I don't know much about baits or techniques however I know that there are quite a few different species in the lake. Bass ,Rainbows,Suckers,Perch and a few more I can't name.

Thanks for the info. Always wanted to fish for bass. hope the warm climate favors the fishing. Unlike in Alberta where the warmer the lake temp is, the crappier the fishing.
exkamiflyfisher pretty sure you just listed off every lure you could think of for bass. thanks for narrowing it down, lol


rodder008 - bcbasser is right, there is some hogs in Osoyoos Lake. 6 to 8 lbs fish are not uncommon. The trick with the is finding the fish and an area that isn't zooming with wakeboard boats. The north end of the lake in and arround the oxbows is a popular area the find the big bass. To narrow it down for you, big pumpkin tubes or carolina rigs are always a safe choice for this lake. Good luck...

i caught a 18.7 pound carp the bait i used there was corn.
