    I'm soon heading to Quesnel Lake for a week and would appreciate any help you could provide about how to fish the lake. I'll have my 20 foot boat and riggers. I assume I can troll. Gear? I'm a complete rookie at lake fishing. What do I use for lures and how do I fish them? Thanks

    personally the Apex 4.5 caught both Lakers and rainbows. Green, blue, glow white, black n pearl, seem good. Lakers like a dodger and spoon.
    It is such a big lake, depends where you stay, then find some fish close by.
    Standard rig for rainbows would be a big gang troll and a Tee spoon about 2-4' behind.
    3" Tomic plugs and 3.0 Apex are popular.

    Where are you staying ? We use 4.5'' Apex's for Lakers. Silver/black , silver/blue,watermelon, firetiger lots of colors work there.
    Water was super high but heard its dropping.
    Downrigger 60-200' .
