Trout fishing is SLOW on most lakes in the south island area. Anglers fishing Powerbait from shore have been doing OK. Fly anglers are doing well trolling leeches and general searching patterns such as Doc Spratelys and Carey Special. Fluorescent Pink and Chartreuse Powerbait Eggs have been the hottest bait recently. Trollers have been doing OK with the Baitrix Trout lures in Holographic colours, especially for larger fish. They have also been doing well trolling Apex Trout Killers with the police car one the best and the black with silver glitter spots taking second place. Flatfish and/or Kwikfish have also been effective in sizes 7 and smaller in Frog, Yellow with Red Spots or Blue/Silver. Smaller Rapalas in Rainbow Trout or Brown Trout patterns also work well. Lastly, Willow Leaf Lake trolls with a worm-tipped GIBBS Wedding Band will almost always catch some fish. By the way, all wild rainbows and cutthroats over 50 cm must be released in Cowichan Lake.

Scott Brown reported catching two nice rainbows at Elk Lake on December 28th on two yellow and two rainbow Berkley Power Eggs. He also lost some others. Wayne Zaccarelli reported catching and releasing 3 lb 11 oz and 3 lb 1 oz cutthroat trout at Cowichan Lake on December 27th.

Trout fishing is PICKING UP on most lakes in the south island area. Early this month the Vancouvwer Island Trout Hatchery started its spring stockings of catchable rainbow trout weighing from 216 to 233 grams each. On March 1st Shawnigan Lake received 3,322 trout and Dougan Lake received 450 trout. On March 2nd, Langford Lake received 1,200 trout, Durrance Lake 1,000 trout, Thetis Lake 750 trout and Glen Lake 500 trout. On March 4th, Prospect Lake received 2,000 trout, Fuller Lake 700 trout, Chemainus Lake 500 trout and Mayo Lake 250 trout. On March 5th, Elk Lake received 2,000 trout.

There have been reports of chironomid hatches with accompanying fish action in Elk, Langford and Prospect Lakes. Anglers fishing Powerbait from shore have been doing OK. Fly anglers are hitting fish while trolling leeches and general searching patterns such as Doc Spratelys and the Carey Special. Fluorescent Pink and Chartreuse Powerbait Eggs have been the hottest bait recently. Trollers have been doing OK with the Baitrix Trout lures in Holographic colours, especially for larger fish.

Trout fishing is GOOD on most lakes in the south island area. The releases of catchable rainbows in most lakes in March really helped. As the water warms, the fish will be more actively feeding and it should be really good fishing.

The 4th Annual Elk Lake Fishing Derby was held on Saturday and LOTS of fish were caught. There were approximately 400 entrants and everyone had a good time, even if it was windy out on the lake. In the trout category, first place went to Darren Kitson for a 6.3 lb rainbow trout caught on a black leech pattern fly. Second place went to Tom Vaida for a 5.4 lb rainbow trout, also caught on a black leech pattern fly. Third place went to Rick Jensen for a 5 lb rainbow and Riley Mace took fourth place with a 4 lb rainbow.In the bass category, Dave Bissenden took first place with a 5.1 lb bass. Logan Lesuire came in second with a 4.4 lb bass. Chad Keogh placed third with a 4.4 lb bass and Kellen placed fourth with a 4 lb bass. All the bass caught were smallmouths.

Trout fishing is GOOD on most lakes in the south island area. As the water warms, the fish will be more actively feeding and it should be really good fishing.

The Vancouver Island Trout Hatchery continued its spring stockings of catchable rainbow trout weighing from 216 to 279 grams each. On March 31st Prospect Lake received 2,000 trout, Langford Lake received 1,216 trout and Ida Anne Lake received 100 trout. ON April 8th, Elk Lake received 1,500 trout and on April 9th Shawnigan Lake received 2,625 trout. On April 10th, Elk Lake received another 500 trout. On April 12th, Langford Lake received 1,384 trout, Durrance Lake 1,000 trout, Thetis Lake 750 trout and Glen Lake 500 trout.

Anglers fishing Powerbait or worms from shore have been doing OK. Fly anglers are hitting fish while trolling black leeches or black & red or purple micro leeches and general searching patterns such as Doc Spratelys and the Carey Special. Fluorescent Pink and Chartreuse Powerbait Eggs have been the hottest bait recently. Trollers have been doing OK with the Baitrix Trout lures in Holographic colours for larger fish. They have also been doing well trolling Apex Trout Killers with the police car one of the best and the black with silver glitter spots taking second place. Flatfish and/or Kwikfish have also been effective in sizes 7 and smaller in Frog, Yellow with Red Spots or Blue/Silver. Smaller Rapalas in Rainbow Trout or Brown Trout patterns also work well.

Trout fishing is GOOD on most lakes in the south island area. As the water keeps warming, the fish are more actively feeding on the increased insect activity. However, there have been algae blooms on some of the lakes making fishing a little bit more difficult. Anglers fishing Powerbait or worms from shore have been doing OK. Fly anglers are hitting fish while trolling black leeches or black & red or purple micro leeches and general searching patterns such as Doc Spratelys and the Carey Special. Fluorescent Pink and Chartreuse Powerbait Eggs have been the hottest bait recently. Trollers have been doing very well with the Rhys Davis Baitrix Trout lures and UV Mini StripTeasers for larger fish. They have also been doing well trolling Apex Trout Killers with the police car one of the best and the black with silver glitter spots taking second place. Flatfish and/or Kwikfish have also been effective in sizes 7 and smaller in Frog, Yellow with Red Spots or Blue/Silver. Smaller Rapalas in Rainbow Trout or Brown Trout patterns also work well. Lastly, Willow Leaf Lake trolls with a worm-tipped GIBBS Wedding Band will almost always catch some fish. By the way, all wild rainbows and cutthroats over 50 cm must be released in Cowichan Lake.

Trout fishing is FAIR on most lakes in the south island area. As the water keeps warming, the fish are going deeper to find cool water. Fly fishing has been really good in Elk Lake recently. Fly anglers are hitting fish while trolling black leeches and Wolly Buggers or black & red or purple micro leeches and general searching patterns such as the Carey Special. Anglers fishing Powerbait or worms from shore have also been doing well. Fluorescent Pink and Chartreuse Powerbait Eggs have been the hottest bait recently. Trollers have been doing very well with the Rhys Davis Baitrix Trout lures and UV Mini Strip Teasers for larger fish. They have also been doing well trolling Apex Trout Killers with the police car one of the best and the black with silver glitter spots taking second place. Flatfish and/or Kwikfish have also been effective in sizes 7 and smaller in Frog, Yellow with Red Spots or Blue/Silver. Smaller Rapalas in Rainbow Trout or Brown Trout patterns also work well. Guy Hebert landed a nice 18 cutthroat from Cowichan Lake on a trolled green flatfish. Lastly, Willow Leaf Lake trolls with a worm-tipped GIBBS Wedding Band will almost always catch some fish. By the way, all wild rainbows and cutthroats over 50 cm must be released in Cowichan Lake.
