Kayak Fishing Sakinaw Lake for Cutthroat Trout

A wonderful place to spent a day on the water fishing is Sakinaw Lake located on the Sunshine Coast. This long beautiful lake is awesome to fish by kayak because the distance across is not great and there of plenty of bays and inlets to explore . These areas provide great coverage for foraging fish and the perfect place for cutthroat to ambush an unsuspecting lure. Paddle a short distance off shore and cast a lure or fly among the fallen trees and submerged stumps. As you retrieve your hook try and watch for any movement in the water because in many instances the fish may follow the bait right to the side of the boat. In more than one instance a trout was caught as we were drawing our hooks out of the water. A silvery flash at your lure is a dead give away that the fish is hungry and waiting for you to get your hook back into the water. Send another cast into the same area and if necessary slow your retrieved and jig the hook to entice a hit. These fish like to travel in numbers so where you find one there is usually more.
