Fishing Report: Uncha contains Lake Char to 20+ lbs., and Rainbows to 2-1/2 lbs. Flies or small lures and spinning gear work well for the bows, while trolling deep with spoons and plugs is the method that will likely catch the large Lake Char. Uncha is considered a consistent producer throughout the open water season.
