Jigging seems to be best this time of year. Random depths from 40-180 ft of water about 8” off the bottom. Troll with planer boards closer to shore.
Opens Sat the 18th for General Fishing Season. All three branches are running clean and green! Fly fishing – use Prince Nymphs or Olive Scuds for your wet flies. Try a Royal Coachman for dry flies.
Decent Salmon right now. Jigging in 15-30 ft of water. Use Hali in a white glow with corn and maggots to conceal hook.
Focus on structure like weeds, rock piles or timber to target Bass and Pike. Pike are hitting well off jerk baits. Crappie bite is slow, but will take off with warmer temps.
Water level is still LOW! Be careful when entering from river. Smaller Pike being caught.
Bass have been tricky to catch this past week. Be ready to try different styles of fishing for success. Try fishing slow and low in the morning and mid-level crank baits later in the day.
Use caution when entering by river as water level is still LOW! Good numbers of small Pike using crank baits. A few reports of Crappie and Perch using Pete’s Crappie Candy.
East Bay is still producing Perch on calm days. Lake Trout are doing well off Woods Bay Point and off Angel Point.
Cutthroat action is doing well right where the many creeks run in the main body. Use Panther Martins for Mepps in gold combos. For flies, try using a Hair’s Ear or an Orange Scud.

Thanks to Walleye Unlimited for the new dock extension at the State Park! Perch have been slow but will pick up quick with warmer temps.
Good Pike action being reported, but nothing large. Use a good Perch pattern Rapala. Perch are being caught both shallow and deep.
Fun lake to take the kids Pike fishing. Black and Orange spinner baits should be the ticket. Also try using a swim jig with a small paddle tail.
Pike fishing has been good for some on the North End. Use frozen bait on a pike hanger rig under a bobber. With a second pole, use a Red/White Daredevil and jig/retrieve in an aggressive manner.
