Fishing Report – April 6, 2006
The bull trout fishing continues to be excellent. Marc, Adam, and Brian were up at the end of March, and we went up the Beaton Arm for a couple of days. Lots of action boating and releasing 18 fish in two days – 15lbs, 13lbs, and 10lbs were the biggest. Lots of laughs, and the weather was phenomenal, making for a great trip.
I’m installing a bow mount electric trolling motor with auto pilot on my river boat this week. Should be just the thing to sneek up on wary trout, and awesome for holding over the walleye holes. April is one of the best months for flyfishing on the Columbia River. I’ll be heading out early next week, and will keep you informed. Dragging wooly buggers on the bottom produces big fish. If you’re interested in a trip give me a call.
Kootenay Lake will be picking up soon for Gerrards. I go over and fish the Woodbury Dolly Derby in mid April with the “Grizwalds”. They won the Blue Jay’s derby back in January with me, and we are all looking forward to fishing the dolly derby as well. Should be alot of fun.
I’ll be leaving my boat on Kootenay Lake till the end of May as the spring fishery on Kootenay is excellent. Once the water temp. warms up a few more degrees the big gerrards will be in full force again. Still have a few openings in May for Kootenay.
Kootenay KingFisher is expanding this year!!! I’ll be going to Bamfield on the west coast of Vancouver Island for a few weeks in August, and eventually expanding to the months of July and August. This is the best of the best for salmon and halibut fishing, with both offshore and protected water fishing opportunities in Barkley Sound.
I’m selling trips at unheard of low prices for salmon fishing for the first year only. If you’d like to take advantage of this opportunity, give me a call soon, as I only have a few spots for this year.
So much fishing, so little time – hee hee!! See you on the water.
Tight Lines … Brad
