Weather and fishing have both been excellent in the Kamloops area the last week. Lakes below 3,000 feet are seeing some great mid-day chironomid hatches and the fish have really been on them. Some of the high elevation lakes are turning or just cleaning up right now, and some are still frozen rock solid.
Best flies for lower elevation lakes that have already turned over and are seeing prominent emergences have been chironomids in the way of the Zucchini, Black/Red Rib, Chromie/Brown Rib in sizes 16 and 18.
Occasionally the size 20 Olive Green/Black Rib has been the ticket to getting fish to bite when the going is tough. Tequila boobies and sunburst blobs have been excellent early morning and late afternoon choices when the fish are not keyed in on bugs.
Guided stillwater trips have been great thus far, even if you have never tried fly fishing before this is among the best fisheries of all to give it a go! If you have any questions, fill out the form below and I will happily get back to you as soon as possible.
