I have never fished swan lake in vernon even though i have lived in the area like, forever. but i have a chance to take my dear old dad out soon and would like to make sure we are in the fish rather then trying to figure out the lake all day. he doesnt cast much so we will probably be trolling most of the afternoon. was going to try and fish slow in 15 to 8 feet and probably start with wooly buggers, or maybe spratleys. any help would be great. thanks guys. and gals.. :-[

I've never seen anyone fishing Swan Lake before. I was up there two months ago fishing Okanagan Lake for the first time ever. Launch at paddlewheel park and fished the west side of the lake. We used down riggers at 25' and trolled hot spot apex (black and chrome). We got six nice rainbows 1-2lb. I Bet Swan lake would be similar to OK lake.

I haven't fished that area, but I was camped on Swan in August. There were a few folks on the lake fishing. Loked like they were hauling gang trolls for the most part. I saw one fish come out of the water about 30 feet offshore that was easily in the 3+ lb range. Give these guys a call Vernon's Outdoor Store 2709A - 43Ave Vernon, B.C. Canada V1T 3L2

Its a pretty dirty lake and not sure if i would ever eat anything outta there. Someone the other day said fishing was good, but it is only only 30 feet at its max, fairly shallow for its size. Personally i would try along the weeds on the left of the boat launch facing town trolling slow with a black or maroon sparkly leech. I know that there are some big trout in that lake though.

thanks guys, ended up going out today, but only for a couple of hours, as the wind picked up to a pretty nasty pace. the maroon leach and black w silver leach is just what we did try. had some nice hits on both, but the maroon seemed to be the favorite. biggest fish we saw was about 3 lbs. did not get to the south end, but from what we found, the majority were along the west end in 8to 12 feet. all in all seemed to be pretty fair fishing and if i had some time, weather , and a die hard partner, (dad could be what is called a fair-weather fisherman)I'm pretty sure it would be well worth a day.
