flyguys.net Official 2011 Kamloops Area Lakes Ice Off Report

So this year we wanted to try to keep all of the ice off reports in one post.  We decided that the easiest and most efficient way to accomplish this was to use the comments / reply section at the end of the post. Might work, might not but we’ll give it a try and see how it goes! Check it out below! 😉

Thanks & come on ice off!

    Cant believe this crap weather!
    I hiked around edith lake 4 days ago and she was frozen solid for the most part.
    Today, April 17 2011, my girlfriend and I hiked up and around Jacko lake – the boat launch bay is now free off ice as well as the southern arm of the lake. Saw on guy in a small boat fly fishing and another of shore who claimed to have had a bite. I’m estimating that it will be another week or two tops and she should be free of ice.
    By the way we also went to McConnell lake today she was still ice fishable with loads of snow!

    Sorry guys the forum was just taking too much work so I took it off line. I moved all the posts back here to the comments so we haven’t missed a thing ….. carry on then! 🙂

    Returned to beaton lake. Was super windy on the lake for pontoon but watches a couple chaps take about 3 fish in 20 min. Was maybe a little quick to judge hopefully it works out for the best.

  6. Adam says:

    Thanks for all the updates, guys!  It’s pretty hard to check in the the thaw situation when it’s a 3 hour drive.  🙂

    I’m really hoping to hit Scuitto for the weekend.  The forecast calls for nice weather up that way for the next few days but whether I’ll be able to get the boat in the water when I roll in on Thursday night is hard to say…

  7. Brandon says:

    Went and fished Scuitto lake on Sunday. Only about 15 feet of water around edges with the exception of one bay so decided to fish it anyways. Was using a black micro leech with the cast and retreive technique and immediately hooked into one that was 2 1/2lbs then right after another one a 4lbs…it died done after that for about half hour-hour then just started hammering fish!!! Caught about 15 in total all ranging from the 2-4lbs range!!! I’m thinkin it won’t be completely iced off until sometime next week:( but don’t be discourage becuase the fish are there and they are hungry!!!

  8. fish bum says:

    anyone know if the ice is off on lundbom yet ?

    • Rob says:

      Might be some fishable water but word is not totally ice off. It would be a gamble if you’re planning a trip but if the weather does its part it might be open water by the weekend.

      • fish bum says:

        thanx for the info rob , i’ll stop in on my way to kamloops to check it out and report back .

  9. Rob says:

    * Laird lake

    … chime in if you know of any others 🙂

    Any one know if Red is ice free yet? Heading up bear hunting this weekend wondering if I should pack the rods

    • Rob says:

      Just got a report that Red is about 5 -10 feet open water along the shore … if the warm weather predicted over the long weekend actually makes an appearance and sticks around it might be fisahble by the end of next week. 8)

  11. Rob says:

    Took a cruise around the Roche lake area today and was quite disappointed to find that things look about the same as last week!!! If anyone had plans to fish Horseshoe or Bleeker this weekend I would seriously think about making other plans!

    Bleeker lake – slightly less “bleeker” than last week! 😐


    What a crazy spring!

  12. Ryan Booth says:

    Anyone know if Scuitto is fishable from a boat yet? Trolling?


  13. Ryan Booth says:

    Woke up to 2″ of snow in Pineview this morning…. Decided to hold off untill this afternoon at least…. Tomorrow’s forecast looks more enjoyable at least…. Yikes!

  14. steve says:

    Anyone know if Campbell lake has ice off, usually ice free before Scuitto?

    • Sam says:

      Last year me and a buddy fished scuitto when it was 1/2 off and campbell still solid

    • Rob says:

      Scuitto is open about 20 feet or so off the edges and in one small bay (see picture above) … Campbell is a ways behind.

    • Brandon says:

      Cambell is only open on the west bay of lake towards scuitto no much water there but a little bit

    • Dawn says:

      WooHoo!!!! SO stoked for May 12-15!!!!! Now, not quite understanding how the turn-over thing works, how long after ice off before the turn over? Can that be calculated, or…??? I’d hate to get there and the place is like pea soup……with NO FISH BITING!!!!! Thanks!!!

    • chris says:

      was up at campell yesterday talked to one of the ranchers he told me it’s been off for a week

  15. Mark says:

    any Jacko reports? I will be heading up there tomorrow for the day, battle the crowds. Coming all the way from Richmond for the day! It is iced off right?

    • Rob says:

      It’s ice off for sure. My advice would be to get there at first light and stake out some real estate. I heard that bloodworms in shallow water have been working fairly well. Good luck and be sure to post a report for us when you get back! 😉
