Splake and Rainbows

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some information on Splake and Rainbows. I will be doing some fishing while grouse hunting this fall sept- oct. Does anyone have suggestions on lures and location for either of these fish. Can they be caught from shore. I have never fished for either before. It will be in a small lake that I will be fishing.

If you would care to let me join you fishing there anytime this summer i can figure out what will work on them with what kind of lake it is. And show ya how. my email is [email protected] if you are interested. It would be nice to fish somewhere else besides the crosby mine pits.

mnwild14, the rainbows should be close to shore. As the season for trout lakes wines down the rainbows will be moving in close to shore. Nightcrawlers under a bobber or jig and twister will do the trick. Twister colors that work for me are white, brown, black, and purple. Jigs should be no bigger then 1/8 with 1/16 working the best for rainbows.
Splake are most commonly found at the bottom, in deeps of 20 feet or more. Use split shoots and a plain hook with a inflated nightcrawler just off the bottom.

Good Luck.

mnwild14~we have always had good luck fishing rainbow trout using Berkley Powerbait, with the majority of the time chartreuse being the most productive color, but also good luck on the hot pink and white. Benjamin Lake is producing well this time of year and it is stocked almost every year with rainbow.

Most of the above info is dead on. Looking for a cool trip? Tofte lake holds beautiful splake, chunky rainbows, and nice pockets of ruffs. Camp right on the lake. Hunting trails and other lakes within minutes.
(Gawd, I should be working for the Chamber up here. I sound like a commercial)
