Author Topic: Rainbow fishing

I was doing some research on a lake i'll be wheeling to and camping at this weekend and discovered that it's home to some Rainbow! Was thinking I might want to catch my dinner this time out, Any suggestions/tips on what I should use? (besides a fishin license of course

It depends on if you are using a boat or not. If you are using a boat I would suggest trolling a lake troll with a wedding band with a worm on the hook, this method usually does the trick. Good luck.

Go to the store and buy your self some blue fox spinners i dont think i ever get skunked with those things.

If you haven't already left...

Check to see if there's any bait bans on the lake - my favourite rainbow lake has them imposed. Trolling around a doc spratley in green used to be my dinner method until I picked up some ridiculous looking flies at a flea market. They come in a variety of types and have a little silver propeller on the head of them. The propeller spins as you troll, mimicking a struggling insect or some such thing. I get laughed at by other anglers for using it, but I end up being the one to laugh when I get more and bigger hits than the rest.

If you don't have a boat, see if you can find an area with a fairly deep drop-off where you're fishing from, you'll have better luck in the evening or early morning. The heat we've been having has been keeping the fish pretty deep during the day.

Since you didn't mention where you'll be fishing, I recommend checking to see if there are any resorts or lodges or anything on the lake. If so, give them a call and find out from them what the fish are currently taking.

Good luck, and have fun!
