    So I’m really new to the game. I started fishing late in the spring with a friend of mine and now I’m starting to venture out on my own. I’m borrowing his single man inflatable pontoon boat so I can go just about anywhere. Just looking for recommendations for lakes to hit up. I live in Auburn...

    Hey all, I have used the OPST single had spey lines swinging for trout and bass on rivers but I was wondering if anyone has used them fishing on lakes? Particularly from shore, looking to do some fishing off of some beaches for trout this winter and was wondering if anyone has used them in...

    Hello, I am new to fly fishing and am looking for good lakes and rivers in the Grays Harbor County area. Klone Lakes caught my attention due to its more exclusive and private landscape that comes with it, however, I am curious about the amount of trout in the lakes. From what I found, it was...

    Do you use dropper flies in lakes and ponds? Is there any disadvantage to fishing with two flies in still water?
  5. Lakes
    Planning out the spring fishing season for BC lakes. It has been cold here and it looks like the fishing season is going to be later than usual. A fellow on one of the websites has a formula based on Jan/Feb temp as to when the ice is going to come of for a specific lake here (6 Mile). The...

Complaints that there aren't the same level of adventures as before. That nobody is...

    Especially, are the lakes near the Colombia in shape for the opener? This week has been kind of bad and things may have re-frozen. Has anybody had eyes on Quincy or Lenice?
  8. Lakes
    Anyone here fish them? Apparently it’s the largest cattle ranch in BC and has several resorts on large lakes as well as small pay lakes. Given the current exchange rates the RV spots seem like a nice place to stop and spend a couple days on my way to and from Jasper/Banff this summer; swimming...

    I had the chance to fish some areas of BC that I have been eyeing for a few years. Overall, it was cold and windy but the scenery and the people were fantastic. This fishing report was delayed by family circumstances so sorry for the late information. I started by driving up to 100 mile house...

    Planning a trip to BC next summer. Looking for any recommendations. Want a "smallish" type of resort/camp with cabins and hot showers. I know there are thousands up there. But if someone has personal experience I'd like to hear from you. Thanks, Dr. Crush.

    I just had a thought about DIY shooting heads. Just attach shooting line directly to 20 feet of T line. My Streamer Express line is basically that but the running line is intermediate. If my theory works, you could just attach an Airflo 20' t17 "custom cut tip" to some Amnesia and call it...

    Hadn't been there to fish in 20 years, Ellen and I geared up and finned the little canal like snaky lead in to Misquito Lake near Mt Adams...got about to where it opens up but couldn't enter the lake proper...an old pile of logs and lumber was about 6 " below the surface ...we were in float...

    The first and most important step is to pick the right lake; scenic value and the presence of trout are key. Fly selection is a matter of personal preference, but you can't go wrong with a #12 Adams or EHC. They're generally hungry and opportunistic. Get your fly out there and keep your eyes...
  15. Lakes
    Going up later this week to fish Peter hope, Roche and other lakes in the Merritt and Kamloops area. I'm assuming most of the lakes have had a chance to go thru turnover by now. Anyone have some fishing reports.

    PS I have no idea how to embed photos, everything I try crashes Firefox. All I could do is upload an entire folder or it crashes again so they're all in a gallery. Thought I'd post a little report and some observations from a weekend of tubing some of my old college days haunts. My wife and I...

    I'm sorry LCnSac, totally puerile but I couldn't resist. 'Here be Dragons' was to be the title but the impulsive inner child in me suddenly thought otherwise. After years of vicariously living off other folk's reports on WFF with varying degrees of envy (in all cases) my resolution for this...

    Fished two lakes May 9 and 10--then the weather shut us out. May 9 I was fortunate enough to spend the day with Brian Chan on one of the lakes he actually built when he was working for the Fisheries Dept. This was my first time fishing for trout in B.C. and it was a trip I'll never forget. I...

    In the last few years the state has planted a lot of steelhead smelts in lakes. What happens to these fish due the try to spawn they can't migrate to the sea Do they grow and become large steelhead or do they live a few years and die. Do they compete with the other trout or take over the lake ...
