Fishing Report:
 
April 22/14 ICE OFF
22 Apr 2014
Late afternoon, and it looks like the last of the ice is gone! Tunkwa is ice free!
Walked a bit of the shore line along the resort this aft, casting a maroon micro leach, on a sink tip, and landed 5 bows, plus lost as many, when the trout come in shallow, they sure are feeding now!
Tues, April 15/14
22 Apr 2014
There is still a fair sized chunk of ice floating around the centre of Tunkwa lake. The chunk might be 20% the size of Tunkwa tops. There is lots of open water to fish, and fishing has been fair to good. Fishing is best later in the afternoon when the shallows warm up a touch. Small(#16) black and silver chironomids, or static bag/red rib, have been producing. Micro leaches,(olive, black or the vampire leach) have been producing as well. Lots of smaller trout in the shallows, but big fish are ebing hooked, and can been seen moving and feeding.
Large hatches of chironomids are coming off mid day, mostly size 16, but some 14's in some areas as well.

We will keep the ice off conditions updated here on our fishing reports page.

Ice off on Tunkwa has been progressing very fast, probably the fastest I have ever seen!
As of Easter Sunday afternoon, the ice cover has been reduced to around 40% of the lake, a good wind should see it piled up on the shorelines quick!!!
Talking with one angler who was out for a couple hours today, and success was reported on smaller Chironies and micro leaches. Trout can be seen moving along the shoreline, and all looks good! Leighton Lake is a bit behind Tunkwa, but we will get down there for a peak over the next day or two and report on conditions.
April 15/14
15 Apr 2014
We are starting to get lots of calls about ice off conditions. Things are progressing along nicely with some good open water areas along the shorelines.
Our creeks are starting to pump water in. The ice is rotten, and will not support any weight. Chironomids are hacthing through the open areas.
Just a best guess at this point, but we should see it gone in the next couple of weeks, max.
A few area lakes, at lower elevations, iced off last week and are providing some early season fishing opportunities.

We will keep conditions updated on here, and remember to check our web cam to see the conditions in front of the resort.
March 17/14
17 Mar 2014
A few more anglers out on the ice the past few days. Despite the warm trend last week, the ice is still going strong on Tunkwa, with 24" of solid ice. Any snow on the top has long melted and frozen up. Some spots along the shoreline, where run off is entering the lake is getting sloppy, but still plenty strong. Always use caution where you see the ice a bit brownish along the shore, this is where it will open first and be the fist spots of unsafe ice.
Friday and sat saw some incredible winds, making it a challenge to stay on the ice, fish were off and the few bites were very light. Leighton fished a bit better as guest headed there to get some shelter from the south winds, and reported fishing was OK. Sunday saw the winds stop, and the barometer was steady, and the Tunkwa trout really turned on the morning, with some guests having great success and lots of action. The morning bite was key, starting up as early as 6:30am! later morning traffic moved or turned the active trout off and it slowed right down for the rest of the day. Ice conditions are still safe here, and we will probably still have a couple more weeks of safe ice.
This will be our last ice fishing report of the season, but will be doing updates as ice conditions change, and Tunkwa starts to ice-off, to start the open water season.
