Went 2 for 2 Wednesday night, 5 and 16lb king out front the water tower in 85 ft. Yesterday fished 3am-10am going 0 for 1 with a screamer that hit 4 color at daybreak. Fished last night 4-930 going 3 for 3 with 2 shakers and and 20lbs king coming on 4 color. So far this morning 0 for 1 lost a fish on mag moonshine dipsey 100 LOC. Marking lots no biters yesterday and today. Disappointing to say the least.

Here's a report from yesterday afternoon.

Left TR about 3 PM. Set up in 60 FOW, and trolled out to 120FOW. 75 feet down on a rigger with a green and blue ProKing, we pulled our foirst fish. (a 10# Carp)

We moved in to 80-90 FOW and picked up two Coho 55-60 feet down on green, and blue prokings.

50 feet down, the Depth Raider was displaying 58-65* water.

As we trolled in, we were recording 53* water about 25 feet down in 50 FOW in front of the TR North water tower.

I would say no there is no such rule of thumb

A sustained wind for days will build waves, but a wind that switches will cause the lake to be confused.  in general on our side of the lake, a NE wind on the tail of a low causes the biggest waves. check webcams in the area along with the noaa animations and near shore forecasts

I know this won't be exact, but any good 'rule' of the lake conditions based on the forecast?  Ex:  A NW wind 5-10 mph will make 1-2' waves, but a South wind 5-10 mph will make 3-5' waves?

I'm about 2 hours away and trying to make sure that I can safely get out when I get there.


Thanks!

Some real nice fish finding the cooler the last week. Flasher flies down deep and lead core rods pulling spoons ding most of the work. It always great seeing kids reel in big fish. It's even good to see the big kids get in on the action too. Don't wait to give it a shot. Good luck to all those fishing in the Two Rivers derby starting tomorrow.

Thanks for the reports.  Sadly, I've not been out in a month so nothing to report.  Will be getting after it from home base at Seagull starting Thursday.

Good luck to all.

Warm water has moved in and the winds now make it a new fishing day again. We pulled a 28 lb lake trout on the Willie Bee not to long ago and had good salmon action, but the warm water will change everything as the Two Rivers Derby comes this weekend. Still throwing everything out there from top to bottom. seems the kings have been suspended in 60-80 foot level from 90-120 feet of water. Keep a eye on the water temp website, you find cold water you find fish. There are no nets out off of TR at this time. Good Luck in the Derby.

Good report Tangled.  Wish more people would give straight-forward info that just gives you the honest scoop.  Also, glad the baitfish are doing OK so that the DNR will ease up on all the gloom and doom about the lake.
