    Has anyone seen or heard of any oxygen level reports for our region 3 lakes? Hopefully we get a good run of warm days and some wind for the next few weeks!! Thanks.

    • wayne says:

      All reports seem favourable . Bleaker , pass, red, six mile are all good. Apparently Roche will make it this year. I’ve been ice fishing a brookie lake that kills on a regular basis and it is doing fine as well. Bodes well for ice of.

      • Joe says:

        Thanks Wayne. Usually there is a thorough list of lakes and the oxygen testing results released to the public. Did you get these lakes from a list that has been released? I think people would love to see the results for this region’s testing results if that information is available. Thanks again for the reply.

  2. wayne says:

    Just got back from six mile and Morgan. Both are making good progress now with the wind. A bit slower than last year but will be fish able to a certain extent by next weekend

    • airbc says:

      Thanks Wayne!!
      Us LML folks thank you boys up on the front lines for all the updates and photos that keep our spirits alive! Looking at last years notes pulled from this site I see that Six Mile iced off March 6th in 2015. Could we only be one week behind last year? Keep us posted and pictures are an added bonus!


      • Art Vandelay says:

        I actually think that 6 Mile was fishable on February 28 last year and Morgan was full ice-off on March 6.

    Hi Fly Guys –
    It seems to me that I was getting updates to this forum automatically via email. It appears not to be happening this year. I have tried everything I can think of – but I have had no success. No follow-up comments or new posts. Any suggestions?


  4. Evan says:

    Just got back from White, lot’s of rain and couldn’t use my fingers by the time I left. The very small bay at the far end when you first drive in is still iced up and had to break up a little bit of ice to get out of the launch, but she’s well over 90% all iced off. Had the entire lake to myself. Didn’t do very well at all, But it sure was nice to feel that tug out on the boat once again! : ) Cheers

  5. fishinchicken says:

    With white thawed and six mile and Morgan starting. When do you predict stump will be open?

    • wayne says:

      Stump should be off by mid March considering that six mile and Morgan are bang on with last year almost to the day. Which means pass should be off mid April as well.

      • DonB says:

        If memory serves me right, Stump actually iced off before Six Mile and Morgan last year. Very rare for that to happen.

  6. fog says:

    Does anybody know if peterhope is fishable yet ? Thanks guys

  7. Don says:

    Hi Folks, Question: Does anyone know if and when the kamloops boat show will be??

  8. Glenn says:

    Went for a little ride to Niskonlith Lake to see how the ice-off is coming along. looks good so far!

  9. coastlogger says:

    Anyone out there know when Courtney was iced off last year

    • BCFlyguys says:

      I don’t know about last year but I heard that it has some open water now. This is a third hand information however so please don’t run out there on this report alone. Hoping someone that can verify will jump in …

    • trouthunta says:

      Courtney iced if march 25 last year. Have a hard time thinking there is open water there as i ice fished a lake close to there last week with 14 inches of ice.

  10. BCFlyguys says:

    Six Mile was fishing OK today. We fished off shore and the wind rarley let us get in, and stay in, the zone but we did manage 6 over a couple hours. Guys in boats that adjusted for the wind seemed to be getting them regularly. Other than the wind the weather was beautiful! Nice way to spend a couple hours! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Tom says:

    Hi All –

    I have been keeping a chart of the full ice-off dates for a number of the local lakes.
    I would appreciate you all noting these dates on this site so I can enter the dates for 2016. Any official (or unofficial) dates for Six Mile and Morgan? Or any others?


    • BCFlyguys says:

      Six Mile and Morgan are ice off … we fished them today ๐Ÿ™‚ Six Mile came off first (I think it was Wednesday march 2) and Morgan yesterday (March 4)

      Will post dates as we get them and encourage others to do so as well.

  12. BCFlyguys says:

    For those that missed it on the FB page ……. Roche lake O2 sampling was good! Beef up your tippets boys & girls! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  13. trouthunta says:

    Tried ice fishing a lake i did last monday and couldn’t get onto the lake today, crazy what 5 days can do to a lake, drove up to courtney lake soft around the edges for sure, i think it could be close to last year , possibly few days earlier. Had to end up going up kane valley way to find some ice to fish. Its coming starting to get pumped.

  14. Glenn says:

    Went up to check Niskonlith Lake again today and it was completely ice free.

  15. Glenn says:

    From Niskonlith I headed to Phillips Lake, it is very close to ice off there. Shouldn’t be more than a few days…
