Spring fishing has been very good. Yesterday we caught 10 fish, one of which was a slot fish, at 33?. The fish seemed to be very active and willing to bite. The runoff continues. The fish are starting to suspend throughout the water column. We were fishing in 140 ft of water and catching fish at 30, 55, 65, 85ft. and on the bottom. Watch you fish finder, present your lures at whatever depth you see the fish. Be flexible move with the fish. We caught fish on dodger/houchie combo’s, spoons and stick baits. As this spring weather pattern settles down I look for more consistent fishing. Try the north delta area, as well as the center bar.
Swan Lake has been on fire for big pike. Matt took a gentleman celebrating his 75th birthday and he pulled in a 42″, 24lb. northern. Also some lake trout, bull trout, kokanee salmon and cutthroat all in one day. This is a great multi specie fishery.
Fly Fishing small lake:
We have been doing some charters on some small lakes using the jon boats and fly fishing for these very aggressive and hard fighting trout. Brookies up to 2 lbs., wow nice brookie. Also been doing great on some 22″ rainbows on nymphs, leach patterns.
Lake Mary Ronan:
We have getting our limits of kokanee salmon, 10 fish limits, in about 2 hrs. for 3 client. Nice size kokanee 12″ to 14″.
