Recently bought a cabin in the area. Anyone have any fishing tips for this area for the summer time? Any nearby rivers and creeks to fly fish? I have head that the summer fishing is slow and the fish are very deep. Any ideas or recommendation on what flys and/or plugs to use?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to the site troutlake 8)

Arrow lake is nice area, I am sure you will enjoy it. Although I have not fished there, I have fished Kootenay lake and the methods we use are similar. The best times for the big bows are early spring and late fall (should be getting good Sept thru April). Trolling bucktail's through the chop with plainer boards can be productive for rainbows. If you want to go after the Bulls you will need to go deeper (40-90ft) plugs and spoons work well. This time of year I would try your fly rod/light gear around the inflow creeks/rivers.I am going to try and make it up this fall for a chance at a Gerrard :)

There is a Home Hardware in Nakusp that has a small fishing section. They might be able to put you onto some of the better areas to fish :wink:

Cheers

Thanks for the reply. Just got back from our cabin on trout lake. Had very limited success. Went fishing for about 5 hours per session about 8 times. Caught 3 dolly varden's all between 30 and 40 feet on a plug. Talked to the guide from Nakusp and he says fishing this time of year in the arrow region is very tough so I caonsider my trip to be a success.

Thanks for your reply and I will keep in touch with the forum:) :D

Hey Guys,

Nice to see some posts on the Nakusp area. Grew up there. You might try the halfway creek area, close to where you are. You could also try the Kuskanux creek mouth as well. Small hike from the beach area in Nakusp. Bucktailing works for the smaller 3-6lb trout. Keep in the prop wash back about 40' back and keep your speed to 2-3 mph. Very effective out in front of the K. Summit lake is great for some dry fly fishing. Adams works wonders on top. Halfbacks on int. line works great as a search pattern. Let me know how you do.
