We are having severe fishing withdrawal as our first trip of the season that was planned for Mother's Day weekend got ruined by gale force winds so we could not cross the Georgia Straight.( Salish sea)
Yesterday we were packed and ready and crossed from Deep Cove (
Cates Park) . A little lumpy but not bad . We arrived at our favourite place on Gabriola Island, Silva Bay Inn. I highly recommend them as the units are clean, kitchen well equipped, comfy beds , lovely grounds and a bbque . http://silvabayinn.ca/
We got settled and decided to head out to thrasher Rock for slack tide for lingcod. We used herring in a teaser head and landed one legal at 70 cm, they must be 65cm to be legal. We had to release two under size . This morning we knew it was windy out but decided we had to get out and try the slack tide for lingcod so we stayed close by fishing Gaviola Island by Rowboat point tucking in close to shore.
Got stripped a few times and landed one legal at 68 cm. Had to give up as winds picked up to 30 knots and tide started to move so it was impossible not to drift too fast. Tomorrow's forecast looks better so hoping to target lingcod then go after springs.

Photo thumbnail: Map of The Day: May 26, 2016

Owen Lake is a popular recreation lake with good fishing for rainbow trout and lake trout. Most of the rainbow trout are in the one- to two-pound range while the lake trout can reach up to 20 pounds. When fishing for rainbows, a Willow Leaf and worm is a good place to start. Another popular lure is the smaller size Apex Troutkillers in black or blue and with silver specks.

Fly fishers can try a stonefly nymph or Dragon Butler pattern. In the warmer weather, the rainbow trout will migrate to deeper reaches of the lake and a fishfinder can help locate the best depth to target these fish.
When going after lake trout, try using a Williams Wobbler, Flatfish or Rapala Minnow. Make sure to get your line down deep and, if necessary, use a downrigger.

If you are in the area, it may be worthwhile to explore nearby Parrott Lakes, a chain of four lakes, considered family-friendly, with good fishing and camping available. As well, nearby Tagetochlain Lake is worth exploring. Members on the Angler’s Atlas website (anglersatlas.com/lakes/1835) report that Tagetochlain Lake has a boat launch and supports a good population of char.

LAKE ACCESS
From Houston, head south along the Morice River Forest Service Road (FSR) staying left (east) at the 27-km fork, keeping on the Morice-Owen FSR. The road wraps around the east side of the lake and there is a forestry recreation site on the lake shore. The recreation site is a very popular camping spot and has space for 20 vehicle units. The site also comes with a boat launch and is close to Nadina Mountain trail.

Yellow Lake’s easy access and well stocked waters welcome anglers of all levels. This popular trolling lake lies south west of Penticton en route to Vancouver. Rainbow trout, kokanee and brook trout are all stocked in Yellow Lake. Your best bet is to try your luck in the cooler seasons. Brook trout are more active at cooler temperatures. Also, during the midsummer, the lake can see algae blooms. Both the rainbows and brook trout are average in size, but are tough fighters. There are perch in Yellow Lake, and these fish compete with the trout for resources. As a result, the trout may be on the smaller side to average sized, though they can be tough fighters.

There are good shore fishing opportunities along Yellow Lake. Highway 3A runs along the right-hand side of the lake. Standard gear is a good choice, and keep it light. Try your spinning gear with Dick Nites, Panther Martins and wedding bands. Many anglers do well trolling along the shoreline. Try the south shore, and troll slowly through different depths. A willow leaf produces well.

Yellow Lake is a popular ice fishing destination due to its proximity to Penticton. Locals concentrate their fishing near the bays closest to the parking lots. Jigging a hook with power bait or meal worm are the most common methods.

Yellow Lake is an excellent choice for fly fishing. There are shoals at both ends of the lake. Nymph patterns produce. A dragonfly nymph can work wonders. Try a searching pattern such as a ‘52 Buick, a halfback, or a Doc Spratley. Try your basic colours to start.

LAKE ACCESS
The lake is 25 km from Penticton. Follow Hwy 97 south past Kaleden and turn west onto Hwy 3A. The lake will be on the left side of the highway.There is a boat launch on the west end of the lake. Here you will also find a rest area with picnic tables, dock and washrooms. Pit toilets and a rough car top boat launch are found on the east side just off the highway. Yellow Lake has an aeration system on it. Please be very cautious when ice fishing.

Please note that there is an engine restriction of 7.5 kw (10 hp) in place for Yellow Lake.

Wolf Lake is a popular fishing destination for freshwater anglers, with catches up to six pounds. Bruce Bolton is the trout specialist at Tyee Marine in Courtenay. He says that late February and March is a huge month for this lake.

“The fish are getting ready to spawn at that time,” says Bolton, adding that the fish like “big presentations like Crokodiles, big leeches and big Muddler Minnows . five sometimes six inches long.”

The goal is to show strong movement, articulating the lures and flies so they move around. During the summer, trolling and fly fishing are popular on the lake. Worms always work well. In 2014, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC stocked 2,500 cutthroat trout in Wolf Lake. The Angler’s Atlas has started a new program for our members. Now members can “follow” their favourite lakes. Receive an update as soon as new information is posted about your favourite spots. Have something to say? Post to the pages of your favourite lakes and share videos, current conditions and tips to help out your fellow anglers. Visit www.anglersatlas.com for more information.

LAKE ACCESS
Wolf lake is located about 16 km northwest of Courtenay. From the town, follow the Comox Logging Road. Just before passing the Island highway turn right onto the Duncan Bay logging mainline. There is a boat launch and camping site located on Wolf Lake.
