'm taking an impatient fishing friend up to the area and was wondering if anyone had opinions or tips on these 3 lakes.

Quantity of fish and ease or fishing are more important than trophes.

elp please

Walloper

Walloper would be the place to go if he is impatient.

They Stocked Walloper...and they shouldn't have because the fishing was just getting decent with 1 pd average. If you want to catch a lot of fish, Size not overly too important, I would go there. They bite on almost anything you can throw at them. There are some "larger...cough cough" fish in there....but most are generally about 9 inches long. Getting there is easy, the dock is fairly decent, and the boat launch is fairly easy to get to.

any suggestions on which fly? I know he has a few of the BC standards like doc spratley, 52 Buick, etc.

I was hoping by getting a little more into matching the hatch it would be more interesting.

Those should work, but you may want to also try shrimp, leech, wolley bugger patterns in various colors, as well.

I've gotten alot of response out there from a size 10 and 12 green 52 buick, I've heard that a dark green leach works very well too. most people that start fly fishing can't catch anything for a long time (or so i've heard) but on the buick... the fish don't seem to care that my line lands in a splash

Wonderful.....I have lots of those to test out.

Geez, if the fish are 9 inches they are awfully small. I may have to dig out the 4 weight rod so it will at least be a "struggle".

4 weight?

If you want a struggle.....just throw an eye onto the top of a willow branch and use it to fish with.... naw, just kidding...all i have is a 6 weight, and sometimes you will get the odd one that can grab and go. a 4 would be so much nicer tho. definetly a good battle for the little guys. oh, and the hatchery fish in there...have been in there feeding so much now, that the hatchery flavour is almost gone.

I was up at another lake down from stake, mconnel i think? nailed about 10-12 in about 3 hours, and they fight like tanks, I dont think they fight as hard in walloper, my friend told me they are pretty lame scrapers. Maconolls fish are 12" and fight on the 6wt unbeliveable, I also manage to get a 2-3lbs spawner from shore, but i didnt know that were spawning, so I stoped trying for them.

Hopefully the bite will be one while we are there and I can test the rod out.

I was up in the Yukon and used a 3 weight to catch grayling which is a ton of fun. In one stretch my partner caught a fish on 32 consecutive casts. Now that's fishing!!! Okay, it's not fishing............... it's catching.
