Well now that I am sure I was not wrong I will let you know I hit the LSR on Sunday. I fished it for the first time last September and had to do 3 more trips before it closed at the end of October. I fell in love with it last fall and from my experience on Sunday it seems like 2 different rivers. I was told it can be tough in the early season and it definitely was. I had a couple hits and that was about it. Saw alot of 5 and 6 inchers fallow but never saw any big Greyling or Bulls. The fact that it was close to 30 degrees may of had something to do with it.
I find this river very intriguing and I plan on making the trip atleast once a week to see how it changes over the season.

you went this past sunday? what were you trying and at what bridge? ive been told too its tough in early season. there isa BUlly that lives under one of the bridges, but hes tricky to catch, and he likes 6 inch streamers that are white, purple, black, and shiny with tinsel, just a tip


i think once i get back from my holidays in Manitoba, ill hit LSR up more often. Id like to more, but the wifes work is under staffed at the moment, and i can usually only get away on sundays for the time being.

Hey Mike

I actually tried at both bridges. When I went there last year I had the most success under the first bridge, even though most told me the second much better. I found many 16"+ Greyling under the first bridge the first time I was there. When my brother-in-law and I went the first time we starting throwing Raps and Buzz Bombs because we wanted to see if there were any Bulls hiding. We both had fish with our first casts and was surprised to see Greyling going nuts for these lures. I am just starting out with the fly rod and feel these spot is a great place to improve.

Yeah I posted that up on the old forum... best one I have seen brought in from the Mc, I believe Brady landed a good one out of there as well at sometime??? That hole gets hit hard but for a 1hr fish its convienent.

However, I haven't spent as much time on the Mc as I woudl like, so time will tell... Fell in love with a new river last year, hit a hatch and landed 40+ fish in less than 2 hrs... about 75% grays, 25% bows... biggest was about 16inch+...

June 16th is coming close...

Split..

yep thats right. but the wife works her magic and makes fish patties out of them, and then tops them with onions that have been soaked in vinegar for a while. mmmmmmmmmm. Fish patties are boneless. Boils them first and flakes away the meat off the bones. This is how we eat our rocky mountain whites. Although HuntingDan gave me a Smoker, so i might try that with them this year. Im 90 % a catch and release angler any given time........... but i always keep my limit when im on waters that im allowed to keep rockies.

Man it is easy to get locked into a mindset.

Filet and cook , filet and cook.

I love fish cakes. Even more if the fish is smoked first. Excellent idea, thanks.
