It will be a gong show daily until the ice comes off Jacko! Two years ago, April 1st, 15 trucks which doesn't come close to Jacko's April record of 65 trucks!

Does Jacko really get that pounded ??? I was thinking of trying that lake out this year for the first time but i think i might stay away if its going to be like that. I am planning to head up to Morgan next weekend perhaps, trying to get a group of us together to cut gas costs :)

Jacko

I think the pressure will die down on Jacko now that lakes are open as soon as the ice is gone. It used to get pounded in April because nothing else was open. Despite the pressure you can't pass up on Jacko as it is easy access and is an awesome chironomid lake with beautiful structure and some large 'bows!

I agree totally with John. Jacko gets some early pressure, but there are so many lakes in the area, once they are all open, Jacko is just another one of many. It is close to Kamloops (20 minutes) so it draws a good number of guys in the evening (an after-work destination) but from 9 to 5, you can often find only 2 or 3 other anglers on the lake. The fishing can be moody at times, but the possibility of a 5 lb+ fish is there on every cast. It is one of the few lake I will fish scud patterns (I just don't have confidence in them, or my abilities with them) 'cause the lake is packed with them, and they are a preferred food item, i have found. Don't pass Jacko up if you have a chance to fish it.

Lakes Open When Ice I Gone?

Hey wait a min., when did the rules change? It has always been specified dates for lakes, in the past.

Dude where you bin? Under a rock? When Harmonization and Simplicity was the new program uttered by the "powers that be" things changed. Nothing is the same any more. Now there are lakes you can icefish and lakes you can't! Simple eh? Morgan and Six Mile used to have an April 1st opening but no more, you just can't icefish them..........but that doesn't stop those ******* locals in Savona! All those trophy lakes that used to have a May 1st opening are now fishable once the ice is gone.

Ruger - you only have 3 on your "need to fish" list LOL I think i have like frigging 30 !!! looks like i will be trying new lakes and finding favourites over the next few years. I cant wait until my son is older so i can share these experiences with him and of course take him to lakes where you get large amounts of fish to get him interested :)

Okay Jacko is back on the list ............. not that it ever got taken off LOL

with Morgan & 6mile iced off, how far behind is Jacko normally ?? couple weeks

Ice off=fish on--sweet. I knew we moved up to the interior for a reason.

yeah, i've only got 3 new lakes on my list this year. i've got about a dozen or so other ones that i've fished once or twice in the past that i'd like to get back to though. i really have no idea how much fishing i'm going to get in this year. it all depends on how school ends for me and whether i pick up work locally or move out of the valley like ive been hoping of doing.
