Hi all, I'm at a quandary. Does one go try to outsmart a fish on Roche or PeterHope Lake? I am going June19-26. Any reports would help me ease my troubled mind and allow me to sleep at night. Thanks. Kernaltrautman :roll: :?:

Hhmm...I haven't fished Peter Hope this year, but I was up at Roche earlier this year. Roche has been stocked with triploids the past few years, and those fish have grown BIG. Only issue is the popularity of the lake...lots of pressure on those big boys. I think that the chances of hooking into a larger fish (bigger than 4lbs) is much better at Roche...and I do like the campsites there better also. Peter Hope hasn't been the same kind of quality fishery for years now.

Thanks Stone. A friend of mine who is a legend in his own mind when it comes to fishing, suggested i give Roche a try. He was there late may to early June and did well. Plus Mr. "Fishon" gave me a great suggestion for the return trip back to Winfield. Roche/Salmon/Jimmy/Wood/Pinaus. Of course i would have to take another week off work to fit all that fishing in.. but im willing to take one(or 5) for the team.

I've never caught anything out of Peterhope that was even close to double digits either...although I've heard of stories before the lake got really popular.

I'm amazed by how many people "catch" fish over 10 pounds yet didn't weigh them, measure them, or take pictures.
I don't even try to estimate weight without a measuring tape and I've seen plenty.
People really don't have a clue.

LOL ....... Yes that may be true big-hitter44 .... with us guys there are two things we exagerate about ...... the size of our fish and the size of our ..... nah I better not go there.

I agree with your comments Stone ...... that was years ago and quite possible then ........ but I'm sure not gonna say it can't be ......... it is possible ........ slim chance .... but possible.

Thanks, Oswald. I would really love to see some pics. You can register in our gallery for a free online album so you can host pics if you like. Looking forward to that report. I'll be fishing elsewhere in the province that week, but would love to know how you guys did. Good luck.

The Mayor of Peterhope Lake

Hey Oswald! Was your Dad known as "the mayor of Peterhope"? This was many years ago but a couple buddies of mine got lost on the Peterhope/plateau road and a guy who called himself "The mayor" gave them some directions and some gas and got them out of a jam. They still talk about this guy and how he saved their bacon.

Thanks Os, I will ask my buddies if the "mayor" had a dog and motorhome. I was thinking of going fishing tomorrow but there will likely be a million yahoos out on the lake cutting each other off and yelling at each other. Maybe i will go just for the entertainment value of watching those guys get into it. There is something inherantly sick in that but what it is.. i cant think of. Have a good weekend all.
