I fished there last year on May long. The lake is quite big so if you plan on using a tube I would reccommend going just infront of the resort called moondance bay there is a really nice shoal area there and in the evenings and mornings some big bows cruise the shallows :thumbup: . I arrived just after an ant hatch so the fishing was pretty slow but we still managed quite a few nice fish. There are some monster lakers in there so that could also be a lot of fun to target.

on the info thing online about the lake it says it has Ling Cod and Burbot, can this be? are those not salt water fish?

how do you target Lakers? should i be taking 8wght then just incase i hit a monster?

what would be good flies to use this time of year for that area?

thanks

Yah to the best of my knowledge burbot are like fresh water ling cod, I have never targeted them but they are in a few of the lakes up in that area. As for the lakers they can get pretty big, if you plan on targeting lakers then you might want to take something that can handle a bigger fish other that a 5 wt :peace: . We were there pretty early in the season so I fished a few different flies with the majority of my success coming from a little forte leach pattern (basically a small leach with a red tail section) fished with a floating line cast from the shoal area into the deeper section with a slow retrieve. Flies for this time of year could be damsels, dragons, chronies but really would need to be determined once you are there. There are tonnes of smaller lakes in the area that can produce large rainbows at this time of year...Irish (on the right hand side of hwy 24 on your way to bridge), crystal, janice, fawn..etc. If you would like some more details on the smaller lakes just let me know.

HEY HOOK, I RENT A CABIN EVERY YEAR ON BRIDGE AND USED TO FISH IT IN MY TUBE.YOU CAN DO IT UNTILL THE WIND COMES UP SO BE CAREFULL. I NOW USE MY PONTOON BOAT WORKS GREAT.THE LAKERS CAN BE TARGETED WITH A 5WT FOR SHURE LTS OF FUN. I FOUND A BLACK MICRO LEACH WORKS GREAT FOR THEM.AND YES THERE ARE FRESH WATER BURBOT. IF YOU HAVE TIME CHECK OUT THE GREENALL ROAD AREA, THERE IS A HUGE SHOAL ABOUT 100 YARDS STRAIGHT OUT FROM THE BOAT LAUNCH THAT IS PRETTY GOOD FOR BOTH LAKERS AND BOWS. FISH THE DROP OFF AREA FOR LAKERS AND ON TOP FOR BOWS. HAVE HAD GOOD SUCCESS FOR BOWS RIGHT OUT FRONT OF THE CABINS TO THE RIGHT OF THE LAUNCH IF IT IS WINDY TRY THERE. GOOD LUCK!!

HOOK:

If you're staying at Bridge Lake and you're mobile and tubing, you may want to check out Fawn Lake. It's not too far of a drive from Bridge Lake, and is more the size of lake appropriate for a tube. Bring along your sinking line and a good selection of leeches and BH woolly buggers...there's some hogs in there. Good luck!
