This past fall, while on a fishing trip up at Red Lake, which is located about 50km North of Kamloops, Exploring Kamloops managed to snap some shots of the lake as fall sets in. The water was like glass, and the colors were well, gorgeous! If you have never been to Red Lake, you need to know 3 things.
On this particular trip, we didn’t end up catching any fish. The weather has just turned colder and going up, we knew there had just been a hatch of the fish’s natural food the week before so our bait did little to tempt the already full fish. However, the lake offered a beautiful backdrop to a relaxing day on the water.
If any of you are thinking about going to Red Lake, there is a copy of a depth map of the lake offered free by The Angler’s Atlas.The lake has 2 very shallow areas where it’s easy to snag your tackle that are best to avoid if you are trolling, as well as a handful of deep trenches that are awesome to fish on those hot summer days.
We definitely loved Red Lake this past summer, and are looking forward to fishing it into the fall and winter. Our freezer stash of Rainbows and Brookies we’ve caught up there is a great way to help us live local and makes for an amazing way to enjoy the Kamloops Area in any season.
