Beautiful fish! Congrats!
That's a Chinook. If nothing else, the DNR is not clipping adipose on Coho .......
Alrighty - Looks like a Coho not a Chinook by the white mouth....
The anal fin has a long leading edge, usually with a white tip
Record is 33 LBS!!...You were close!
Looks like a stocked fish also..>Adipose is clipped..
Average Weight: 5 to 12 lbs (2.3 to 5.4 kg), Record 33 lbs
Anybody heard anything inside of the walls yet? Never seemed like there was consistent enough west wind this year to bring any silverfish in or around the gaps. Thinking with the wind this weekend I might try trolling in and around the gaps. Total waste of time? Anybody see anybody jigging at all?
Been awhile since last post, cause frankly not much to post about. We are seeing the direct effect of chinook salmon stocking cuts the last 3 years so traditional areas at this time of year aren't producing as well. Really far offshore seems to be some of the answer butbya better have the right Day and the right boat to do it. We did have action the other day in 100-150' but it's a slow poke. The wind for the next couple days will affect the bite we just need to hope it's for the positive. In a few weeks we will see what we have for a return! Lake trout have been here and there, but not consistent. My best advice is to fish a flasher fly spread and cross your fingers. Our best Combo has been white flasher with hammerflies lbb frog. Best spoon has been moonshine wonderbread. We had cold temps but after tomorrow's wind I'm expecting different. Might have to fish the bottom in 150'. Good luck and see you on the water.
Fished today from 11:30 to 2:00. Went 1-1 with one tank steelhead. Fished 70-150FOW with 150 being the key again.
Same Spread as last night but changed the downrigger to a Mag Frog Spoon and picked up the steelie.
Some guys were in tight searching for staging kings. The 4 year olds should show up soon but for now there is a few 2 and 3 years olds hanging around.
