Good job. It was the same bite your way Friday for my clients as well. Crazy awesome chew going on. Shaping up to be like last year.

We got into them pretty good Saturday morning also (4/20).  Same area.  This was the first time me and my dad have fished the lake.  Ten or 15 years back we fished the Salmon River in March for steelhead a handful of times.  Been talking about getting back up and finally did.  Decided on the lake since the river is so tough to wade.  I wanted to say how helpful all of your posts were for us.  I spent quite a few hours going through the forum and taking notes on lures and so on.  It is pretty cool how so many of you help out others like myself who need the guidance on the water.  Thanks! 

 

I just had one question about the pic posted above with the lures and the 2 black circle items.  Are those divers or something of that sort (the 2 black things)?  We played around with the mini planner boards and I also sent some lures way behind the boat (150 + feet).  Attached a few pics here.

Yes the black things in my lure picture are divers, Chinook divers. I really like over all other diver presentations this time of year. They are a size 1.

Thanks for the reply and heads up!  We were focusing on 8 - 12 fow so I avoided the down riggers.  Never used the divers before.  Working the edge of the muddy water for the most part is what we were doing.  I have seen posts about the different formulas for the divers for certain depths.  Can you provide any info on the amount of line out / depth of water you were focusing on?  We did pick up a couple of fish in 20 fow before we got closer to the mouth of Sandy.  We were just trolling stickbaits with no weight or anything.

We spent the majority of the day in 17-25 fow in "green water".

Probably our hottest setup on sunday was our diver setups. 25' out on a 3 setting with a 12' leader pulling a DW SS lemon ice spoon.

Thanks for the information.  So you were down about 8 feet then? 

 

Curious if anyone uses egg sinkers in front of the leader in order to get lures down about the same distance?  Assuming the flexibility with these divers makes them a better choice though?  We were using 9 foot noodle rods with spinning reels so I am thinking that those rods would not be able to take the stress from the divers.

Keel weights, large split shot, small big Jon disks, tadpoles, Leadcore, short copper etc etc.  lots of options and no one way is magical.

I use small mini divers and never really liked them. Slide Diver never really sold me either. I had some Chinooks given to me and started playing with them. Two seasons in and I love them for skinny water (50' or less). 

Diversity in the spread is always something I go for. Skinny water fishing means flatlines off big boards, divers, and riggers (7-11 rod spreads). As we slide out deeper those flatlines change to leadcores and coppers and our divers get bigger and bigger.

Okay.  Thanks for that added detail. 

 

Can you just clarify why the riggers and divers now?  Instead of one or the other?  Does it just revolve around spreading the lines out behind the boat?

Was just wondering what not all riggers instead of using the divers.   Or the other way around. 

 

I only have 3 riggers on the boat. I use 2 out 3 when inside of 25'. Outside of that all three get used. I always have a minimum of 2 divers in the water. Like I said before, I am running 7-11 rods most of the time and I like diversity.
