Well, this is the year that Reel Fishing Adventures goes into retirement, as promised, earlier last year!  I do want to thank all of those faithful contributors from over the years who, as I did, tried to keep interest up in the sport of fishing and provide as up to date reports on the fishing as they could, you guys know who you are!  The website has been around since 2001 and provided thousands of reports over those years, and the feedback was almost always positive, I mean, have to have the odd whiner in everything these days!  The site itself will remain "on line" for some time yet, as that is just how the Internet works these days, so my rants other articles will remain in view for a while.  What will be deleted will be the actual fishing report articles, so your all gonna have to wing it on your own now!  For those that still wish to let me know how they're doing I'll be more than happy to keep in touch via the email, either through this site or else reelfishingadventures@cablelan.net . There is no doubt I'll still have a few rants to put on the books before the lights go out, in fact, there will be a one on the new Twin Anchors docks over in Old Towne Bay!  Thanks again fishing dudes, we've had a good run!!

17-05-23  Lac la Jeune
We did a couple days at LLJ, our final day cut short with huge winds all day long and then snow (photo)!  The hours I did get to fish were actually quite productive and I caught more on the fly than on hardware for a change.  Using a green micro leech or a green Spratley, and working the dropoff zones produced 4 nice fish (photo) in just over an hour!  Pretty decent fishing!  I tried trolling various hardware stuff and the best rig was a small chrome flatfish which I trolled off the fly rod with sinking line.  I must say that the hits were pretty explosive from fish this size, allot of fun!  Pretty quiet on the lake for other anglers, I doubt if there were 10 other campers in the park so that meant minimal anglers on the lake.  All in all another grand trip, this lake is a definite "must do" over the summer, as the fish never seem to disappear! 

17-05-18  Gardom Lake
The Mrs. and I did a morning kayak on Gardom, beauty day out there.  Here's the secret to going fishing more guys, get your wife a kayak and let her paddle about whilst your ripping fish lips!!  Quite a few boats out, again, but not crowded.  The only crowded spot was where there were 8 bobber fisherman all in a small group, again, working fish down below!  I did see a few come in off the bobber so it without a doubt works, I just don't have that kinda patience to sit there for hours watching a blasa wood bobber!  We were out for about 3 hours and some of the boats never left the same spot, nah, not for me.
We cruised most of the lake, I did pick up 2 smaller rainbows on the fly, sinking line and a green Spratley fished down in that 10-15' range, off the dropoffs.  A few other tugs and that was it, great fish on the flyrod again though.  I was thinking, if its this busy now (both launches full of trucks!) what the heck is it gonna be like in the summer, yikes!!


17-05-15  White Lake
Went out and got a morning fish in before the big rain hit again.  I spoke to a fly guy at Gardom the last time we were out and he said White was fishing very good!  So, I spent a total of about 2.5 hrs on the lake, total of 4 rainbows to the net and one break off.  Nothing huge, biggest in that 1.5 lb range but all scrappy fish and lots of fun on the fly rod!  The hook that did the damage was a green micro leech, fished on a full sink line. I fished that large shoal out in front of the cabins on the main part of the lake, I never see to many guys fishing it.  I would just go in to about 15', turn the motor off and then drift.  The fish I caught were marking in that 20-30' zone and in 40-50' of water, and thats where I'd let the sinking line take the leech, worked great!  I did try trolling some gear down at the same depth but not a bite, the fly was the way to go today.  A half dozen other boats out, mostly fly guy bobber fisherman!  Its funny, when I went in to shore there was a group of 4 boats (
photo) all huddled in close to one another, bobber fishing!  And they slam us for using hardware, hah, a bobber and a fly with synthetic material and a brass bead head, really?  I always like ragging on them too!

17-05-02   Mara Lake
Just for the heck of it I've decided to throw in a few reports just to keep some anglers interested!  No, they're not going to be detailed but, give everyone a little taste of what's maybe happening, from big lakes to small.

Beauty day on Mara, actually my first time out this year, a new record for me for waiting so long!  Water temp 50 F, clarity not to bad, no big run off junk on the lake yet.  Pretty slow couple of hours, nothing by the river mouth but I did manage two "just legal" lakers (photo) and one mini kokanee (photo) !  Lakers on Cop Car Apex at 52' and kok on blu/chrome Coyote at 32'.  No other bites, quite a few boats out, launch in good shape!

Kal Lake
Dave Ulvaan was out on Kal Lk today and got rid of his laker jinx, atta boy Dave!!  (photo)(photo).
