I will share this with you cause it was so cool to see this. I was by the condos in the harbor and seen a couple of big browns playing around so I pulled out my pearl tube jig for the heck of it and teased them a bit and bam me and my buddy watched it hit it! Such a beautiful fish just had to CPR it!

Squish you are correct my fishing partner who is a fisheries biologist for the state has informed me that the run will be later this fall due to temps he states that dye to cold water affecting the bait fish spawn it effected the growth and maturing of the salmon. There were less reproducing bait fish this year. The cold water also slowed down the rate at which the spawning class of fish developed there eggs taking longer for then to mature, thus creating a later run. It us simple science that i have observed by looking at the skein in fish caught on charters this fall the eggs are still very tightly bound in the membrane. Also the dnr is expecting a larger run this year due to the relatively slow fishing this summer.

The cold water temps are affecting this year's run whether you would like to admit it or not. Your years of fishing should of helped you understand that not every year is the same... As far as being out voted opinions vary. Who are you and do you fish for a living?? No, most likely not. Well I do and so some of the other professionals I know and fish with feel the way, some being charter captain's and DNR. Do I care what you think, no, but I will listen because I'm sure you have some valid points. Don't be mad because you have been corrected. Seems people would rather argue than learn something..

Uneducated? Fishing fall kings for 23yrs I'm far from uneducated. During the spring and summer yes water temp means everything but when they are staging they'll be there regardless you just have to figure out what they want.

I lived on the harbor for 10 years and fished more days than not. My observation has been that kings pile in front of the harbor the last week in August - whether the water temp is 48 or 78 - without fail. I slammed fish in front of the harbor between the jet skiers in 78* water. Usually the only boat there that early. Green #5 JPlugs never failed. They stay there for 2-3 weeks and then move into the harbor. By the end of September its difficult to find a 4 yo outside the harbor as they are in the harbor and up the river. Then in the trunks and headed to IL. They do bite better when the water is cold but the temp does not affect the migration whatsoever. Again, 10 years experience fishing most days. Lips Sealed

Disregard the uneducated below me. Water temps are the main reason fishing is what it is this year.. The reason you caught a king early is because of the cold water, the king normally would be out deeper that time of year due to the warm water up close normally. Anything else would 've just be your opinion... Also, some kings live 5 years in fresh water and up to 8 years in the ocean.. Just some interesting facts!

This time of year water temps play a very little role in if the salmon are going to run or not. Everyone is saying the run is late but this year is the earliest I've caught a Chinook in the rivers in ten years. First fish I got was a 17.9lb male the Friday before labor day. No kidding your catching kings off shore still. This is just the very begining of the run. For some dumb reason everyone thinks all the chinooks run at once but its a cycle, we get rain rivers go up and a new batch of fish push in.

Tragically, we also lost bassinlarry's heroic comments about the horrors of "zipping and dipping." Why throw a perfectly good salmon carcass back into the lake when it's way more fun to watch it spin around in the grinder?

WOW! Just noticed my comments got deleted! Someone has thin skin Crying Since my fishing hole was taken today had to find a new spot. went 2-2 on skein and my buddy did the same and it was his first time ever fishing with skein. So whoever reported me or cried you only have yourself to blame. Like I said this is the reason why I will not give out info anymore tight lines to all.

No offense skipy, but I disagree. Water temp is playing a huge role in this years fishing and also the Salmon run... This is one of the coldest years on record watertemp wise. All the rain does is bring the fish up the river once they are already in the harbor or in the vicinity of the mouth of the river. I am still catching 4 year olds nowhere near the river mouth.. The DNR also feels this is true.

Been fishing here for40+ years. The run usually will peak near Oct.1,,,,,our water temps.Will not be a big influence. Rain can be a big influence...get the rivers flowing so they will find home.a few fish may be late
