Fishing Report – April 27, 2006
My official derby team of Doyle, Debbie, and Tim, or otherwise known as “Team Grizwalds” was up for the Woodbury Dolly Derby in the middle of April. We worked some tough weather, and rough water for two of the three days, but on day two we had one big enough to weigh in. The minimum length is 30 inches, and our fish was 31 inches, weighing around 10.25 lbs. It was soon bumped, and by the end of day three, the winning weight was 14lbs 14ozs.
Always lots of fun fishing with ” Team Grizwald “, and I’m looking forward to salmon fishing with them for 6 days this August.
Kootenay Lake is fishing very well for big Gerrards now. Last week there were a few big guys caught up to 24lbs. Was over yesterday, and hooked two trout over 10lbs., and a bunch of smaller ones. One we got in that weighed 11lbs. An awesome fight on a bucktail. A chrome doe. The other one was a big male. He jumped about 150ft behind the boat, and showed us the brilliant red stripe on his side, then spit the hook. Great to see him and fight for awhile, but would have been nice to get some pictures.
I’ll be fishing Kootenay Lake hard for the next month, as this is an awesome time for big Gerrards. The water temp is best between 45 and 55 even up to 60 degrees. Yesterday the temp was 45.2, so it’s just starting.
Still have some spaces open for salmon fishing in August. See you on the water.
Tight Lines … Brad
