Author Topic: Going fishing @ allouette lake this weekend...need help

I am going fishing at allouette lake this weekend and have no clue how to fish it or what type of baits to use. I am pretty terrible at fishing but I like it so an info is greatly appreciated. I was thinking maybe rapala type baits or spinners would work.

Fishing Report: Although the number of fish are great (with over 61,000 stocked up to 1990), the large size and the great depth of Allouette Lake make sure there is not a large number caught. Rainbow average about 1 lb. and Cutthroat can average 1 to 1-1/2 lbs. Lake Char can reach 20 lbs. or better. The steep drop off of the lake makes finding a good fishing spot difficult and the shallow end that would be good for fishing is heavily used with the campsites and picnic areas. The many bays and streams and the shoreline would probably produce the best results.

Will you flyfish or baitcast? Do you have a boat, what hp you got? Do you have a fishfinder?
I may be able to help you if any of the above relate to your situation.

I should be able to use my friends boat if he come with us. It is ten or twelve feet long with a 5 horsepower motor i think. I will probably try trolling and fly fishing. I do not have a fishfinder.

Ok good then theres hope for you. Troll a wet fly anywhere near a rocky shoreline or near a creak. But do it about 20 - 30 - 40 feet from the shore, you dont want to get a snag. I have had good luck casting from the boat when I was parked in a bay near the shore. Then just cast towards the deepest part of the lake in front of you and reel in. This is where a fishfinder is helpfull. Good luck.

thanks. as for lures, i was reading through some of the old posts abuot allouette and it seemed that wedding bands worked well. i think they would be worth a try. i also have lots of mepps spinners and some spoons so i will try them as well.

btw i have gone to this lake twice in the last two years and didn't do much serious fishing(mostly from shore, a little out of a camoe last year, i also seemed to imply that i was going to allouette a couple days ago but i made a mistake, i am actually going on may 4,5,6th.

Ah, camping, good choice. Just troll around and wait for those trout to bite. Sometimes it happans right away, sometimes hours. Be patient.

If you are using flies, anything green should work. One of the best places is to fish the drop off just down from the boat launch. try trolling up and down there or just drift and cast towards the middle, wait fo the sink and retrieve. There are some beautiful cutties in that lake!

i am really ticked off because I just lost the boat due to my friend getting grounded(sucks being a kid lol) I have and inflatable dinghy that I will bring and I will probably end up fishing at the mouth o gold creek quite a bit.
