fishing tips and tricks
 Apr 29, 2002; 07:14PM - Lake Cachuma Bass and Trout trolling techniques
 Category:  California Freshwater Lakes
 Author Name:  webmaster
Lake Cachuma Bass and Trout trolling techniques Tip&Trick Description 1: My first time fishing Lake Cachuma was this last weekend April 27th 2002 and I will let you in on a secret this is a fine lake with great staff excellent fishing and abundant campsites. I was very impressed with the guys at the marina ( Jim and Allen) for giving us great tips for fishing their lake without holding back any information necessary for a first timer to their lake. Right out of the marina he told me to troll straight thru the center of the lake and we would be sure to get bit and he was right. Less than 10 minutes from the launch ramp right where he suggested we caught the first fish a nice largemouth bass about 3-4 lbs and lost the first hook up as we were surprised to get a strike so soon. This fish jumped clear out of the water and fought like a much larger fish than it actually ended up being.
Lake Cachuma Bass and Trout trolling techniques Tip&Trick Description 2: We released the bass and continued anxious to get to the trout which is what we were after. On the way to the next spot Jim and Allen had given us directions to we saw 4 deer on the shore grazing like they owned the place (which I guess they did) We set our sites on the points jetting out along the far side of the lake about 200 feet offshore. Instantly off one of the points both the reels went off as we were trolling rainbow trout colored Yo-zuri Emperor Minnows and L-Jack series lures on 4 and 6 lb test at a fairly slow troll. First fish fell off but I managed to get mine to the boat and into it for supper that evening. We did a turn around and went right back over the same spot and sure enough another missed opportunity. Back we went again with another 2 strikes managing to get one in the boat for a better meal for the 3 of us eating that night. Back and forth again for nothing and we decided to give the opposite bank a try.
Lake Cachuma Bass and Trout trolling techniques Tip&Trick Description 3: On the other side of the lake were the serious bass guy's fishing the bow of their sleek boats with the chairs and trolling motor on the bow. We steered clear of them and moved again about 200 feet off the shoreline and continued our trolling pattern slow and parallel to shore. We started noticing the wind more and more as we headed back towards the launch ramp noticing there was only one jacket made it to the boat and it was mine! We again managed to get another rainbow to strike right out of the water it jumped and then a small battle and into the boat it came. We were done now 1 fish each for dinner and one released bass in about 2 hours fishing time. Now it was back to camp to make dinner and get warm. A jacket is a good thing to bring on any lake as the wind always decides to blow in the afternoon. I must tell you that the guy's at the marina tackle shop know their stuff about where the fish are biting and what they are biting on. Without their tips we may have come home empty handed as several others had that day. Good luck if you get a chance to fish Lake Cachuma and be sure to say hello the the great guys at the tackle shop near the launch ramp it may pay off big time for you in the long run.....Fish on! <'))))><

Fall Coho Fishing In BC CANADA

Weekly Fishing Reports (Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert and Meziadin North)

Noel Gyger

September October 24 to October 31, 2010

Dear Fishing Friends:

SUMMARY: Angling for all Salmon in our rivers is over for another year signified by the Coho closure on October 31. In general I think it was a good year. Steelhead is the only target fish now along with the smaller resident Cutthroat Trout, Dolly Varden Char, Bull Trout and White Fish. The weather has been good all week with lots of sunshine and frosty mornings. The rain has arrived on the weekend but should not cause much harm as most of it will stay in the mountains as snow. Fishing for Steelhead, Trout and Char using fly, spin and conventional gear has been excellent.
The Skeena River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead continues although most fish are in their tributary rivers by now.
The Kalum River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Coho is fantastic!
The Kitimat River was low and clear all week. Trout anglers caught lots of Trout on the Kitimat River and her tributaries. Float fishing with some variation of live worms has been the most effective for Trout. Some Fly fishers have also had success fishing for Trout. Minnow patterns or Egg patterns have been the most popular. One Fly Fisher reported hooking 2 Coho on a 5 wt. rod. He also reported that he got his 'Butt' kicked trying to land them. Lots of Coho were caught on the Kitimat this week but they were all various stages of spawning colors. This is normal for this time of year. It appears that the Kitimat Harbour Winter Chinook Fishery is starting. Check out the Ron Wakita report below.
The Zymoetz (Copper) River is clean enough to fish and I have many reports of some great Steelhead catches with both fly and spin rods. This week guide reports came from Ron Wakita, Ariel Kuppers and Andrew Rushton. Thank you to all of the fishing guides who sent reports and photos. It is very much appreciated!

Last minute RIVER FISHING DATES available:
- Day Bookings - in November are still available.
- Lodge - November 1-7 Copper River for Steelhead
Lots of day bookings available for Zymoetz (Copper River) in November. BEST fly fishing for Steelhead in the world awaits you. Contact Noel to book NOW.

