Trip Report Late Season Lake Report (Tigers)

Trout, not Muskies.

With the border still closed, I found myself driving to Oroville with an SRB raft bound for Nolan in Vernon, BC last week. Of course I could not get through so I had to work with a broker that would serve as the "middle man".

Never wanting to miss an opportunity, we decided to stop off at a lake that I had fished the previous week while finishing up a real work assignment. I caught a bunch of tiger trout on the first trip and I hoped they would still be there. Luckily for us they were. My wife had never seen one so I thought it would be a good opportunity to show her the coloration and distinct patterns.

After bringing the first couple to shore to show her and snap a few photos, she asked what kind it was. I did not respond for a moment to see what she might say. After a bit, she said they look like a tiger and wanted to call it a tiger fish. I started laughing...true story.

Not big but plentiful. Nice fall weather and not another angler in sight, though there were a couple local youth blasting off some guns for awhile. It was a lot more relaxing after they left...they did not stay long.

Sorry about the bio at the end of the report. Not sure how it got there and not sure how to get rid of it.

I don't know about tiger king, though I like both musky and trout. I usually only get a couple a year. I think I landed around thirty tiger trout this year, biggest around 20". No musky. My one musky trip this year a lightning storm chased me off the water. I still think one of my prouder moments was getting that big tiger trout in Rufus Woods.
