I have seen some huge fish swimming around the drop offs while fishing for kokanee. I'm guessing in the 10 lb range, unfortunately could not entice them. So I could not properly identify them. Just guessing they are lakers. I know for sure I have seen some spring sized fish show up on the depth sounder. Lakers for sure ;D
Lakers fight like an old boot so you guys aren't missing much. A rainbow or cutty a 1/3 the size wil provide more sport. There's a reason nobody has pictures because they are harder to hook and not so enjoyable in the event that you do. However if it's lakers you're after then head up to region 5 in a bit. You'll find hoards of them up there. :cheers:
I am sooo glad to see these kind of responses here! I recently posted a similiar response to someones reply on the hunting forum I use! It was not so much that I did not believe the gentleman ( 15 fish landed at Allouette and knows all about these lake trout ), but for God's sake I have fished that lake for years with my father and NEVER can we seem to find these alloosive lake trout! At the best we may catch the odd koke or trout but they never have much size to them. We have put in our time too! Down riggers, up riggers, motor on, motor off, fish finders, fish blinder, inside, outside, upside down.....it does NOT matter, we've never found these fish! Nor have I ever had anyone be able to verify catching one! Please stop writing about them in books and articles!
Boy that was a real fishermans rant!
Anyways good to see some sane and more importantly honest fisherman here!
If per chance there is someone who knows something special about this lake please...I want to know it!
Thanks guys, great forum you have here!
P.S. I'm new!
Yeah, the truth is out there. Let's invite this clown too, he could prove it once and for all http://youtube.com/watch?v=KRhAHHGaG6A (just kiddin, settle down guys!!). If he did show up we could use him for laker bait :happy:
I have gotten a 5lb fish out of the Alouette and that was about 3 years ago. Didnt get a pic of it so believe or dont believe. I know there are bigger fish as I have seen fish as big as 10lbs come out.
So the truth finally comes out. For years I have been muttering about broken cameras and broken lines but the fact is I have never caught , or seen anybody catch, any fish at all on the Allouette. Lord knows I've tried, and tried, and tried, and lied. Phew! I feel much better now.