NOW BOOKING for 2011: Let me know if I can be of service to book you with the 'best' fishing guide and/or fishing lodges for both river and ocean. There are NO extra charges to book through me, just a lot of free information and advice from a person with years and years of fishing and fish guiding experience. It is like hiring two guides for the price of one. I will promptly answer your questions and concerns. Contact Noel to book NOW.

Kitimat River
The Kitimat River was low and clear all week. Trout anglers caught lots of Trout on the Kitimat River and her tributaries. Float fishing with some variation of live worms has been the most effective for Trout. Some Fly fishers have also had success fishing for Trout. Minnow patterns or Egg patterns have been the most popular. One Fly Fisher reported hooking 2 Coho on a 5 wt. rod. He also reported that he got his 'Butt' kicked trying to land them.

Lots of Coho were caught on the Kitimat this week but they were all various stages of spawning colors. This is normal for this time of year.

Oct 26 2 Coho were reported caught at the Pump House. The angler I spoke to said, 'One was bright silver while the other had started to turn'.

Oct 27 Kyree Dos Santos and Athan Ivanaki landed 15 Trout using Bubba's Bait Dew Worms and Gibbs pink wool Gibbs Floats. They were fishing one of the tributaries of the Kitimat River.

Oct 28 Kyree and Athan landed 3 Coho on the Kitimat River. Well done Kyree and Athan.

Oct 29 Kyree Dos Santos and Athan Ivanakis hooked 3 Coho and bunch of Trout. Well done guys. I apologize for no photos but I had not received them at the deadline for posting this Fishing Report.

Anglers are reminded that Coho closes on the Kitimat River Oct 31. The regulations state: Kitimat River 'Nov. 01 - Dec 31 No fishing for Coho'

With Coho closing on the Kitimat River early next week, anglers will focus their efforts on the Kitimat River to Cutthroat Trout. Fly fishing for Trout is very popular on the Kitimat River but be careful. When Trout fishing on the Kitimat River, there is always the possibility of hooking Coho or even the odd Steelhead.

We have some great Trout fishing on the Kitimat River due to the efforts of the Kitimat Hatchery. We are indeed fortunate to have the Kitimat Hatchery on the Kitimat River.

Douglas Channel
Richard from MK Bay Marina reports Humpback Whales in the Kitimat Harbour this week. 'They were having breakfast right in front of the Marina' said Richard. Richard and I both agreed that the Humpback were in the Kitimat Harbor feeding on the Winter Chinook or some bait fish. Either way the Humpbacks are a good sign that there are Winter Chinook in the Kitimat Harbor. Richard was going to try to take some pictures for this Fishing Report but I had not yet received any at the deadline for this report. Anyone interested in viewing these Humpback Whales are always welcome to view them from the MK Bay Marina Restaurant.

Oct 12-13-14 Ferd Wuensche hooked 24 Winter Chinook fishing with Ray Hepting in the last 3 days. Ferd said, 'We had a bunch break off. We limited out 3 anglers almost every day we went out. Sounds like an awesome 3 days of Winter Chinook fishing! Well done guys. Ferd and his group were fishing with the Gibbs Highliner Flasher with Rhys Davis Anchovy Teaser and Rhys Davis Anchovies.

It appears that the Kitimat Harbor Winter Chinook Fishery is starting. We have Charter boats available for any angler wishing to get out on the Douglas Channel. Please contact Noel to book.

New Products

We just received our Mustad fishing accessory order that I placed at the recent Redl Sports Tackle Show . Mustad produces some exceptional fishing products at very good pricing. These would make excellent stocking stuffers for any angler.

Thank You to everyone for providing photos and info to this Fishing Report.

Good Health and Good Fishing!

Sincerely and Cheers Ron Wakita

Andrew Rushton: Kalum River Lodge

Hi Noel

October fishing has been good for most of the month. We did have a period of high water but most of the month fishing was very good for both Steelhead and Coho. We were still catching bright Coho mid Oct. Rivers have been dropping very quickly now with the cooler weather this week.

What's Next?

There is no doubt, I about it ....Coffee and Goldsborough Creeks had made me an addict!

I needed fish.

I needed more fish, bigger fish, and wider variety of fish, preferably salmonids.

Every time we went to Hood Canal, to visit our friends out there (John and Mary Miller, from Seattle) who had a summer cottage quite close to the Twanoh State Park, I took my fishing tackle. But I didn't know much about salt-water fishing yet, and autumn, not summer-time, was the best time to find interesting fishing in Hood Canal. We were always there in the summer-time, not autumn. So I messed around with sculpins, perch and flounders.

I learned the hard way about the spines on the backs of sculpins one day, when I kicked one of them away from me in the canoe, and its spine went through my running shoe, and imbedded itself into my toe. Gawd that hurt!!!

