Going to Buntzen Lake myself tomorw. Every time I hit that lake and use the fly rod I end up with fish for the table later that evening. I know this lake is productive right now.
Here is an example of the avrg. size coming outta the lake right now.

fished green timbers today for a couple of three hrs. just fished worms under a float! had many many hits on the worm but nothing to shore! nice little lake and lots and i mean lots of little fish jumping everywhere,must have been 15+ ppl fishing everything from fly fishing from shore to powerbait on bottom and worms under a float! the only fish i seen on shore today came from a yellow and black little t spoon not sure on the correct name but it had the same shape as a red and white daredevil.....the fish was around 13 inches! I highly do not recomend flyfishing from shore for i seen a little girl almost get a hook in her ear as well as many ppl running on the path!

Buntzen Lake

Do I lie? No really do I lie? I think not..... lol
Buntzen Lake is fishing good. For half a day fishing I landed 3 and lost 2 next to the boat.
Just recently started fly fishing so I cant tell you guys the names of the flies I caught them on. But lets just say they were small and skinny and brown with little wings.
A few guys float tubing and a few boats out too.
sorry about the size of the pic....

I was at Buntzen on Tue Apr.25 for 2 hours of fishing.I brought a 13" and a 11" rainbow to the boat with a#1 brass spinner. I also tried trolling minnow and leetch patterns with my fly rod and had only a bite :? I'm thinking next time,I'll try BCfisher's "small & skinny&brown with little wings" type of fly. I'm guessing it's some type of dragonfly nymph? Maybe a halfback nymph?

you should also try trolling a black spratly but you have to cut the wings shorter and troll on a dry line with about 13' of leader

i have had good success with that in Buntzen

Trout80 you hit on the nose! A "Carey Special" was the fly I used at Buntzen. Couldnt remember the name untill you said it. Arrived at the lake around 11am just as another guy was leaving. We chatted up a bit and after informing me of what fly he used to get his 3 trout = 1 Koke, he gave me the fly. It was that Carey Special. Good fly for trolling.

Went to rolley for a few hours on sunday with the girl friend, so I left he fly rod and tube at home, and we just fished from shore with "previously frozen" shrimp. We didn't get anything to shore but we had quite a few bites. There were tons of fish rising and jumping, and lots of insect activity. There were also lots of people fishing, it was hard to find a good spot :?

Went back to rolley today with my tube and fly rod this time. Fished for a few hours with a small elk hair caddis and got 9 small ones to the boat, nothing over 8 inches. The fish were all super scrappy though, lots of acrobatics, it was alot of fun. 8)
