Hot/Hot

I took my boat up to Lake Koocanusa yesterday and decided to fish since I was up there. I only fished for three hours. Boated 5 rainbows biggest at 7.5lbs but they all were in the 5 to 6lb range. Also one bull trout at 8lbs.  Lyman lures and flies one on a Rapala. It sure looks like it is going to be a great November. Remember timing is everything with these fish, so don’t waste any time, get up there. Remember it is only going to get better.

Tip of the day: if you’re not tangled, you’re not trying

See ya on the water

It’s Time/Big rainbows

Yes, it is time to get up to Lake Koocanusa. The surface water temperature is down to 53.2 degrees, perfect. One of my boats was up there last Saturday and did real well, biggest rainbow boated 8lbs. I checked with several other fishermen and they all had 6 to 10 fish days. The weather was not very friendly as the wind  was up to 25 to 30 mph gusts. Also several nice bull trout were caught. The bulls were from 3 to 8lbs. they too will get bigger, as they are still coming back down the river system.  Most fish were caught on Lyman plugs. Check out the link on my home page for Lyman Lures and their catalog. Also some fish caught on streamer flies.

Tip for the day: keep the boat going forward.  

See ya on the water

good fishing

I fished Flathead Lake today, and we had a great time.  We put 9 fish in the cooler and released one slot fish. The slot fish was 34″ at 14 lbs. I checked we other fishermen on the water and all were doing very well. We caught all our fish on the east side south of Woods Bay. I used flatfish on the bottom at 100′ of water. I used the M2 SP flatfish from Worden’s Lures in the red/white and a metalic silver chartreuse.

 

Keep a tight line

Lake Koocanusa

I fished Lake Koocanusa yesterday. We caught one rainbow at 3lbs. and one bull trout. The lakes looks good, the water surface temp. was 56.0 degrees. I think in about 2 or 3 weeks it should really start fishing very well. Remember this is a surface presentation, we need those fish to come to the surface and feed, that takes 52.0 degrees or colder surface water. I did mark a lot of fish on the finder at 50 to 60ft. Thetwo fish we caught both hit a Lyman Lure. We also had 3 releases, one on a fly and 2 on Rapalas. 

Keep the boat going forward!
