    Any word on monte or stump ice conditions? Paul lake just froze completely yesterday

    • paul says:

      Stump lake 4 inches ice came home with 10 Kokanee from 1 to 3 pounds between two of us. Main lake only has 2 inches not enough to wander around.

        Well, you did better than we did! 3 of us, 4 hrs, not even a hit. Tried north of the south launch in about 30ft, and then drove to the middle launch and got out over about 50ft water. Nada!

        That is my 3rd time trying for Stump kokanee through the ice in the last few years and I have yet to get a nibble! I seem to have no problem catching them at Monte and other lakes I’ve fished over the years. I tried various depths from 5 to 15′ deep, which seems to have worked elsewhere for me, but no dice.

        • paul says:

          That sucks. It’s very hit and miss and this was the first time ever we limited out through the ice in stump. Open water no problem lots Kokanee but they disappear in the winter. Last year we found that Gibbs flashers and chartuse jigs fished 5 or less under the ice was the ticket. I also make my own Kokanee bait which makes all the difference. I’ll be out their This weekend

        • paul says:

          I’ve been skunked plenty on that lake myself but the lack of crowds keeps me going back plus their are some big ass Kokanee in their if you can find them

      Thanks for the Stump report Paul! I’m hoping a buddy of mine driving by Monte will send me a report ASAP.

    Pretty good bite at Leighton from 2:30pm onwards. We were fishing in 5-8′ of water using silver spoons 24″ above a pink jig head tipped with cooked shrimp. Nice 2.5-3 pound rainbows with lots of fight.

    Well with the year winding down to hours remaining I guess this is as good a time as any to wrap up the 2016 Reports page. And what a year it was! We would like to thank everyone that participated to help make the site what it is; whether you have posted articles and shared your knowledge on a subject, shared reports & pictures, offered feedback, or simply visited, viewed and hopefully took something worthwhile away from it!
