You can fish all winter in most local lakes with some success, but it gets better as the weather gets warmer. If you hit one on one of these sunny days, it would probably be quite good. I'm heading out soon so I'll let you know
I went to Burnaby lake had a few bites and one small, ok, very small carp. I was bored and when one gets the fishing bug any place will do. But I do catch some descent ones in the summer. Aug/Sept. I was going to try Deer lake but changed my mind. ha ha
I still miss Latimer lake as it was pretty close and the Serpentine and Nicomekl were well "blown out" really high. I heard things were slow at Green Timbers so I went to Burnaby to fish as I know it is early for carp but what the heck.
I am craving a trout for dinner so maybe once the monsoon season is over I will head out to Jones Lake..
Just waiting for "ice off" on Wilgress...otherwise known as Loon Lake....or also known as "the one at the top of the hill"...anyways there have been reports or 5 pound "bows" coming out of the ice....I have not seen any of them nor met the person that caught them so I don't know....but I do know that the bows will be good on Chronies in about a month or so and the day the ice is off enough.... I WILL be out there and row to the far side from the launch and drop a few "chronies" to about the 15 foot level.
Couple of us are hitting one in the morning, it isn't exactly local, but we'll see what happens. Makes for an early 4 am wake up call though!! : ;D May post a report from our cold and hopefully hot day on the rain!!
Hey kettlefisher, you talkn about loon lake, the same loon lake that has all those cabins and camping and buildings next to it? I remember being a kid at school and taking a trip up there with my whole class. We canoe across the lake and did rock climbing ect. that lake was called loon lake aswell. I wonder if its the same lake? Its a retreat now for kids and private groups, heres the website.... http://www.loonlake.ubc.ca/
I fished rolley this evening after work for an hour. I had to walk from the gate, but its no biggie. I was into 3 fish, and landed 1 at an honest 12 inches, which isn't too bad for rolley. It got cold realllly fast after the sun went down so me and my leaky waders hightailed it, even though the fishing seemed to be on. There was a good hatch of black chronimids, and the fish were on them, but I stuck to my damsel flys because my hands were cold :
was talking to hook earlier and he was walking his dog at green timbers today and a couple guys we know were fishing black chronies and were into 3 fish each in no time before he had to leave for work.
Awesome i'm taking the step son fishing tomorrow and couldn't figure where to go for some trout! Green timbers it is! were gonna throw spinners tomorrow! we usually use worms but some kid last year told us we were not allowed to use worms or any live bait! anyone know if this is true? i've looked around a bit online and found nothing of the sort!
well whoever told you that CK was not a smart cookie as there is a little tiny sign on that dock looking thing that says worms or artificials only which would mean NO powerbait which is what everyone uses
i personally use flies only there and do catch and release
if the little sign isnt there then someone tore it off LOL
