Well the weather worked out and the Kamloops area iced off lakes were still pretty limited so we packed up the family and headed back out to Kamloops lake for some more spin cast fishing for feisty Kamloops rainbow trout! The goal today was to get Genna into some fish … and at only seven years old she handled herself like a pro!
The video say’s it all!
The girls a natural!
Although there were some chironomid pupa hatching, today’s trip was all about the kids so we left the fly gear at home and stuck to the spinners & spoons. The big hitter today was a size 00 lime green spoon with a bit of lead above the swivel to help keep it down a bit deeper during the retrieve. The other thing we discovered was that the fish seemed to be cruising closer to shore today than normal with with short casts bringing more success than the long ones … sometimes it really pays to experiment. 😉
What a great day out with the family! Spring is definitely here … get out there and have some fun! 😀
