Hey Just Country, my mom and dad fished Amistad from the late 70's through 2005. We used mainly one guide for the first years. Became real close friends with him. Then dad got so good at reading the lake and knowing where we rarely ever used the guide but always kept in touch to let him know where we were finding fish. Was a lot of fun in the 70's thru the 90's, then trouble on the other side kept us on the American side only. Dad was a catch and release guy the last 25 years he fished, great lake!!morning, I join u fishing. I go to lake Amistad once a month.
here in TX. fishing is one of my loves. catch and release.
shooting, hunting hogs and coyotes in the same breath.
another old guy.

The Rainbow was in 42fow and I was using a Fly rod with deep sink 7 on with 12ft of lead core then 12ft of fluorocarbon with a swivel 4ft from end then a Black Wooly Bugger trolling with a 55# Mini Kota at 50% and I was too backing .. also ripping the fly the lake is in Jasper National Park valley but is one of those no tellum lakes .. the Brook Trout was in 20fow and trolling too with full sink 7 n Black Wooly Bugger .. the local guides know where this lake is . here is a 6#6oz male that was caught last weekend by a Fly Fisherman n posted it on Alberta Outdoorsmen forumNice fish, and a nice way for a couple of old friends to spend a day. Better yet a week or even more.
How deep did you find those, and were you trolling?
