Try the lower elevation lakes. Jocko can be very good right now, as can Lac Lajeune. Knouff is usually good up until Icing over. Be sure to take along leech patterns and water boatmen and yo should do well.

Fished Jocko Friday, lots of smaller fish, although was told it has been on here and there. Fish there are still digging the chironomids.

Fished Heffley and it was good, just look for moving fish in ten feet of water, get on top of them asap and offer them a small leech or small peacock herl pattern.

Got word first hand that Tunkwa was super hot from shore today. 40 fish landed from shore in the afternoon. Minimal boats and as motors on the lake these days and I have heard from a few sources these fish really move in shallow in the fall. If you head out in a boat wear a life jacket and a whistle the wind can kick up fast there. I am aware of three boats being blown over this year with the most recent (a week ago) almost dying of hypothermia. He made it to shore, as there was few others on the water he laid on the edge in cool temps soaking wet for some time until someone spotted a 'body' laying on the beach. The one I saw in May the two men were in trouble too although the quick efforts of others had them to shore in about fifteen minutes.

From a very reliable source (long time resident and proficient fly fisher) Lac le Jeune is not a great fall lake. Don't know this first hand as I trust this source whole heartedly.

Look for cloudy days, the sun really turns them off in the fall. Although as with all 'rules' this was broken today at Tunkwa. Perhaps the darker bottom and remaining weeds give them comfort at Tunkwa or the competition of the larger population increases competitiveness for the remaining food sources.

If Jacko is 20 minutes from your house, you are likely within 5 minutes of the Kamloops Fly shop. Stop in there and talk to Al Long. He's a great guy and will give you lots of information about local lakes. Being in the middle of trout country, maybe you can post some local information for those of us who are down here on the Lower Mainland.
