Tunkwa Lake BC Fishing Report

By Al Patton, Tunkwa Lake Resort | Last updated: May 1st, 2019

Tunkwa Lake Pennask rainbow trout

A real mixed bag of weather up here at Tunkwa since the last fishing report. Sun, lots of wind, rain, even an all day snowstorm on Saturday! Mixed reports coming in from guests fishing. When the weather permits, guests have been into trout pretty good, fishing very shallow, in 3' -5' close to the banks. Size 16 chironomids (Whisky Dick, G'n'Rs, Black Sally's) have all been producing. Small Micro leeches (olive, or maroon coloured BMW's) have been working as well. Just fish them shallow! Sifting through lots of smaller trout, will keep you busy, and often when you hook a bigger one, it'll catch you off-guard! Our feeder creeks are up a bit, but not swollen, adding in any dirty water. Shorelines pounded by waves will be stirred up, but seem to settle out fairly quickly. Weather forecast is looking nicer, and we should see things continue to pick up as the lake warms up.

Have a great week and we look forward to see you soon!
