2nd day Banks lake chain winter trout bank fishing

this day took 4 hours to limit. This area is great during the winter. A boat would be great to hit them Kokanee.

What do you mean by "Banks Lake chain". I live at Banks Lake and by looking at the back ground in your video it does not appear to be Banks Lake. It seems your videos show a lot of just looking down at the beach rather than showing your surroundings. I'm not trying to criticize by any means, just looking for a little clarification. They are nice limits of fish.

As in not giving my spot away. All the way from Roosevelt down through Banks on to Potholes Reservoir. Are all in the chain. It is the Columbia basin irrigation project.

The bodies of water from Lake Roosevelt to Potholes have different names and some have different regulations. It's not proper to lump them all into one group. Nobody expects you to share your "spot", but if you were fishing Lake Roosevelt then the fish pictured in your video are illegal, some of the other lakes not so much. The Reports section seems to be more about bragging, but the Forum section seems to be more about sharing information.

Were it not for the pumping station there would be no connection to Banks, in fact, Banks would not exist. I think it quite a stretch to call it the "Banks chain" when the source water is pumped UPHILL from Roosevelt. No dispute on the irrigation project but your claim of it being the "Banks chain" is very misleading.
