    Osoyoos bass fishing advice

    Hi Yall,

    My Boss is coming out from Ontario next week and he wants to go Bass fishing in Osoyoos for large mouth. Not small mouth, just large mouth. Any one fishing large mouth these days down there and any reports on how the fishing is? Hot dog days of summer so what should I expect on Osoyoos Lake for a bite? We are going to be fishing on Tuesday night/Wednesday. I was hoping to rent a boat down there but no one rents fishing boats so it looks like I will have to drag my boat down from Kamloops.

    Any other lakes that have good large mouth close by? I know Vaseux does but the rowing thing is out of the question.

    Anyone have a buddy down there that rents fishing boats? Thanks for any help.

    Doesn't he have all sorts of bass fishing out there? Why not take him trout fishing?

    Ya, I tried. I live on the T and have all kinds of Springs going by my front door but hes got bass on the brain. Guys back east are addicted to bass like we are to trout. Plus, trout fishing is not great this time of year. Need a few weeks for the water to cool down.

    Skaha Lake might be worth a try.

    We've got Bass in Shannon Lake but it's not exactly "going out fishing"

    First light before the other boats make wakes every where i just went out in a kayak and just used a dew worm no weight no paddling and sat at the weed edge... one after another no problem.

    rent a ski boat and fish from it. I drove down from kamloops in a car and just borrowed a kayak

    Thanks for the offer Jan, that's really nice of you. We decided to try Vaseux with the rowboat. If I get a 9 lb bucket mouth for the boss maybe I'll get a raise. Thanks for the tips guys!

    I tried my hand at bass in Vaseux many years ago. Canoe. Used a floating lure in weed beds that mimicked a frog. Had one hit & it was explosive! So explosive he got away! I think I understand the desire to hook into these by our eastern bros. I prefer trout on light fly gear though. There's a nice little alpine lake up in the Monashees that produces nice brookies & the odd rainbow.
