THE FLY FISHING CHRONICLES OF YNP (part 25)
In this selection I will continue with the information on fishing streamers as related to Lewis Lake and the Lewis Channel.
In a previous article there was information on brown trout, rainbow trout and cutthroat trout of neither of the last two are found in the waters we are currently discussing however the lake does contain brook trout and lake trout therefore I will share the information on their spawning cycles.
Interesting that Lewis/Shoshone lake trout, which originally came from Lake Michigan, have been used to help re-stock that Great Lake, where the laker population was severely depleted by over-fishing and sea-lamprey predation. Ironically, only a few miles away, lakers are considered a scourge in Yellowstone Lake, where they, along with whirling disease, have had an enormous impact on the Yellowstone cutthroat population; attempts to exterminate them in Yellowstone Lake have met with limited results, at best.
