Fishing Report:
16 Sep 2014
Fishing on Tunkwa continues to be very consistent, with most guests reporting lots of action. The warm days and cool nights have got the trout into a good feeding pattern preparing for the long winter.
Best action is fishing around the 13' depth over the deeper part of the lake. Presentation isn't that critical, just get it to the right depth. Trolled pumpkinhead flies have been the hottest bet, but a HotShot trolled through is producing pretty good as well. Worms fished under a float just off the weed edges has been another sure bet. Some of the best action has been in the early evening, when the lake just comes alive with active trout.
Chironomid fishing has really slowed down, with the bite slowing since middle of last week. Chironomids are still hatching, but the trout aren't really dialing in on them now. Scuds, or leaches hung under an indicator are far outproducing the chironomid patterns.
TransWest Roofing had there annual fishing derby here this past weekend, and the guys got into lots of trout, with many of them a good size. Stan Gregorowich landed the heaviest rainbow trout at 3.4lbs to win. Good job guys!

Lots of trout suspended in the lake, as is shown in this pict of Woody's graph, while out on Tunkwa.

A beautiful weekend up here, warm and sunny, plus the trout were biting!! Cooler nightime temps have really brought the lake temps down as of late.
Lots of fish were caught on a variety of techniques. We saw some really heavy chironomid hatches including some bigger sized, to 'bomber' sized.
Trolling Kwikfish or Hotshots were solid producers. Various leach patterns or Pumpkinheads were good as well. Gang trolls and wedding bnads did not seem to produce as well.
Worms fished under floats have been deadly, producing lots of trout to 3lbs.
An annual family fishing derby held here, saw lots of fish brought in with the biggest being a 4lb-12oz.
So far this week it has been windy, but the guests able to set up, and get out of the wind have still been hooking up.

Chironomids continue to hatch in a few areas of the lake where fishermen are fishing 9' down to catch fish. Leech patterns trolled
 in various depths are also producing fish. Water temps have cooled down with the 0 Deg. overnight temperatures. Daytime temps are close to 24 Deg and clear and sunny. Stable weather will keep the fishing in good shape.

Fishing has stayed pretty steady since the last report. Daytime temps have cooled off a bit, and night time have dropped down to more typical temps. Some rain here and there has lifted the campfire bans, but more importantly put some fresh water into the lake. Water levels are starting to drop as the ranchers are now pulling water out of Tunkwa, which is good, providing some movement in the lake water. Fish are still holding in the top 8' of water throughout the lake. Trolling shallow diving plugs like the Kwikfish or HotShots, keeping them in the top layers of water, have been producing some nice trout. Trout to 24" have been landed the past week, with a few good tales of bigger ones getting away.Worms under a float, continues to be a really good bet as well.
Fly anglers casting micro leaches( in various colours but the PatrolCar leach has been hot!)into the weed edges, have been rewarded with some nice fish. Yesterday we saw some giant chironomids hatching in good numbers(maybe due to the water being pulled out of the lake?) with the trout really dialed into them. Bomber sized ASB with red rib, fished 7' down over 8 to 11 feet of water, produced!

With the lack of chironomid hatches the fly fishermen have been catching fish on blood worms of a large size( Brian Chan's blood worm) and other large patterns. Color does matter in fishing the blood worm and some guys have been getting break offs from the larger fish hammering the fly. Other fly guys are fishing the weed bed edges and over the weed beds using Dragon fly nymphs(Gomphus), mayfly nymphs and damsel patterns. Temps have cooled down the lake creating a fall atmosphere here at just under 4000 foot in elevation. Guests Trollering using HotShots, or Kwikfish fishing 6-9 feet down are getting trout to 3lbs. Off the docks and off shore kids (and some adults to!) have been doing well with a worm under a float with fish to over 3 lbs being landed.
Just in(1:40 PM) there is a report of #14 chiromomids and spotty patches of larger ones now hatching, the Terminator pattern chironomid were used to hook up, also half-backs and 52 Buicks caught fish today. Surface water temps have dropped off dramatically the last few days, a sign that fish are going to start to fatten up for their 6 months of being ice covered.
