Ice Fishing Nita Lake Whistler, BC, Canada
Ice Fishing Nita Lake Whistler, BC Canada
Ice Fishing Nita Lake Whistler, BC, Canada can be extremely fun. There are thousands of eager Rainbow trout in this lake just waiting for your hook to enter the lake. Although your not likely to catch any Rainbow Trout larger than 12″-14″, the lake will still keep you interested with its productivity. There is a Beautiful lodge located on the South end of the lake called Nita Lake Lodge. This would be a very convenient place to stay after a day of Ice fishing, you could sit back in one of there Hot tubs and soak your tired arms while taking in the views of the snow covered mountains in Whistler.
While Ice Fishing Nita Lake Whistler, BC, Canada try fishing near the inflowing creek located on the North end of the lake.
Be careful not to get to close to the creek because the flowing water will create thin ice. A best bet would be to look for an area that has been already ice fished back from the creek and judge that as a safe distance from the creek. Never venture close to open water! A safer area is down at the dock in front of Nita lake lodge there is approximately 10″ of ice here as of Jan 22, 2013. There is a nice weed bed and the Trout venture into the weeds in search of feed. Use bait while ice fishing Whistler on Nita Lake. My favorite bait to use is Worms but Powerbait and Shrimp work equally good. Some people like to sit their bait motionless near the bottom but I have had better success using a jig head or a Zapper tipped with bait. If you jig your bait you will attract more fish, it becomes a visual thing as well as spreading scent at the same time.
