Fantastic day on the water with good friends Wednesday 9/23.  Not much fish catching, but will share what we found.

Left the harbor just after sunrise, took a long boat ride to 500.  Once the sun was up, surface temps were pretty much 60 to 61 everywhere we fished.  Temp probe had the thermocline at about 50 to 60' down.  Was hoping to find more cold water higher up, but was not to be.  We worked a 2 mile area that has produced well in the past, not many fish were there.  We boated a 6 pound rainbow on an agent orange spoon, 5 color, and had to keep a 2 pound king that we unfortunately were dragging on a spoon 90' deep rigger.  After working for close to 3 hours, determined it was not going to happen, pulled lines, ran "shallower" to 350.  

Worked 350 for about an hour.  That was a dead sea, at least where we were.  Thermocline was deeper, 60 degree water down almost to 40'.  After an hour and the revelation it was not going to happen, pulled and ran in to 230.

Worked 230 to about 260 for a couple of hours.  One nice rainbow (~ 9 pounds) on 50' rigger, green dragon slayer / green krinkle fly.  One 9" king released on the 90' deep spoon rigger.  No other hits.  The cooler water was a little bit higher up than what we found in 350, but still had to go 60' down to get near 50 degrees.

Pulled the final line around 3:00 PM, so we gave it a solid run.  Hoping the lake flips soon, and can find some 10 pound bows and 15 pound kings snapping (last year had good action late October, when wind/waves allowed).

Sadly, don't think they're serving up pizza at the Buffalo yet, so we headed west on Hwy 10 with empty coolers and bellies.

Headed to T-Woc on Sunday morning and got started about 3:30 am.  Started in 50, worked out to 120 and looped back in.  Nothing!!!  Temps were 57 top to bottom all the way out to 75 and then I found 50 to 48 degrees from 75 to 90.  I hit just about every depth, but could not find the fish.   To make matters worse, with the big swells and being pitch black, got seasick for the first time in 30 years, which allowed me to chum, but that didn't work either!  Not sure where to find the fish this time of year. Any help would be helpful.   I was the only boat out there and when I came in at 9:00, there were only two others.  Very odd...   Kyle

I'm going out for deeper for silver fish tomorrow, but have seldom done well this time of year. Anyone have suggestions for depth, presentation, etc? What are the water temps out there lately? Thanks.

Gents,

Can someone tell me how big the waves are in T-Woc? Was thinking about doing a little fishing around 5:00 today, but its difficult to gage.  Hate driving from Kimberly if I can't make it out.  Also, have not seen any reports to figure out where the fish are currently.  I assume they are in close with temps on the surface around 52 in close.  

Thanks,


Kyle

Tjracer, we just went out of Two Rivers and used SalmonChasers.com.  The average cost is $500 or more per 5 hour trip with all the charters.  You are paying per boat.  We had 6 people split the cost and it averaged out to $100 per person with tip for the 1st mate.

Wife and I are camping vacationing in the two rivers area. Looking for a good recommendation for a charter boat for the 2 of us for a morning or afternoon trip out. Any recommendations would be great for us and if you know the average price that would be good too.  Thanks.
