OAK 7/3 and 7/5 - Pics added

Recommended Posts

Cell phone report due to another Time Warner equipment failure!!! Fished with good friend Ed aboard the "Bite Me" both days. Wednesday we only had a few hours to fish and we headed out slooowly in the fog Eastward in search mode. Although we never found much of anything covering water from 70 - 200 with a mix of spoons and flasher fly combos covering 20 - 90' of the water column. The water was cold and we never found any warm water and only and occasional mark. We only managed 3 lakers for our efforts, but weren't really expecting much after all the NE wind. We did find a lot of bait fish near the river jumping all over the place in the boat wake. Should've tried for Browns in retrospect. On Friday we fished again with Ed and my GF and niece joined us. We headed NW out of port and set up in 200fow with 4 riggers from 25 - 80' down and two dipseys with flasher fly rigs out 120 and 140. We began trolling in and it wasn't long before the steelhead were attacking our baits. We ended up putting two boards out each with a 150 copper with a moonshine bad toad and they would end up accounting half our fish. The girls fought every fish but one and did a great job only dropping 2 of the 19 fish on. We managed 3 kings from 15-18lbs with a few skippies and and one around 8lbs and the steelies were all 4-8lbs. We stayed in 150-200fow most of the day and found the more East we went, the colder the water was. Our hot lures were a moonshine bad toad in mag and regular and a blue glow spinny with a blue moonshine fly. The NK 42nd took a few as well. A great day on the water! Thanks Ed!
Back at it tomorrow hopefully.

Nice report Shawn. It was a crap shoot on which part of the lake anyone happened to be in that Friday. I, of course, not being any good at gambling, ended up going east of port first in the early morning. It was darn cold down there in front of the glass house. I could see my breath! After speaking with you we finally got out in front of port and managed a few steelies. Nothing huge so we let em swim. Only brought back the 12 lb. King that was in that cold water. He was 25 down, and went for the moonshine RV Crabface that was intended for steelhead. Lots of fish breaking the surface out east, and we ran a yozuri stick 150 back but no takers. Thanks for the tip on the action west of port!
