2018-01-23 Fishing Reports

Fresh Water Fishing:

  • Ron visited Durrance Lake, saw no fishermen on the lake and no fish rising. On most Saturday mornings, casting bait from shore, Doug Dobbyn is willing to share fishing tips.
  • A 4+ pound rainbow reported caught in Langford Lake. Elk Lake fishing may be good this year due to continued stocking and less fishing pressure.

Salt Water:

  • No fishing, too windy.
