Fifth hit at 10:30 on 8 color Mag Atomic Melon in 250 fow, 6 lb steelhead.
Pulled lines at 11:30 AM. Ended up 5 for 5 with one drive by on the slide diver. Surface temp was between 67-70 degrees. Appeared to be a temp break about 70 foot down.
Our best action was in 220-240 fow. Out deeper and in shallower we marked far fewer fish. Seems as though the stocked kings are working their way back over and are starting to stage near their home waters. The one we got was just getting slightly bronze but the meat quality was still good.
At the cleaning station most guys I talked to had 2-7 fish. The guys with 7 (5 of which were lakers) said they were out deep in about 450 fow.
Fishing seems to be picking up a bit, I'm looking to get back out Wednesday afternoon. Hoping to break the 30lb mark on a king yet this year.
