Went out this morning, and got 1 salmon, a giant white perch (14.5”), a few bass, and four lakers. Lost a big lake trout in the prop wash when I hit it with the net and snapped it off. 7 colors of lead with flys, and 35 on the rigger with a horizontal flasher and dbs today. Lost a few other good fish on the way in.
The salmon my dad got was 20” ish, and healthy looking. He did two or three great aerials before he came to the net. Another great morning for us.
The fishing has been great this week, but the weather has done a full 180. Cooler, windy, and I think it may scatter th fish. We had water temps over 75 in the surface in some spots before the front moved in, and I would suspect that to dramatically change.
We got salmon pretty much each morning and afternoon. We have landed a few nice males over 20”, and one of them had a gnarly kype, and beautiful colors. They have mostly come on lead core 4-7 colors down with about half the salmon on the riggers. The rainbows have been elusive with only two in the boat, and we have gotten lakers in their usual haunts this time of year.
Leadcore has been exclusively catching with small single flies. Hardware has only produced on the riggers, and mostly at 52’ down, but it has been scattered for the dr’s. All the dr action early was accompanied by an in line or horizontal flasher, but with the weather change they flashers/blades seems to be less effective.
Hopefully this helps some of you who are going out tomorrow/tonight. It’s been an awesome week for us. We have caught a lot of quality fish, and have had awesome weather. I may post some pics when i get back home and can use my pc.
Good luck for those who go out tomorrow!
