    Default What fly to use for tunkwa lake?

    Hello!

    My school's Fly Fishing club is going on a trip to tunkwa lake in the first week of june! None of us have any experience with that lake and most of us arent very experienced with the whole "match the hatch" concept. Could anyone provide tips on what flies to try out?

    Sounds like trolling leeches the past few days has produced good numbers and bigger fish

    You can also use the Fishing Reports from Tunkwa Lake Resort. If you are staying there talk to the staff (or email) as they are a very friendly and informative crew. Richard and the guys are always happy to share current information.

    Just spent 5 days at Tunkwa. What worked last week might not work now . I did well on chronomids and leeches .the chronomids that worked well , were anti static bag with red rib , and black bead , with a touch of Antron. Any dark leeches caught us fish as well , trolled in 10 feet of water .
    things might or will change before you go

    Norm is correct. Fly Fishing depends on the active hatch. Watch what comes off water as the sun warms up or what happens to be flying around the first night you arrive (assuming it will be in the evening). There is always an excellent chronomid hatch there. If in doubt, dragon patterns or leaches. Buy a stomach pump if you do not already have one and youtube Brian Chan to see how to use one properly. Given the warm spring sedges may be active buy now too.

    A full sinking line with a bead head black leach will get almost any trout in a lake across BC. Try casting twoards the shore/sunken logs/other structures in the water, let it sink to the bottom (give it 10 seconds if it is a FS-6wt), and retrieve with a slow strip until you have a fish on.
    It seems that this setup is best for rainbows in the 10-16 inch range.
