I decided to take a break from moving last week and hit up alouette for some camping and fishing. The weather was soso but that didn't deter my trip. Once I arrived at our site just before the narrows I set up camp. That day the fishing was terrible, for anyone who has been there during the day they will know that the wind and chop does not help you out any when fishing. At sundown I broke out my fly rod to attempt to cast. Fished the fly rod until dark, I had a couple of small pike minnows and one larger fish who shook off, I didn't get to see what it was. That night I started to blow up my air matress to find out it had a hole in it..looks like its the ground for me :( .

The next morning after I streched my back out for a while I grabbed my spinning rod and a spinner. Had a couple of fish on, couple more pike minnows to the beach and two sucker fish, one was a largescale sucker and the other was gold with a black stripe (not sure of the breed - Mountain Sucker?) both were around the 1-2 lb range. Now I have never caught a "nice" fish in this lake. It has always been pike minnows or suckers so I was starting to think that there is nothing else in this lake :lol: . After getting lazy and wanting some breakfast I decided to bottom fish for the rest of the day. 2 oz. weight and a glob of blue powerbait in about 60 ft of water. My soon to be Brother-in-law was snorkling with me when he said my rod was jumping. I didn't see anything but decided to check anyways. Once I lifted the rod...bam...fish. Reeled in a 13 inch bow. I didn't have a scale with me but he sure was tasty.

I am glad to see that there are other fish in our lakes other than Pike Minnows :wink:

Decided to head home that night as the rocky ground is not all that inviting. Plus had my whole house to move that weekend.

The Allouette is a learned lake.......Lots of fish in the waters but finding them can be difficult. A depth sounder and a good downrigger or deep diver will do. There are some BIG fish in that lake, and you will enhance your fishing success by fishing in the latter part of September and October as the lake begins to settle a bit...The winds are a bit lighter in the fall months and the water skiiers have gone for the season...Ortho 8)

I've never actually caught a coarse fish in that lake, I troll with flys in the spring time and catch lots of kokanee and trout. :) No big ones yet though :!:
