Lake Koocanusa Fishing Report from Mo Fisch Charters
By Matt Schauer

Posted: November 18, 2012

Lake Koocanusa has been fishing okay. The two largest rainbows have been at 9 lbs. We have lost a couple that I think were bigger in the 10-12 lb. range.

Streamer flies have been picking up most of the fish. We have been averaging 6 to 10 fish per day.

The darker colors like purple, black, brown have been working the best. We caught a few fish on the dark colored Lyman plugs. Also a few fish on the rainbow patterned Rapalas.

I really feel that the bigger fish will be showing up anytime now. The surface water temperature has been 50.0 degrees and dropping about ½ a degree per day. Also catching and releasing 4 to 5 bull trout a day. Remember we cannot keep any bull trout this year.
