Today was our third day on the open water and the 2012 season is off to an exciting start! The trout fishing is off the hook, some nice lake trout have been showing up and today we did a number on the kokanee! I anticipate this year to be incredible for kokanee salmon and I think today was just a sneak peak at what the future holds! I have seen some incredibly large schools of salmon in the last few days.

Water temps are sitting between 39-43 degrees across the lake and as the water warms the fishing should only get better. Fish are holding in large concentrations in certain areas so keep moving until you start seeing fish on the finder. These areas are changing daily as the fish are moving a lot in search of food so don’t “fish a memory!” Fish rocky shorelines for trout and look in 5-50′ of water for salmon. The lake trout are spread out and at every depth right now so the key is to cover a lot of water to find them. If you want to fill your freezer with salmon or get in on some incredible fishing action give us a call today! Dates are limited!
