The Fishing Report

Kootenay Lake - Sept 9, 2013

Our guys were still fishing Kootenay Lake on a regular basis throughout the summer. Even on the hot summer days, they managed to catch a few fish. Mostly on the downriggers due to the warm water conditions.

Bull trout of smaller sizes were consistently caught each day. And a few Rainbows mixed in.

And when the warm water finally caught up to us, we started fishing for Kokanee to help keep the interest. Well, that turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Some late summer Kokanee up to 18 inches made for a few exciting trips.

And now we're slowly getting ready to transition into our favorite fall fishery.

Some decent Rainbows have been caught in the past week or two. Nothing huge, but still some good fish in the low teens. That's a good start considering the water is still very warm.

Looking forward to the next few months of fishing on Kootenay.

What are the fsh biting on???

It's still a mixed bag. The weather is still warm and so is the water. So, most fish are biting on the deep lines. However, there have been a few good ones caught on the surface.

September is usually best fished with downriggers. Common depths of 80 - 120 ft seem to work best.

The usual flasher & hoochie combo has been successful. And some of the latest experiments have found a flasher & Bucktail fly to be catching fish also. These combinations fished on the rigger around 100ft seems to be working.

Bucktails on the surface will be working also as the fish become more aggressive.

Look forward to more detailed reports as we spend more and more time on the lake over the next few weeks.

Stay tuned !!

Tight lines....................
