Timing is everything, and now is the time. Lake Koocanusa is fishing great. We are averaging 8 to 12 fish a charter. The biggest rainbow so far in the boat tips the scale at 6 lbs. We have have put several 4 to 5 pound fish in the boat. Also we are catching 2 or 3 bull trout a trip. The surface water temperature is down to 50 degrees/PERFECT and only going to get better. As the water temperature goes down the fish come up. This time of year they get very aggressive and fight very hard.
They are hitting bucktail flies and Lyman plugs on the surface as well as sub surface using the downriggers. Remember dark days, dark lures, sunny days bright lures.
