i am from new zealand now living in whistler and im a keen fisherman!the fish you catch here are alot different to what i am used to. i have never fly fished( all tho would like to learn) but do spin.
i have fished a few lakes in the area, alice, stump, edith, loggers and alpha. last time at alpha just on dark there were some huge splashes out on the lake, any idea what this may be an how to catch em! i did land a couple rainbow here.
also which lakes are catching the best at the mo??

Green Lake at Nicklaus North Golf Course: Park there, walk towards the lake. Take a right on the path. Follow five minutes. Come out at this beachy sandy area where theres an outlet stream slash river. Stand in the river facing the lake (be careful, as this is a soft bottom lake). Cast small ass gold spoons on like four pound line with two medium sized split shot. Hold on.

(waders are a must).

Have fun.

Nita lake by creekside is good for medium bows right now.
all you need is a weight, power bait and a hook and you can fish the power bait with a lot covering the hook then cast the weight out on the bottom and let the bait/hook float up. Its an attomatic fish.the best spot would be this little bay area along the valley trail.Its a small but very productive spot. landed 2 in half an hour.

The area is beside the circle with checkers in it.as for using the power bait, use either red or yellow power bait and i guess you can use a bunch of split shots on your line but have about a three foot leader and put a small ball with about a 5 centimeter circumferance and stick it on your hook. And if you didn't get anything I just said then use a small spinner and worm or a raibow coloured panther martin or a rainbow coloured rooster tail.

K, the simplest power-bait rig I can explain goes like this: Line from your rod to hook. Add two to three split shot about 3 feet before the hook. Add a gumball sized ball of Powerbait. Cast it out...wait for bite.

thnx louis, i was waiting for someone else to help me
the great Manchovy

If powerbait isn't working ... worms always work. Nothing like using the real thing to imitate the real thing. just use the old 50 cent bobber a hook and a worm. Easiest thing in the world. Off the train tracks you can get out on some rocks by the little islands. It's shallow but lots of fish. If you want a bigger fish go to alta but don't use bait in this lake. For my girlfriend who doesn't have a fly rod i just put a fly with a little weight on it and troll with a spincaster. My advice. Get a bellyboat and you will catch more fish.
VJB

hey thanks for all the advice, much appreaciated, got a couple a rainbow last nite at nita,
bass master 99

your right machovey,
Nita is the perfect place for a belly boat.
By the way VJB, im just curious as to how big those rainbows were and what u caught them off of.
VJB

both rainbows were round 25cm. caught them off the little rock platform thats down there using salmon eggs. would like to catch something bit bigger. where should i go? thanks for ya help
bass master 99

Go to what louis said at the top, Green has some BIG fish
Louis Vuitton

At the same spot, use medium sized spoons in brass slash gold (it reflects better in stained slash cloudy water than silver) and cast it out and let it sink down to the bottom, then do a jerk'n'reel retrieve with a few pauses put in here and there. You can get some good sized dollies that way there.
bass master 99

Hey louis what flies can you use beside streamers and baitfish patters. and are there any other lures
Louis Vuitton

Wooly Buggers, Sculpins, Flash-flies, etc. Also, at this time of the year, the fish are going to super lethargic, wanting to expend the least amount of enegery to get anything. What ever you use, go slowwwww.
bass master 99

what about zonkers? and what if you don't have waders
Louis Vuitton

K, you don't need waders for Green. Just cast out as far as you can and maybe use a clouser with a sinking line to help get it down faster. You want it on the bottom. Zonkers will work for sure, just twitch and pull then pause. Repeat.
VJB

excuse my ignorince guys but what are zonkers and a clouser???? i not used to ya lingo but love fishin an keen to catch em,
Louis Vuitton


Here is a Clouser minnow (for Green Lake, use white over green, plus others) and then there is a Zonker. Clouser is in this post, Zonker in the next.

VJB

bass master 99

does anyone know if theres fish in lost lake?
The Yak

Hey... Try Alta Lake. Huge Dollies and big Cutties

GOOD LUCK
bass master 99

the fly shop said there is but not many at all. I think ill stick to alta, nita , and green lakes for now at least.
Does anyone know how to catch the cutties and rainbows in alta at this time of year?
The Yak

streamer patterns
Louis Vuitton

Streamers man, or big gaudy (respect) patterns. If at Alta, go onto the dock and cast towards shore and bring it back to you, like really slow. Go slow, then slow that down and throw in the odd twitch.
bass master 99

which dock?
bass master 99

Louis V. help me out! im leaving tommorow
The Yak


The dock at rainbow park..

Here is a map for ya
