Behavior Of Trout:
The Kipawa Lake is a deep, clear lake which forms a perfect environment for trout. The gray trout is common but few people take the trouble to fish for it because they have failed in the past with traditional methods. The trout are about 50 feet deep in the summer, which is just above the thermocline. They bite better early in the morning until 10 o’clock and evenings after supper. They also eat in the afternoon but during the day they seem to start and stop constantly, then you can troll for 3 hours and not catch anything and then take a couple and then they stop again.
Trout is caught better during the bright sunny days with high pressure. A low pressure system that passes in the region can ensure that they stop eating for a day or two. Trout seems to like small lures that are silver and blue or silver and green and at Lake Kipawa they seem to love the bright pink with a silver top. Do not put scent on your lures; fish odours do not work in the north and it may even scare fish away.
Fishing For Trout In Early Spring And After Melting Ice
Immediately after the melting ice and within a few weeks, trout remains in shallow water. Very often it is close to the shores and fishing at shore with Cleos or Mepps Cyclops is very effective. You can also launch a boat.
You will find trout in rivers mouthes, in rivers, near peaks and rocky banks. The best place is in the black water near a sandbar. The sun heats water on sandbanks in the spring and trout come to enjoy the warmer water. Trout just waiting near sandbanks in the black water and food leads them there.
Different Methods To Fish Deep Water During The Summer
Triple Swivel Method: The method to triple swivel is the best way to fish for trout in deep water because you can use light equipment, you can feel the bottomless hang your lure and method is compared with stealth. You can feel when the fish are biting and you may well take a while to realize. Catching a trout with your golden rod gives a lot of fun. The only thing is you have to be in a boat moving slowly. If you have a bigger boat you will need an electric motor or a small motor behind. A small fishing boat with a 20 hp motor is the best thing of all.
Please see the chart below. You only need a light action rod with line, e.g. 6 lbs dark green. You can easily make the train at 50 or 60 feet with a weight of 2 oz. This is the ideal depth for gray trout in most lakes, especially on the Kipawa Lake in summer. You’ll need a triple swivel line 6 lbs test, a weight of 2 ounces and light style lure “flutter”. You need to move just fast enough so the lure starts to swim. The mono line 6 pound test produces almost no friction with the water so your lure will easily descend to the bottom. Using thicker or braided line is not effective because it produces too much friction with the water.
Start the engine and then clear the check button on your reel and slowly move backwards. On most reels a complete turn gives about a foot of line then slowly move to the desired depth. If you make 50 turns upside down it will be about 50 feet deep.
Weighted background walkers: You can place them easily in your tackle box and allow you to troll up to 70 feet with a 2 oz. They are not expensive and in small lakes you can troll directly to the bottom and quickly grind any side. The only drawback is that your lure is just 2 inches of lead, so you will have more clashes. You also have a weight of 2 ounces between the lure and your rod, so it is a lot more stress on the line between the lure and lead and the line can break, especially when the trout start to roll. The weight reduced a little battle, especially with smaller trout. This is a very effective way to fish the gray but not the best way. If the trout start to panic it will break the line between the walker and the lure.
The Dipsy Divers: The Dipsy Divers are small so they sit comfortably in your bait box. They bring your bottom line and when the fish bites, the clamps are released and you can free the fish without a fight. The problem with Dipsy Divers is that it is difficult to know how deep you are and so it pulls on your line when you’re trailing you must use a fishing rod and heavier line. With Dipsy Divers, when the diver reaches the bottom, your lure hits the bottom, too, so you lose more lures when they cling. The plunger itself may evade fish. It’s much better than steel and wire and it gives more pleasure than a downrigger but this is not the best way.
Line winches weighted (downriggers): The weighted winches line are very effective in lowering your line to an exact depth. They are very useful for large charter boats that cannot move slowly and have several fishermen at the same time. Everything else is negative. Using these winches can be very annoying You cannot feel the fish take your bait, you may not strike your fish when it bites and if you’re on a big boat with multiple lines, the vessel must keep moving to avoid tangling all lines. The result is too intense battle with the fish and you take no pleasure.
The weighted line winches are also very good for fish suspended in open waters such as the Great Lakes, but they are not practical for small lakes where fish live at the bottom and where the depth changes constantly. And a steel ball that passes at high speed in the water will scare most fish.
Metal Wire: In the old days, people used metal wire or plumb and tuna rods to fish for trout. Even if people are still using this technique it is the least effective and it is not really enjoyable. You must get a huge amount of line you must continually kicking your line and lure, and when you have a fish on the line, we would say that it comes from an old boot. However people still catch trout in this way and they like the practical side of it.
