Well, left for Kidd lake this morning at 4 am to have our lines in the water by 6. Two others out in boats at first but by lunch it turned into 8 or so. Trolled around for a coule of hours but nothing. Tried dragonfly nymphs, wolly buggers, and big ol leaches. nothing. about 11 or so we decided to anchor and try some chronies. after an hour of screwing around on various parts of the lake we finally dialed in on a hatch. we had best success on a size 14 chromie four feet below a strike indicator in 6-8 feet of water. found it a bit strange for the fish to be taking them that high off the bottom, but whatever. only landed one and lost one other by 1:30 before we had to jet back home. lots of surface action, but overall pretty slow day. should be kick ass in another couple weeks. hope this helps if anyone is planning on heading out that way.
cheers, tuber

I'll be at kidd the weekend after the longweekend (the end of the month) . Never tried kidd before, ive heard good things from more then one reliable source. Some big fish in that lake! In June im also gonna try Island lake ( just past the copper mine north of merrit) which ive also never fished and heard many great things about.
Anybody fished Island lake? Gonna fish Loon lake after Island in that same week in june. Cant wait to get up on those prestine still waters in Thompson/Nicola region. :thumbup:

if you have trouble finding the fish with a float dangled chronnie in Kidd try putting it on a full sink line and just let it hang straight to the bottom and slowly finger roll it up i heard this can be a very good way to get those lunkers. wish i knew that when i was there cause maybe i would have gotten one or two on the rod. just beware when they take they take hard that way from what i have read lots of fish break off right away

There seem to be a few campsites in the area.Kentucky/alleyne, and kane lake rec sites,also there is a pullout at Courtney lake. Are you tenting or you got a camper/trailer. i have camped right at the lake in my camper for a couple nights at a time, but be warned the outhouse there is in rough shape, ROUGH! Thinkin of heading down that way myself, but we'll see later on in the week. Hope you get a lunker.

i fished kentucky all thru the 80's and loved watching those brutes come off the shoals for the fly. haven't fished it since mid 90's, how big were the ones you were getting? there used to some good ones in there, my best was about 6.5 pounds, what a battle, picked it out from under a log in the fall, where the boat launch is now.
