. I’m starting
to get booked for May, so a good idea to start planning now and get you on
the calendar.

Salmon and Halibut fishing in Ucluelet. Looks like it’s going to be a great
year! Forcasts are for huge numbers of chinooks returning to the Columbia
River. Also the Stamp river forcast looks above normal which will help us
with the local fish. Supposed to be some 5 year old fish mixed in there this
year. Those are the real big guys 30 – 45lbers.  All these fish come down
the fish highway and stop to feed at Ucluelet. Already hearing of lots of
herring in the area which will hold the fish there.  Our job is to thin them
out a little and put some fish in our freezer. Lol  90% booked for these
trips from June 18 till the end of August. Going to be a great summer. Lots
of fish!
