Fish outside the north gap breakwall for a couple hours Thursday evening.  Pretty crowded in the harbor and gap.  Cold water is in down 15-20'.   3-3 on kings.  Mag green glow blue knight on wire dipsy 45loc 3 setting took 2 and one on #9 flicker minnow green glow green knight paint scheme on a torpedo down 20'.  The last king came in with a bonus coho rig wrapped around the dipsy somehow.   Can't quite figure out how it happened, but I am guessing that the fish charged the boat and the diver dragged the bottom which dredged it up.  Oh well, the lake taketh and the lake giveth.

Fishing for staging kings was definitely tougher this morning than it had been the last couple days. Every bite this morning was on a silver bullet jplug. No bites on cranks or spoons. 

It looked like the jiggers and skein soakers were doing well.

fished Sunday evening for 2 hrs.  Went out to 70fow looking for silver and found zippo out to 85fow.  Temp break at 35' down.  Moved in for last 45 min outside the north gap.  Cold water moved in big time and so did the fish.  1 nice brown on a dipsy and black ice spoon.  1 male king (small 8lbs) on dipsy and mag blue knight.  1 female king (16 lbs) on green glow flicker minnow that took me well into the darkness to land.

Harbor fishing is what it is. Great one day then bad the next. Yesterday was 14 for 25, today so far just 3. Plugs doing the work now with some crank bait bites thrown in. These fish have been here for a while now so the brighter the color the better especially greens and fire tiger patterns. The bite won't last much longer as the next good rain should suck them into the rivers and marinas. Good luck and see you on the water!

Targeted staging kings this morning and they were ready to play. Lost a bunch, but were able to land a nice cooler full. Started out with a mix of spoons, cranks and jplugs. The fish clearly preferred the jplugs for us with silver or purple being the best colors.

Fishjng is pretty good! Seems that a batch of mature coho showed up over the last week. Warm water has not brought enough browns into shallow water which is what we would normally be targeting along with the few mature kings in the harbor. Water is too warm. Today we fished in 100-126 but down deeper. Strictly flasher fly bite. Went 7/14 and every bite was flasher fly. Pretty sure the lake trout would have bit too, but we concentrated on silver fish today. Dipsys out 200' and riggers from 80 to 110' down. Coppers never got touched. Best combo was white flasher and superfrog fly! Good luck and see you on the water!
