CONDITIONS: Hot and Dry. Stage 2 fire ban in effect. No campfires.
WATER FLOW: CFS 101 IN 78.4 CFS OUT WATER TEMP: 63
TROUT: EXCELLENT: Boaters are doing way better than shore anglers. Night shore anglers fare much better than the day anglers. Trollers can’t get a minute to have a snack. Lots of spoons and baits working. Needlefish, Dick Nites, Kastmasters and Tas Devils continue their great production. Color changes based on the time of day. Lots of fish suspended 15 to 25 feet deep. Lead core rigs, down riggers and cow bells all producing. We are talking serious catching. Lots of smaller fish mostly Rainbows, Cutbows and Cutthroats running 14 to 16 inches but there are a fair number of bigger fish up to 7 pounds being landed. The action off a boat is non stop and tons of fun. .
SALMON: FAIR: The action has picked up significantly. We got five on one outing and repeated the next day. Pink Tasmanian Devil and Chartreuse Arnies Dynamic down 40 feet on the down rigger in 60 feet of water just outside the Marina.
NORTHERN PIKE: POOR: They must be fat and happy because they sure are hard to catch. Not impossible but hard.
HOURS: M-S 7:00AM – 7:00PM
