Tunkwa Lake BC Fishing Report

By Al Patton, Tunkwa Lake Resort | Last updated: June 29th, 2021

Tunkwa Lake rainbow trout

Fishing was spotty earlier in the week, but weekend fishing things really picked up! Weather seems to be the biggest factor right now.

Guests out trolling were getting into trout on wedding bands tipped with a small piece of worm or gang tolls with wedding band rigged behind them. Kwikfish and hot shots plugs, produced as well.

Fly fishers were fishing anywhere from very shallow water with nymphs, leeches and scuds to depth of 12 feet using chironomids. Various sizes chironies have been coming off with #16's still the most produced size, colours changing all the time. Pumkinheads have been doing well which tells one the damsels are close to coming off. We seen some mayflies hatching in the afternoons as well.

A couple of our guests reported some incredible action in the evenings, fishing very shallow using bright coloured bloobs/boobies, most fish being way bigger then average as well.

The resort has now reopened after travel restrictions. Some cabins and campsites are still available this summer so be sure to give us a call if you'd like to make a reservation.

Have a great week! :)
