What’s a good temp to start with?  I thought I heard 49 is a good place to start but can’t remember.

40-55 degrees, being the relative upper and lower limits.  Find a temp that works, and work it.

I like to start off with my probe rigger in 50-52 degree water . Then my other rigger 15-20 ft deeper than my probe rigger in colder water . Same with my dipseys. Then 2 rods above 50 degree in out of temp water. Once fish start hitting , then I know where to dial them in .

I like my thermostat set at 68.
Seriously--forget about temp. ....you'll be much better off.

Fish the marks you see on the fish finder.  Now that August is here, temp means nothing to mature kings.  Lots of kings will be found in bath water at this time of the year.

Why just "in the 2nd week of August"???
Are those not fish you mark in 68 degree water in July?
How about those marks in 39 degree water in May?

Staging salmon don’t react to water temperature as readily when they are preparing to spon . They are off the feed and in sponing mode. Temperature means very little to them that time of year. When the river water cools enough and the flow is rite they will begin to run.
It’s the end of there life cycle.
They will congregate close to the river and stack up waiting for conditions to be rite.

FISH THE MARKS.

There are lots of fish outside the fleet. And it’s a hell of a lot less stressful. I’ve never squeezed in and have always caught my share.
To each his own. I go fishing to relax and have fun. Hard to have fun combat trolling.

I don’t use my probe after the 2 nd week of August till end of September. Because I’m fishing kings that are staging , getting ready to run the river . Like in this pic.IMG_2107.thumb.JPG.d0763467d611607e4b759fcd0ec21bd1.JPG

 

 

If you read my first post . You would see that I run 2 rods in 50-52 degree water , 2 rods in cold water and 2 rods in warm water .
