Author Topic: birkenhead lake

i am going to birkenhead lake for some fishing soon, we will be on a boat, just wondering if anyone has experience fishing this lake and can offer any tips?

Eagle 1

Been there dozens of times. Having a boat is a real asset.

Best results I've had were up at the entrance of Sockeye Creek. It's about 1/2 way down the lake on the same side as the boat launch.

Try a bunch of different offerings. I did a review a few weeks back. Remember to release all Bull Trout. There are no Dolly Varden in the lake, so if you think it is a DV, it's a BT.

You can also fish where Phelix Creek enters. You can wade out there and try something in the current.

If you are trolling, try a willow leaf/ford fender with a wedding band/worm or you can try some trout Rapalas. With my sonar, the fish were sitting real low. Like more than 100' low.

Good luck!!

Thanks for the tips, we didnt have a downrigger on the boat yet, so i just trolled with a 2 ounce weight and about 6-7' of leader to a fraser river rainbow plug, beautiful lake but got skunked. quiete a ways to come for me about 4 and a half hours, so we missed first bite, werent fishing till about 10 and then it got rough. I did get 3 good strikes within the first 5 minutes but then the lake started to blow a little, didnt see anyone having much success. O well still nice to be fishing
