    Roche Lake Park Fishing Report – Summer 2017 / Chewy Dragon Instructional (with video ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Thanks Gord! …….


  3. troutboi says:

    Hey all, went to Roche Sat. 16th. Busy as heck. Can’t believe so many people up at this time of year. Fishing was good for us. North end, intermediate sink line, #8 gold bead olive wooley in 12-22 feet,slow strip. 60 fish on for me and my wife, 40 or so landed. All smallish,couple at 2 lbs. The indicator crowd didn’t seem to do as well, some guys still fishing chronies. Fun anyway,beautiful day. ( 3 or 4 pounder would have been nice though).

    Another Roche Lake Fall Fishing Report (posting for James) …

    Fished the 15th and -6th up at Roche. Beauty weather. The 15th was good with most fish coming on #14/#12 ASB red rib (both white and black beads) had some on leech patterns as well. Did well just off the bottom in 19ft of water in john frank bay and half decent just off the bottom in 12ft of water in monster bay. The 16th was certainly tougher. Did well in the north end just off the bottom in about 10ft of water, all small ones tho. Was great to get out again before the cold weather sets in!

    Just wondering if anyone knows if the lakes are starting to freeze up ? Once this little bit of snow gets cleared I would like to get out to Roche one more time thanks in advance for any info.