When I'd visit my football teammate buddies, Dave and Scott, who lived out near Arcadia Point on Hammersly Inlet, we'd often spend a good part of the day watching the tides. At mid-low tides, we'd head out to the point with fishing tackle. As the tides dropped, a really long sand-bar would appear, beginning at the point and running diagonally across the inlet, to straight out from the Puhns house. We'd spend many long summer hours messing around on that sand bar turning over rocks to see hermit crabs to scurry away, fishing for mud-sharks, the occasional sculpins, and whatever else might be lurking on the bottom of the part of Hammersley Inlet. Occasionally, we'd split open a mud-shark and extract the livers, to use for bait to draw in the sea-gulls, so that Kim, the Puhns aging golden golden labradour, could chase them.

But neither Hood Canal nor Hammersley Inlet in the summer-time really offered the kind of fish and fishing that I was seeking. I wanted trout, steelhead and salmon. Bigger and in more quanity than Coffee or Godlsborough Creeks could offer. Since most of the time my transporttion as a kid was limited to my trusty Schwinn bicycle or my 16-hand high quarter-horse, who was named 'Bay', the range of my wanderings was somewhat limited.

What to do to, for a solution to this dilemma???

At about that same time, I discovered the Boy Scouts of America. After months and month of pleading with my parents, I finally wore them down, and they conceded defeat. They finally let me join.

Ken O'Dell's Troop 110 met every Wednesday evening, from 7-9 pm, in the Mountain View School gym/multi-purpose room. It was a 10-15 minute drive there from our family farm, a drive that one of my parents had now committed to making twice weekly on Wednesday evenings, for the next several years.

I literally cruised through the scouting ranks: Tenderfoot, 2nd class, 1st class, Star, Life, and became Washington State's youngest ever Eagle Scout at the age of 13, in 1963. Much of the scouting program dove-tailed so closely with the rural skills that I learned living on the farm, and my personal interests in science, nature, conservation and the outdoors, that it really was all just an extension of who I was, and who I was becoming. I found very little about the entire program that challenged me very much, and it was a whole lot of fun! I went on to become inducted into the 'Order-of-the-Arrow', and become a Jr. Assistant Scout Master. I earned the bronze and silver palms, as my collection of merit badges grew, after I'd achieved scouting's highest rank.

Scouting also provided my first introduction to mainland British Columbia, when I attended an international scouting Jamboree in Penticton, BC, in 1967. I don't know what all the other scouts on that Greyhound charter bus were thinking after we'd crossed the border, headed up the Fraser River, then took a right turn at Hope, and headed east into the mountains. But I remember very clearly what I was thinking. I was wondering what kind of fish resided in those small streams, lakes, and rivers that we were driving by constantly! Clearly, I would need to re-visit British Columbia at some point in time, after university.

I didn't know it at the time that I joined, but the Scouting program would give me far greater access to the waters that I would need in the future, to feed my fishing addiction.

Not long after I'd joined Troop 110, our first week-end camp-out was coming up. My father gave me an old vintage WW II canvas, steel-framed ruck-sack (the same one thar carried the two Goldsborough steelhead through downtown Shelton a couple of years later, as described in my previous story). He also gave me army surplus cutley, a mess kit, and canteen. I don't remember exactly where it came from, but an army surplus down sleeping bag was soon added to my growing list of outdoor gear too.

Prior to the camp out, several Wednesday evenings at Scouting meetings were devoted to menu planning. We were divided into four person teams, and told to plan the menu for our team for the camp-out weekend. Not only would we be cooking and eating our planned menu together, but we were also made responsible to equitably split up the food on our grocery list, then make certain that our mothers included what was on each member's list in her grocery shopping the week before the camp-out.

The camp-out weekend finally came.

Early Friday evening, after school was over for the kids, and the adults had finished their work for the week, we assembled at the Mountain View School. Scoutmaster O'Dell had recruited some on the parents to drive us to the 'camp-out' campsite. We loaded our packs into the cars, bailed in ourselves, then proceeded down the hill from Mountain View, took a right turn at the bottom of the hill to Railway Avenue, turned right onto Railway Avenue, then out towards Shelton Valley....the very same route I travelled every day, from our family farm to school!

Then for me, it got even more bizarre! We turned onto the Greystone Cement road, drove up that road past the cement works, to the Goldsborough Creek dam. Just across the Simpson Timber Company railroad tracks from the dam, on the wooded flat next to the creek, was the place that in very short order, as packs were unloaded and tents went up, was converted to become our weekend 'camp-out' campsite.

My first scouting 'camp-out' had brought me nearly home! Imagine my surprise!!! We were camping at one of my personal playgrounds, which I profiled in my previous story. If I wanted, I could walk home from there in about 25 minutes .....

But I didn't, or course. I stayed, and enjoyed my very first camping experience, along with about 20 other scouts, and three or four adults.

On Saturday, we hiked up the rail grade, to the second, upper Goldsborough Creek dam. I'd heard rumours that there was one, but had never been there before. I could already see that this Scouting program was going to open up some new worlds for me. Access to more waters to fish was one of the worlds that excited me more than just a little!!!

Next time: the Olympic Mountains and its waters.

Tight lines, Gary Miltenberger
