Tunkwa Lake BC Fishing Report

By Al Patton, Tunkwa Lake Resort | Last updated: September 3rd, 2018

Nice rainbow trout from Tunkwa Lake

Chironomid fishing the past week has been excellent for the larger Pennask strain of rainbows fishing the deepest part of the lake. Chironomid hatches have been all though the deep water of the lake, size 12's and the odd larger chironomid from dark green to olive to watery olive with most having red butts has been coming off. Over the weekend fishing was a bit tougher possibly the weather system that was arriving with heavy rain last night. Fish weren't on a feeding frenzy but were still feeding right off the bottom on various patterns of green. Guests trolling black/silver fleck Kwikfish did well, trolling flies the Blue Maroon's and PumkinHead's were producing as well. Worms under a float also produced fish. With nice stable weather this week, fishing should get good again. Late yesterday afternoon the chironomid hatch got heavier again.

Guest heading down to the nearby Thompson River, are having good success fishing Jack salmon and Springs. Sockeyes have been very spotty passing through here so far.
