May is Prime Fishing Time in Pemberton
Early May is one of the best times of the year to snag a trout in one of Pemberton's local lakes. Thanks to the recent Salmon run the trout have followed their friends upstream to munch on their yummy Salmon fry (young Salmon). This in turn leads to amazing fishing in Pemberton's local lakes including; Anderson Lake, Ivey Lake, Mosquito Lake & Birkenhead Lake.
The recent warm weather has also resulted in a Flying Black Ant Hatch on Ivey Lake. This hatch only stays around for about 2 weeks so it's imperative to hit while the hatch is going on. This hatch is a fly fisherman's dream and is the perfect time to get your rod out for the first time. All you have to do is look for Rainbow Trout feeding on the surface on the Flying Black Ant Hatch. Then toss your Flying Black Ant Pattern 6' in front of the last surface and you're sure to have a fish on within minutes.
Other great fishing spots include Anderson Lake and Birkenhead Lakes river entrances. The rivers have really begun to swell bringing with them lots of food for the fishies. You can choose to post up on the shore and cast out towards the current or grab a boat and hit the areas adjacent to the river flow. Either way there is some great fishing to be had around both lakes.
