The colder it gets(water temp) the more these fish will congregate in warm water locations such as discharegs and structure. Best is yet to come as far as near shore targeting of these fish. Smile

Went out this morning to the Oak Creek powerplant discharge and managed 4 fish. I'm not too familiar with the species, but very familiar with the rough water! The wind was blowing hard enough northwest to hold my spot without using the trolling motor much. It was really rough in a 16' Alumacraft.

Had a great AM on the water yesterday with a good friend on his boat. Weather could not have been any more perfect. We fished primarily shallow under 60ft. Primary goal - browns for smoking - achieved. Everything got hit - DR, SD and all lead (3,5,6). 5 lead most active maybe. DR and SD spoons back 50-125ft bacl. Best time -8-10am. Slowed down after 10. All spoons - gold primarily & NBK family. Temp. from surface down 45ft. was a constant 50. Lots of smaller browns mixed in but filled the cooler quite nicely with size also. All browns and one decent laker. Ended up around 17 for 22 or something like that. No pigs but plenty of decent fish. Was toying with putting my own boat away for the winter but not any more. Still plenty of good days to be had on the water - i hope. Be well. It's such a blessing to get out and enjoy such a wonderful resource.

Another beautiful day on the lake last Saturday. The west winds and the chop kept us in close, but we had a great time. I believe we boated 6 or 7 fish - in beautiful lake and weather conditions.

BTW - The only thing worse than catching lake trout, is catching deformed lake trout (see pic)

Focused our attention on the bottom half of the water column - inside of 60fow. Not many kings around, but like I said - had to play within the wave conditions - would have rather fished 200+

Everything took hits. Rigger down 45 with NBK took a brown, 3 color blue knight took a fish, diver back 65 with a chartreuse red eye took a small king, dirty white boy took fish on a 7 color, and a 5 color. Gimpy, the lake trout came on a rigger down 35 with a moonshine blueberry muffing.

Divers were pretty silent, as they usually are in tight - mostly boards and riggers doing the work.

Went out for possibly our last trip of the year this afternoon. Seas were nice when we got out. Started in 50 FOW trolled out to 100 FOW turned it back west and had a nicer sized Bow on a 6 color with a spoon and after a number of jumps he got off. Then had almost a double on Browns in 80 FOW first coming on a rigger with a spoon, second coming off a slide diver spoon also. Then we had a small fish that got away on 5 color. Went dry for a bit. Next one to go was 7 color nice laker. Had another small Brown on rigger and discovered we were dragging a shaker Coho when we called it back into 50 FOW and it was getting bumpy....

Great to get out

Made it out today to fish one of my favorite times of the year, with two of my favorite dudes. Fished a mixed spoon and FF program from 60-150 with most action outside of 100. Waves this morning were manageable. Spoons were the ticket today, but with a numb depth raider, that's the go to presentation. Blueberry muffin 170 back pulled a nice immature king. And a turd brown. 5 color dirty white boy pulled a slightly larger turd. Then pulled our biggest steelhead of the year in 150 on a rigger down 55 with a NBK. Most of our action was in the top 50ish feet of the water. Although didn't make much of a laker effort today.

Here's to hoping the weather holds for is this year. Some really fun fishing in some great weather today. Go pack

Fished this afternoon riding the waves from the green can to the filter 60-40fow. Picked up 3 browns on riggers all my other gear was quiet. Wind was a 'cookin' as expected. However, with the sun poking out it was fairly warm.

Typically they are suppose to open the gates nov. 15 but last year it was a week late because they didn't call the locksmith in time.

Me and my son and dad made it out today. Stayed inside the breakwall and a few loops in the river lots of marks but no takers . Mostly just wanted to be on the lake and try out our new bow tent that me and my son made . It worked great he didn't even have his gloves or hat on all day . I bought a little 12 volt heater and he was set .

Made one last trip of the year. Stayed inside 60' trolling north. 3 for 3 one brown on a coho rig on dipsey set 36'. Second brown on a white FF combo and a laker on a 6 color with NBK spoon. Hoping next year brings better fishing!
