Fished 10/11 Sunday evening 5pm to 7pm, and Monday morning 10/12 from 635am till 930 am. Saw only 1 fish caught, a slightly brown 9lb King Salmon on a spawn sack at the power plant discharge into harbor about 945 am Monday 10/12 . There was heavy cloud cover, and small rain droplets from time to time . Water was quite stained and muddy looking , and lures were not cold to the touch ! Not many people fishing, and saw no fish in the creek ! Condtions were a lot better last weekend, and fish and alewives were jumping in the harbor last week also. Current of water pumping at discharge, seemed lower than last week, maybe due to Columbus Day holiday, with many people off work, and less need of electricity ?
Looks like mud was starting to blow out of harbor into lake, but heavy winds from the west and northwest may help with the job this morning and afternoon !Hopefully will lower temp in harbor water also, to bring fish and alewives back in ?
FYI Both Fish cleaning stations are now closed for the season , so be prepared to clean your own fish. Talked to Ewig store mgr. said they could clean fish if you wanted to leave it for smoking ? Not sure of cost for this service.
Conditions may improve next couple of days , as I heard Coho's are knocking at entrance to harbor , but to muddy, and warm right now !
