Winter fishing for trophy trout on the Arrow Lakes.Jan. 22-23 Blue Knuckle Fishing Derby - Nakusp, BC
Mid-winter is the perfect time to catch trophy Rainbow Trout in the Kootenays, and there are few better places than the Arrow Lakes. In the past, it's taken up to 19 pounds just to take third place in this derby, and with 100% payback, you may just catch the fish of a lifetime and make some money in the process. A $20 entry fee and a day of trolling bucktails around this beautiful lake is all it takes.
For more info on the derby, or to book your spot, call 250-265-0005. The event is being held by Hook it Up Tackle, check them out on Facebook at Hook it Up Tackle
