Gerrard rainbow trout are resident in Lower Arrow Lake where fishing
is the best in the fall months. Polar bears and bucktail flies trolled
at three mph or more are used with much success. When the water
is calmer use Apex or Lyman plugs.
the summer when the water of Lower Arrow Lake is warmer use a flasher
and hootchie and a dodger with a fly and leader at a depth of 30
m (98 ft) to 70 m (230 ft).
the winter use Bill Normans or Pradco Water Dogs at a slow troll
for best results. For bull trout in the winter and spring use chrome
J Plugs, Mac's Squids trolled near the surface or jig with bucktail
