Nice catch. Too bad about the rod though.

A variation of the disappearing rod scenario has happened to most of us I'm sure.I lost a fly rod off the back of the boat on St Mary's lake years ago, and had to endure watching a big trout jumping around until it broke off!!

Nice shots abe. Do you use a hut or just sit in the open?

i just sit on a five galon bucket they work good and you can carry your gear in it too.

nice fish. Since you have been out lately can you report on the ice conditions. that would be great. I would love to take my kids somewhere not too far from West Kelowna.
Cheers,

Hey Abe are you from Langley bc ?? is coquihall lakes frozen ,is there a way in the back way instead of the lodge way ? any help be great

Not sure if Abe is around these days to answer your question. I have never fished Coq. Lakes but I doubt that it is frozen yet.
I live out of Chase and the lakes were starting to ice over when it warmed up. I suspect the same on the Coq.
No idea re:access other than via the lodge.

some bonehead put his truck through the ice on mamette lake today. unreal. I wouldn't go out on the ice right now with my quad. crazy how brave people get when fishing on ice. seems there's always deaths in the Okanagan every season. I have seen them jump over open water along shore in the spring, just to get out on the ice to go ice fishing.
