Trout Bite Rolls Forward
Trout fishing at Buck’s Lake remained consistent over the past couple weeks with anglers landing easy limits of pansize rainbows and brookies.
Bryan Roccucci of Big Daddy’s Guide Service said Bucks Lake just keeps kicking out fish. There are big numbers of small brook trout around, but certain areas are holding larger than average fish. You just need to stay on the move until you find those better quality trout.
For rainbows, the Bucks Creek Arm is a a good bet. You’ll want to work the bottom in areas that are 20 to 40 feet deep. Sep’s Pro Secrets and Dick Nite Spoons are both working well for ‘bows.
Anglers who want kokanee are advised to work Haskins Channel down toward the dam. The ‘kokes are down around 40 feet. Roccucci reported that the salmon are hitting Uncle Larry’s spinners teamed with dodgers.
For mackinaw you’ll need to seek out areas of deep water. The average mack is going 2 pounds, but much larger fish are possible. The top offerings for mackinaw have been either a 4 inch rainbow pattern Rapala or a 3 inch pearl colored Flatfish. Of course, spoons will draw strikes too.Back To Reports
