Fishing on Tunkwa was good on the weekend, with everyone catching lots of trout. Trolling was working very well, with anything green being hot! Kwikfish, hotshots, wedding bands all producing. PumkinHeads, Two Tone Olive leach patterns, were working good as well.
Some good reports from chironomid anglers, who were on the active hatches. Smaller sized 14, in Whisky Dicks, Barnes Lake Specials, Black Silver or ASB/red rib, were producing. Better hatches and action to be had later in the afternoon.
Fishery Staff are here starting to collect eggs from spawning trout, and have comment on just how many fish are in the lake this year, and how well the lake is doing! The switch over to the Pennaske strain rainbow trout sure has been successful!.
