    Default Lake Louise Lake Trout

    Has anyone fished Lake Louise for Lake trout when the ice first goes out? I would like to try trolling for some Lakers as soon as the lake opens up and would appreciate any tips/advice.
    Thanks!

    thats about the best time you can fish the lake for lakers. when ice first goes the fish are cruising the shallows near the shore. dont have to fish too deep, as summer wears on the heat drives the fish deep. good luck

    When the ice goes out look for sandy shorelines and fish shallow with Kwikfish or Flatfish in the larger sizes. Run your boat in a "S" pattern and don't think you are too shallow. Run your lures 125' to 150' back and hang on. I have caught trout in water where my prop was digging sand.
    I believe that they come in the sandy shallows to rub the leaches that attach themselves to them during the winter.
    Concentrate your efforts from 2' to 10' and make sure you have a temp guage. You are looking for water in the 49 degree range.
    The best beaches have streams entering them. The previous world record came from a spot like this.

    I have. The biggest rapala you can buy seems to work, as do k-15s like you would use for kings. There are a lot of fish in that lake and the first few days are a lot of fun.
