  1. Brought friend out who rented a cottage on the lake. Targeted rainbows. Got 4 and one LT, nothing real big. All fish came on 200 copper with silver Sutton 44. Nothing on riggers or other coppers. Some fleas but not terrible. 

  2. Fished 5:30-10:30 this morning, north end, with friend. Fish were biting. Targeted bows, boated 21”, 24” and “25,” lost a couple others. Also picked up 3 lakers, 15 foot down on rigger, surprised us. All fish on silver Sutton 44’s. 100 copper, 200 copper and riggers down 15-25 feet all produced. 



  3. Trolled south end, 6:00-11:00. 1 for 3 on bows. Landed 23”, lost big one by the boat, put on quite the show, leapt a couple feet up about 15 feet behind the boat, then broke the line after wrapping around a rigger cable, should have pulled it up. 2 of them came on 100 copper, 1 on 200 copper. Pink and watermelon spoons were the color, they wouldn’t touch all silver today. Picked up 1 LT on our deepest rigger set at 55ft. Great morning to be out there before the rain came in.

  4. Well, we put in a lot of hours today and just one small coho. Marked tons of bait and fish 40-60 FOW. Tried about everything, meat, FF, all kinds of spoons on riggers, dipseys and copper. Apparently we needed to go out deeper (100-140 FOW) away from the bait, per a guy we talked to on our way in. The theory being you need to be away from the bait, if your to close the fish have better options than lures. Feels a bit counterintuitive as I’ve always looked for bait / fish. Anyway he had the fish to prove it.  Going to give it another go this week as I have some time off work. Any thoughts would be appreciated.  

  5. I went out last weekend. Definitely charted most of the fish at the south end where the water was the warmest. Picked up a couple small ones about 25 ft down in 80-100 FOW. Heard reports some nice browns have been caught as well. I have the best luck with natural and silver spoons, Sutton’s of course always a good place to start. Good luck, beautiful down there!

  6. Skipped work, solo trip,  toured whole lake from north to south. Surface water temps:
    43.6 north end

    44.2 deep run

    45.6 menteth point 

    46.4 bristol harbor

    49.1 south end

    Took a quick look at each stop. Charted practically no fish in colder temps. At south end in warmer water charted lots up high in the water. Dropped lines there, kept them high, above lakers. Two small bows was all I could pick up. One on 100 copper, other one on rigger 20 feet down. Both on silver spoons. Beautiful morning to be on a quiet lake!
