Last saturday, feb. 13, we had a great day on Lake Koocanusa. We boated 9 fish, 5 rainbows, 4 bull trout. Largest rainbow was 12 lbs., biggest bull was 14 lbs.. The ice went out early on Rexford Bench, that allowed us to fish the north end of the lake earlier than any previous year. The fish were very active and we had a steady bite all day long. All the fish were caught on Lyman Plugs and Rapala’s. We had a very calm day so I did not even try flies, we were doing good on what we had out there so I did not change our presentation. If it works don’t fix it! There was only one other boat on the lake. This is truely a under fished resource. Get up there and give it a try before the run off starts. The most recent pictures will be up on the home page shortly. By the way this is a huge body of water, lots of fish, there is plenty of room for locals and visitors alike.
See ya on the water
