Bonaparte Lake, WA
« on: June 10, 2021, 08:57:10 AM »
I finally got up to my family's cabin over Memorial Day to do some fishing.  First time with the boat and I was targeting the Mackinaw's I read were in there.  Or a Tiger if one decided to bite.  Only thing I was catching was Kokanee's. They seemed hungry as they were hitting stuff I normally use for Mackinaw here in Idaho.  I was trolling with leaded line, dodgers and various attachments, but no luck on the Mack's.  I know a few people on here have fished up there, anyone have any luck on the Mackinaw's, or are they far and few between up there.  The kids did catch one Tiger trout from the shore, they are beautiful fish.  Next time I will not leave my fly gear at home, there were fish rising everywhere!

Following, we hope to get up there a couple times in the next month! Have never fished it but looking forward to trying it out. The boy will be excited to toss a few flies, but the focus for us will be tiger trout. Looking forward to any tips offered up!

Beautiful picture too!
