Kootenay Kingfisher Fishing Report to Sept.11
Hello Everyone. Had a great summer on the west coast in Ucluelet. Good numbers of Chinook, Coho, and Halibut. Lots of great stories to tell after 70 days on the ocean,but I have no idea where to start. It turned into Ground Hog day somewhere around the middle of July. I did quite a few updates with pictures on Kootenay Kingfishers Facebook page. If you go to the homepage of the website and click on the Facebook symbol it should come up for you.
A big Thank You to everyone who came out fishing and helped make it a successful summer. By the sounds of it most of you will be out again next year and that's awesome!!! I got back to the Kootenays around the beginning of Sept. Have been out a few days on Kootenay Lake already. It has been pretty good considering the time of year. The one day we had 19 fish to the boat. Nothing too big but that will change as the water cools to their preferred temperature. Water temp is currently around 63-65 degrees. Most bull trout were in the 99-155 ft level. Rainbows were taking flies on top. The 226 was working well on those days.
Time to start booking dates for prime time Kootenay Lake fall fishing. We had a good spring fishery, and I'm looking forward to a great fall. Please drop me a line and I can help you plan this great trip !!! Tight Lines. Brad Stubbs Cell: 250-265-7110
