Tunkwa Lake BC Fishing Report

By Al Patton, Tunkwa Lake Resort | Last updated: September 16th, 2019

Tunkwa Lake Pennask rainbow troutFall fishing has started to turn on this past week! Surface water temperatures are now just under 60F. and will be slowly dropping. Fish will be feeding hard to fatten up for the winter. This weekend saw some windy unstable weather, but those who could handle it, got into rainbow trout.

Kwikfish or Bingo Bugs trolled shallowed had some great action on bigger fish for our guests, with tales of fish hitting violently and heading in the opposite direction only to be busted off and not even seen. Fish also were caught on Blue Fox spinners fished in and around the sparse weeds, again in fairly shallow water. Guests fishing worms under a float, produced as well.

Stripping attractor flies (K-Marts, Mini-Marts, Patrol Cars, and Blobs) along the weed lines in approx. 9', produced nice trout for me, with fish landed up to 4lbs, even busted off a few, knot failure on a couple, one even took me into the backing, never did see it but I did get my fly back.

Today we awoke to temperature right at 0C, fall is here! We have a couple of cabins still available for this upcoming weekend, including Log Cabin #1 for the nights of 19th to 21st. It is a great time to come up and try the fall stillwater fishing!
