Busydad is right, water is beyond dirty and sticks and logs all over the place. I didn't notice anyone fishing today when I drove down there...

The Harbor is a big chocolate mess with leaves and sticks everywhere. Going to be awhile before it cleans up. Sorry

I plan on being in town over the weekend, any info you can share on fishing in the harbor? Anything happening by power plant? Will all this rain make it better, or worse?

How's the coho and trout action I was there two weeks ago and not much was happening. Is it any better now, and have they started spawning? I live an hour away so any info would be very helpful!

FISHING REPORT
10/13/15 1:04 AM CST
Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 61° - 65° F Water Temp: 56° - 60° F
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 !

Conditions: Cloudy
Fished the power discharge Monday morning, from the power plant side, from 7-930 am. Watched anglers in corner next to outflow catch about 6 small browns 3-6 lbs, with spawn sacks and skein, on 3 way rigs . I noticed that to the right of the heavy surge of water coming out from outflow, were dozens of alewives jumping for their lives from fish chasing them at surface and just below ! I kept trying different spoons, and body baits, until I found the magic weapon, a silver mirror finish rattletrap, with no lip that imitated the alewives on and below the surface ! Wham ! I got into a 14 lb king with a bass rod, and fought it for a good 20 minutes, till I could finally steer it to the net ! While I was fighting the king, 2 other kings came along side my fish, as to say were sorry , can we help you ? if I didn't have to check out at hotel, I would have stayed for another battle, as kings were chasing alewives all over the place . No doubt the extended cloud cover till 930 am , played an important role in my late morning success !

FYI I can't believe that Harry's Diner is out of business after 89 years,as Saturday was the last day open Crying Hopefully the condo going in there will have a new diner at street level Tounge Out

Been there on and off the past week and slow is an understatement. Most people are coming up empty handed with not even a hit for a full day of fishing. You know it's bad when oit of the 60+ guys there you only see maybe 5 fish caught in the mornings during the good bite time. Too many people too few fish this year. Most bites have been on spawn lately though from what ive seen. I've been seeing better action down by Racine lately because they are at least getting some cohos too!

My best advice to you trollers in the harbor and out in front is to use flatfish magnum size, either pearl, green, or silver , behind yellow birds in close, as to not interfere with other trollers ! Rattletraps during low light conditions, are also excellent as long as not divers .

For the shore fisherman I like 3/4 ounce Krocks in green and silver color, and the weight is important to get that bait down to the bottom quickly where the fish are cruising in that slightly cooler bottom of the water column . With spawn sacks, and skein use 3-way swivel rig off bottom ,and keep bell sinker line length at about 18 inches , and use lighter test line on sinker only ,incase you get snagged, as its better to lose the sinker, than the whole rig.

Good Luck
