Ritchie and I packed up the "Blue Bomber" - the name of my new 12 foot Princecraft Ungava and headed to Wood Lake, just a 15 minute drive from home. The skies were blue, the temperature about 20 degrees and there was little wind. At the lake, we saw about 20 boats trolling, mostly on the west side of the lake. I usually fish he east side of the lake over by the big white house on the cliff but decided to change it up and try the west side. About 5 minutes after launching, I had my first fish on. It hit my offering at the end of a 5 weight fly rod really hard and went down deep, which made me think it was a chunky rainbow. After 5 minutes or so, with line getting peeled off the reel on two long runs, I had a nice Kokannee in the net. After a liberal dose of the old "wood shampoo," into the cooler it went. This was the first fish I have dispatched in a long time as usually it's catch and release for me, but my neighbour has been asking for me to bring him some fish so I did. After another 20 minutes, another fish on and this one was stayed on the surface rolling and jumping all the way to the boat. It was a little smaller than the first, but was destined for the BBQ so BONK! I handed over my hot rod to Ricthie so he could have some fun and we managed to hook up a few more times and land another kokanee. From what we could see, most boats were playing fish at one time or another so for Wood Lake, the fishing is pretty good right now. We even saw several Ospreys dive into the water and come up with their own fish. One thing I would encourage people to do is lose the gang trolls and switch over to a full sinking fly line outfit. Even a small fish is fun to play!
