Win Cash & Gift Prizes
The Kootenay Lake Angler Incentive Events inspire anglers to get out on the water and enjoy the outdoors while fishing. Anglers are encouraged to enter our summer events and harvest Rainbow and Bull Trout in the main body of Kootenay Lake for a chance to win amazing prizes.
“This program [the original angler incentive program] reduced rainbow trout and bull trout abundance faster than any other recovery action implemented to date. In the absence of these predators, kokanee will likely have a better opportunity to survive to maturity and reproduce. We anticipate this last year has made significant steps towards the goal of recovering kokanee and the Kootenay Lake trophy trout fishery.”

Kootenay Lake Angler Incentive Event Goal
The goal is to increase the number of Rainbow and Bull Trout caught in Kootenay Lake. The trout are suppressing the survival of the Kokanee, the primary food source of these predators. Encouraging anglers to catch and retain Kootenay Lake trout will give the young Kokanee a chance to mature.
