I am planning my trip to the Waterfound/Fon Du Lac rivers this summer. What lures work well for the walleye & pike in Saskatchewan? I also will be fly fishing for the grayling. Any advice on flies for them would be appreciated too. Thanks, Larry

Hey Larry,

Well, I'm sure you'll get tons of advice on this one, but, there's two lures in N. Sask. that are sure to be in every angler's box.

#1- yellow mr. twister style jig with some sort of flourescent colour jig head.

#2- Len Thopmson number 5, red with white stripe.

I like the Berkley power bait jigs that come in those ziplock style packages. My favorite are the chartreuse ones that are suppose to look like a perch, and are kind of translucent. Tandem that with yellow or green flourescent jig heads, and you'll have something that both walleye and pike will bite on. I don't find that the jig heads with the rattles inside, or the fancy fins work very well at all. Just the plain old jig with a bit of stink. You'll have to ask someone else about grayling, but I hear people using their fly rods for those. Maybe trout spinners on a spin cast rod, but I've never caught a grayling in my life.

cheers, robpw

You get the idea

The Waterfound is deadly; you'll get into some "grayling on every cast" pools. Have fun!

Here is a link to what the fly in lodge up there recomends for grayling.

I used a fly rod and had good fun, a buddy of mine used an old spin-cast reel with a fly tied below a bobber and did as good as I did! (fishing translation for "doing as good as I did" means that he did better!)

Be sure to avoid campsites that fishing outfitters have used as shore-lunch stops. Bears often frequent these sites for the lard and fish remains.

Larry,

When are you headed up? How long will you paddle? Looks like my husband and I will be up there too.

Does anyone want to guess at the type of fish this is? It's about 17" 2-3 Lbs, thought is was a bass but had no markings like one. Golden/green in color, fought like @#$%.

Thanks!

'tis a noble smallmouth bass. Final answer. Looks like a pretty nice size too.

Cheers,

Tom

That was my guess too but here in Wisconsin their markings are much different and color too!

Thanks!

Boneli
