Happy New Year from Kerry Reed and all the staff at Reel Adventures Fishing Charters.

2013 is a upon us and so is more great fishing on Kootenay Lake.

So sit back and enjoy a preview of how to catch the big one on your next fishing outing with the Reel Adventures Charters Fishing Report

The past couple months have not been as productive as I expected.  However, the past couple weeks have helped make up for it.

November & December saw some inconsistent fishing.  Seems like the fish would only feed once a week. And if you were lucky enough to be out there on that day, it was rewarding.

Over the holidays, our fishing really began to get good though. Finally, maybe it’s just a late start to our fall fishery.

The past couple weeks we have had many days with many fish to the boat.  Some days catching up to 1a dozen fish has made it exciting. And it’s that time of year when we seem to catch our biggest fish.

In fact, last week, in two days we managed to hook into 20 fish ranging from 10 – 20 pounds. Those were a couple of hot days. I hope to see more of that throughout our winter.

What are they biting on???

A little bit of everything it seems. When the fishing has been slow, people are trying every lure in the box. But, when the fish are feeding, it’s the usual suspects that go to work.

We’re still catching on Bucktail flies. My favorites are the 203, 210, 215, and 228. Or for those that don’t know the numbers: Grey ghost, November Special, and black/white.

Also working at this time of year are the Bill Norman lures. Common colors like the purple/silver, black/silver, or the rainbow trout. These will work good throughout the winter, but make sure you slow your speed down for these lures.

And finally, my Lyman plugs have been working a bit also. Some on the surface, or some on downrigger.  It all depends what the fish want.  My favorites lately have been # 10, 55, 69, and 160.

Big fish season is here.  So, be patient and be rewarded !!
