I was out yesterday and it was slow while fishing shallower waters (40' to 100') so after an hour or two without a single strike I moved to deeper water (approx 200'). Fishing 50' to 65' deep, I promptly caught a beautiful Rainbow about 12 or so pounds followed up by a 12 pound Chinook.

I caught both fish on spoons with a dodger, one on a blue/orange-yellow pattern and the other on a green/black dotted pattern with pink iridescent tape. I tried to match the dodger colour to the spoons (both fish were released).

Some people advised me to fish shallow but the Chinooks that are shallow, are dark and half dead. I think I'll stay deep for the next couple of weeks while I can still get out on the water before the weather turns and makes it more difficult. I was hoping to go out today, but the strong wind warning may put an end to that.

I also fished shallow as I was hoping to catch a Brown as I haven't caught one yet and was wondering if anybody on here has caught Browns along the Whitby/Ajax/Pickering shoreline?

I pulled my boat out of Newcastle last sunday. We went for one last fish before pulling the pin. We went 5 for 6. 3 bows and 2 kings (one shaker, 1 around 8 lbs). We only fished for a few hours and was far from prime time (9am-1 pm). kings both came on dipsy with SD/fly. Bows on spoons down 50 ish. fished from 200 fow - 300 fow.

I was out the other day with my son, but he was feeling ill so we only fished for an hour and still managed to bag a big Chinook in the mid to late teens. As I was preparing to set the riggers again, I had let out about 50' of line and was getting ready to set it on the Black's release that I favour, when a fish nailed my spoon with the line still wrapped around my finger! Fortunately I was able to drop the line before I made a mess of my finger but I wasn't able to get the rod out of the holder and set the hook in time.

Oh well next time!

Still lots of fish in 200' of water but the Chinook we caught was down 120'.

Sorry to hear that the salmon weren't to be had. I hope to get out Saturday afternoon and if I manage to get any fish, I'll post news, and hopefully, some pics on here.

I like your link and here are a couple of links I check before I head out:

I also have those in my repertoire. I also recommend windfinder, it has swell forecast and everything too. I've linked it below. Saturday will likely be our last fish of the year. Not sure where we'll try our luck but good luck to you.

Not a problem. Not so much today. We went to Long Point bay in Lake Erie. Not much there this time of year - a lot of fishing pressure. Got a few small ones (Perch etc.) and caught a pike trolling but that's it. May have one more go at Lake Ontario next week but it's a coin toss. But ya, use those sites. They're pretty reliable and can make all the difference if you're in a "tippy canoe".
