Compared to the last few weeks, this past weeks fishing was definately slower. Creel numbers went from 12 to 30 fish per trip to 6 to 15 fish per trip with a mixed bag of chinook salmon, coho salmon, steelhead and lake trout. Then we got hit with the strong winds and storms on Friday and Saturday and the water temperature went from 76 degrees to 45 degrees and the fish scattered. On Sunday there were fish caught from the pier head out to 200 foot, however the bite was slow. Today we caught 19 fish from 90 foot of water out to 190 foot with the best fishing in 180 to 190 foot.

The best bait combinations continues to be flashers and flies and some plugs. On the downriggers, dipsy divers and 300 copper we are pulling white fish scale 11 in Pro Troll with a Rapture Illusion fly, the super frog with a hypnotist fly, white blue bubble with a Rapture blue bubble fly, green wiggle with illusion fly, mixed veggie with wild fern fly. On the 100 copper and on the 200 copper we are running Ace Hi plugs (silver red head, green glow UV, wonderbread, and green splatter back).
