Well made it out to Allouette Lake on Sunday fished from about 9-2. The weather was mix of snow/rain/hail and sun ::) Fishing was decent landed 6 kokanee and lost many more. Soft mouths on these little guys. Most of the hits came on the red micro leech on the cammo line. Also got broken off on the sink line using a green wolley bugger then proceeded to troll around with nothing on the line for 1hr before I checked doh :wallbash: Anyway fishing looks like its starting to heat up, great way to spend a spring day. See you on the water

Wagonmaster we were trolling across the lake from the boat launch around the old pillings down to the hatchery/fertilizer station. Didnt try the gold creek side but there were lots if fish rising when the sun decided to come out. Lots of midges hatching was thinking about trying chronies but trolling was working well :cheers:

Hey RC & WM

I was thinking of maybe taking my kids out this weekend fishing, I have never fished the allouete nor have I ever targeted Kokanee. If possible could you either post or pm me some info on the lake and the fish. I would prefer to flyfish but have spinning rods for the kids

Thanks Centerpin 8)

Hey CP, I usually do ok trolling flies for these guys...Have had success on the floating line,Clear intermediate (Cortland 444) and type 3 sink line. For flies I dont think they are too picky but red seems to work well for them. Red bead head micro leech was working well could also try a red spratley. Green wolley bugger also had a some action. Halfbacks can also be worth while. Kokanee seem to be a schooling fish so if you can find them keep working the area. They usually show themselfs when they are active/feeding. Havent used gear much for these guys but would think a wedding band and worm would be worthwhile ???. Anyway its a great place to take your kids and get them into fishing. Anymore questions post em up :thumbup: I might head back up there on Sunday or Monday.

I use to fish Allouete lake on a regular basis a few years back, havent been there for a while but heres what use to work for me. Troll straight out from the launch towards the little creek directly across from the launch full sink fly line on both fly rods.All the line out to the backing, 25'leader 4# tippet ,olive shrimp imitation on one, small dew worm on the other.Switch back three or four times going across to get the line to different depths. Usually get a few hits half way across on the shrimp. Once on the far side troll close to shore trying to avoide the big stumps at the mouth of the creek! (submerged) After that troll down the lake towards the old trees and pilings. On to the old hatchery and troll in tight by the rock breakwater just this side of the hatchery facility. This bit of structure is ussually where the big action is! After that across to the flats in front of gold creek. Then have a few wobbly pops cruising back to the launch. Usually is a five to ten fish day for me! ;)

Oh yes there are.............. ;)Gotta troll deep with small plugs and diver /or downrigger just off the bottom. Tough fishery with all the deadwood that is on the bottom of the lake....Depth finder is a must and make sure your rod is in a "bulletproof"holder. The chrome silver and blue diving plugs you would use to backtroll work quite well.......Ortho

I got a few inside scoops for the lakers....hopefully I can get out this weekend. Plans are changing day by day, no camping now :'( but fishing galore for this weekend. The lake is warming up and I am sure that the trout, kokanee and lakers are starting to come up from the deeps.

Are you talking about a dipsy diver? im thinking of buying one and wondering how it is. I use 10lb line and a 7' medium action rod.

Well I was on the water from noon until 6 and no bites. We trolled the west side down through the narrows with some larger laker lures, probably around 30-40 ft deep. The finder was pretty quiet. After a little fire, some hot dogs for lunch and fetch with the other dogs we set out to the east side of the lake to troll for some koks, used a willow leaf troll with a pink wedding band. I forgot to pick up worms on my way so I tipped the band off with some stinky powerbait. Trolled that at around 20 ft with no noticeable strikes. After that we decided to call it a day. Wicked weather to be out on the boat, it felt like summertime, besides the water that was a brisk 46f. I am going to have to buy the wife her license so I can put two rods in the water.....or leave her at home :-X

I though this would be a good pic from the day seeing as how there were none to be taken of fish....



The funny thing is she actually likes to wear those aviators!
