The Fishing Report
Dec 2, 2013
Almost a carbon copy of
the last couple months, the fishing has remained the same. Lots
of fish, but still waiting for the big ones to come to life.
Water conditions are perfect and so is the weather. This is our
favorite time of year for fishing the lake. So, hopefully, like
everything else this year, things are a month behind. And maybe
December will be the beginning of our 'Big Fish' season.
November saw lots of days with 10 - 15 fish coming to the boat. A
lot of smaller fish, but usually getting a couple decent fish each day
to keep the excitement alive.
On our last trip of November, we finally saw a couple big fish come to
the boat. A beautiful chrome 18 Lb Rainbow followed by an amazing
colorful 20 Lb Rainbow. So, hopefully that's the beginning of our
famous winter fishery.
Other reports from the lake are similar. Lots of shakers and
small Bull trout, with a couple biggies being reported each week.
The North end of the lake is reporting good Bull Trout fishing,
but not as many Rainbows.
Hopefully, as December progresses, we will hear more reports of the big
boys coming out to play.
are they biting on???
Most of our
Rainbows are being caught on the surface and our Bull Trout on the
downriggers. So, it's best to cover both angles if possible.
We're lucky enough to have 3 or 4 people on the boat each day so
we can run both surface and deep lines.
My favorite bucktail flies as of late have been: #210, 214, 215,
and 224. Or the common colors of Black/white, gray/white,
My favorite Lyman plugs have been: #16, 55, 69, and 160 as of
late. Colors are similar to the flies we've been using.
And the old standby, flasher/hoochie has been catching its fair share
of Bull Trout. Favorite depths have been 75ft, 95ft, and
That should about cover it for this time of year.
Hope to hear more people having success during this next month.
Definitely my favorite time of year!! So, let's get out there.
