Kootenay Lake Fishing Report — Chasing early spring Bull Trout

first_imgMarch is done and now it’s time to move into April as Kerry Reed of Reel Adventures Charters drafts up another few tips for fishing on Kootenay Lake with the Kootenay Lake Fishing Report.So read and enjoy.March saw some mixed weather patterns rolling in, so our days were hit and miss.  We did spend a lot of time on the rivers chasing early spring Bull Trout and we had a blast.The jet sled proved itself very helpful this spring on the rivers so far. The Kootenay river and other tributaries are full of Bulls in the Spring.  And when the ice came off, we began to target these fish. Bulls chasing spawning whitefish were pretty aggressive this year.Bull Trout between six and 12 pounds were caught on a daily basis.  A lot of fun was had by all who braved the early spring weather conditions.  And the end results were very rewarding.  We’re looking forward to the fall Bull Trout fishery as the Bulls chase spawning Kokanee up the rivers again in the fall.Kootenay Lake:The lake has been providing us with lots of action each day lately.  Most days saw us hooking into 10 – 15 fish between two-five pounds.  Although, we did have a few fish in the 10 Lb range last month, but few and far between.  Rainbows and Bull Trout up to 12 pounds were caught in the past month.  We also had our first opening for West Arm Kokanee at the beginning of this month. The Kokanee fishing was consistent and the sizes were good.  Most anglers were back at the dock with their limits within the first couple hours of the day.  Looking forward to what our spring weather could bring.  Our next couple months should prove interesting for the lake.  The Gerrard spawn will be the telltale sign of what is to become of our lake. Stay tuned……Duncan lake: Duncan lake has been fun and a nice change from Kootenay.  There seems to be a lot more people fishing there as well.  The Bull Trout fishing has been good and as the water warms up, the Kokanee fishing gets better and better. Nice to see a healthy population of both Bulls and Kokanee in this lake. We have had some great days up there so far with some double digit days with Bulls between five – 12 pounds.  Should be good fishing for a few more weeks or until the lake levels get really high. Our Lyman plugs have been producing best.  Surface fishing has been good, as well as the downriggers from 30 – 60ft has produced well. Definitely a nice change of scenery and fishing.Columbia River:The river is heating up nicely.  Rainbows, Walleye, and Pike are all cooperating right now.  We have had some spectacular days flyfishing for Rainbows.  Early spring rainbows are my favourite.  We have hooked into some monsters already. The average fish have all been the usual Columbia River size ranging between two to four pounds.  Although, we have hooked into some six and seven-pound fish in the past couple weeks.  And some even bigger that screamed our line, but were never to be seen.  Exciting spring action. Some resident Walleye have been sticking around this year also.  We usually don’t target these fish until late summer when they seem to really stack up in the river.  Although, we have been fishing for them lately with some great success.  Good to know there are a lot of options at this time of year.  Pike are also being caught while targeting Walleye. Remember to keep every Pike you catch, as they are not native to this system.  Walleye between one to four pounds have been caught lately, as well as Pike up to 18 pounds.What are they biting on??On the lake, we are catching most fish on the surface.  Bucktail flies have been my favourite technique.  Purples have been the most productive.  Common numbers of 203, 207, and 224 have worked best for me. As well as some greys such as number 202, 210, and 221.  And on the downrigger, we have been having success with our favourite Lyman plugs and flasher & hoochie combo. Our speeds are still relatively slow due to the water temperature,  but look to speed things up as the water warms up. On the river, we have been having most luck with the Rainbows on the fly.  Floating lines with an indicator and nymph have provided lots of action.  As well as sinking line while swinging streamers. The Walleye have been taking the usual bottom bouncer technique or jigs with twisters.  And the Pike have been hitting on just about anything, although we haven’t been specifically targeting them.Whats coming up:We are expecting the lake fishing to pick up even more as the water gets warmer.  So, expect lots of fish in April, May, and June.  Our river fishing should only get better and better as well. As the weather warms up and the bugs start hatching, the fish will become more and more aggressive.  Looking forward to the next few months of fishing. We are also looking forward to our upcoming Salmon/Halibut fishing season.  This year is expected to be another good run of Salmon and we still have a few openings to fill.  Drop me a line if you’re interested in filling your freezer with fish for the year. That about sums it up. Hope this helps with your fishing excursions this month.Tight lines………………….

Ending Supernatural was a community decision says Jared Padalecki

first_imgLos Angeles: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have said that it was a “community decision” to bring the curtains down on their hit show “Supernatural”. The series, which will culminate with its 15th season, features the two actors as the Winchester brothers who hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings. Speaking at the “Supernatural” convention in Las Vegas, Padalecki said, “This was a community decision”. He further said that there was never any pressure from The CW network and the studio to wrap up show, reported Entertainment Weekly. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka Ackles added that the show’s end was debated for months by both the cast and the crew. “Nobody wanted to see this show fizzle out. I think that it was everyone wanting to do the biggest service to the show that we could by going out strong. It just seemed like the writing was kind of on the wall as to when that was happening. “Everybody kind of felt that it was coming soon, and so it was just taking that leap of faith of going like, ‘Well guys, let’s get out the paint and paint that finish line because what we’ve accomplished is unlike any other’,” he said. The final season will consist of 20 episodes. The show is executive produced by Robert Singer, Andrew Dabb, Phil Sgriccia, Jeremy Carver, Eugenie Ross-Leming, and Brad Buckner. It is produced by Warner Bros Television, in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision.last_img read more

Schirmer had eight digs, six kills and four blocks.  Sekinger led the Buckeyes in kills with 10 while León led the team with 13 digs.Campbell, Sandbothe and Schirmer all received all-tournament recognition, while Schirmer was named the most outstanding player.After receiving the all-tournament team selection in Columbus after doing the same in the Buckeyes’ season-opening tournament in Oregon, Sandbothe said she believes having home court advantage was helpful in fixing mistakes made in Oregon, and for the future.“Getting a home court advantage really helped us to lean on what we needed to do,” Sandbothe said. “We’re still a pretty young team so having leadership come from the younger players is a huge part of what makes us work.”The team is scheduled to be back in action Friday at the Millenium Hotel Invitational. The Buckeyes are scheduled to face Syracuse at 4 p.m., followed by Ohio on Saturday at 10 a.m. and Xavier later that evening at 7 p.m. read more
