West Kootenay Fishing Report

The West Kootenay Fishing Report provides local anglers with tips and reports on fishing the many lakes and rivers of the West Kootenay region.
Kootenay Lake:
west kootenay fishing reportDecember saw similar fishing to the previous months, however, the last couple weeks produced some big fish and hopefully the winter feeding will continue.
There were slow days with only a couple fish coming to the boat, however on a few of those slow days the couple fish caught just happened to be the biggest fish of the week.
There were also some great days with over 10 fish brought to the boat. It just seems like the fish put on their ‘feed bags’ every once in a while, so you just have to be out there on the water when it happens.
Rainbows up to 17 pounds and bull trout up to 12 pounds have been caught lately, with even a few bigger fish hooked, but end up coming loose or breaking the line.
Looking forward to January’s fishing, as this is usually the month of our biggest fish of the year.
