Aug.22/16

Fishing remained spotty last week, and pretty slow on the weekend.
We saw some very warm temps, and not many bugs hatching. The lakes algae layer has been all stirred up from some heavy winds.
When fishing is tough, worms fished deep on a slip float will always get them. Some reports from trollers having success fishing ‘blue maroons’ down about 7′ adjacent to the weed beds.

last night blow and storm, has put a lot of fresh water into the lake, and temps have really dropped, usually a change like this will see the fishing pick back up.

The nearby Thompson River was supposed to open today for Jack/Spring Salmon fishing, but it was closed, with no opening in site. Fishing for resident rainbows is still an option and open, this usually prime time for surface action with large dry flies.
