FISHING REPORT

Weekly Fishing Report 08.28.14

Lots of nice Northern Pike like this being caught

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM   EFFECTIVE TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2, HOURS: MONDAY-SUNDAY 8:00AM - 4:00PM   

 WATER FLOW: 104 CFS IN     161  CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 63

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities are open. Water level dropping based on current flows. North Shore Parking Lot paving project is just about complete. Weeds are not as bad as the water temperature starts to cool and it feels like Fall. Weather report for Labor Day Weekend looks good.

TROUT: VERY GOOD: Big fish are being caught frequently by many happy anglers. Tube jigging has been very effective. White, Pearl Pepper and Pumpkin Pepper have consistently produced fish over four pounds. Trolling has picked up again. If you thought your Needlefish would always work think again. Every now and then you have to switch up. Try Tasmanian Devils in 13 and 7 gram size. Lots of different patterns have been working. We have a great selection on hand. Arnies and Kastmasters have also been productive. Lead Core rigs have done extremely well. Shore anglers feeling good particularly at sunset.

KOKANEE SALMON: POOR TO UGLY: The fish being caught are large four year olds. The primary area is from North Shore to Goose Island, Howbert Point to Duck Island. We have caught them in 35 feet of water off of Howbert, in 45 feet off of Goose and in 60 feet in the Channel off North Shore. Down riggers more effective than lead core. Arnies Dynamic and Reflecto in green, pink and white Needlefish , #55 Tasmanian Devil and Macks Wedding Ring have been productive.

NORTHERN PIKE:  GOOD: The action is getting better and better each day.  Look to early to mid morning and mid to late afternoon. Black and Brown Spinner Baits have done well although you should try all the colors in your tackle box. Big stick baits work well if you are persistent. Fire tiger always a favorite of the big ones. Work the weed line not the beds at Stoll Mountain, Howbert and Witchers Cove.

Weekly Fishing Report 08.21.14

Her first big fish on a tube jig

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM        

 WATER FLOW: 183 CFS IN     207 CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 65

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities are open. The paving project has made great progress on the main boat ramp lot. They stop work for the weekend so those coming down will see how awesome it looks (and feels) particularly on your boat trailer.  The weeds continue making trolling all around the lake difficult. Large Islands of submerged weed beds can grab your down rigger cable and rip your down rigger off your boat if you are not careful. They do come up and down so there are periods in the day when they are not as bad. The fish do hang around those weeds as they are always carrying food. Occasional showers in the afternoon have kept things green and now we are seeing lots of flowers.

TROUT: GOOD: There have been a lot of large fish caught for this time of year. Trollers doing well in mid morning to early afternoon with Needlefish and Tas Devils.  Many big fish being caught on tube jigs in 15 to 20 feet of water. Fly fishers also popping the big ones in the early mornings at Coyote Ridge and Cross Creek near the weed beds. Stone flies, Damsels, Stimulators and Zonkers are getting the most action. Float tubers are seeing good fish in 20 to 30 feet of water with a Hopper/Dropper combination along North Shore and near Howbert Point. Shore anglers having fun too with Power Bait and the Night crawler/mallow sandwich floated off the bottom.Ladies day at the lake. And how! What a fish. Cuttbows and Rainbows are showing up in the 16 to 21 inch range. August is turning out to be a great month.

KOKANEE: POOR TO UGLY: The fish being caught are large four year olds. The primary area is from North Shore to Goose Island, Howbert Point to Duck Island. We have caught them in 35 feet of water off of Howbert, in 45 feet off of Goose and in 60 feet in the Channel off North Shore. Down riggers more effective than lead core. Arnies Dynamic and Reflecto in green, pink and white Needlefish , #55 Tasmanian Devil and Macks Wedding Ring have been productive.

PIKE:  GOOD: It is still about being at the right spot at the right time. The bite is usually short but intense. Look to early to mid morning and mid to late afternoon. Black and Brown Spinner Baits have done well although you should try all the colors in your tackle box. Big stick baits work well if you are persistent. Fire tiger always a favorite of the big ones. Work the weed line not the beds at Stoll Mountain, Howbert and Witchers Cove.

Weekly Fishing Report 08.14.14

Hooked for life. Caught on his new Shakespeare Salamander Combo

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM        

 WATER FLOW: 205 CFS IN     218 CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 66

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities are open. The paving project makes it to the Main Boat ramp for the next week or so. Should be only a minor inconvenience.  For further details and campsite availability call the Park office at 719-748-0317. The weeds have arrived making trolling all around the lake difficult. Large Islands of submerged weed beds can grab your down rigger cable and rip your down rigger off your boat if you are not careful. The fish do hang around those weeds as they are always carrying food. It is a bright green up here which is a welcomed change from the previous years of fire. Time for a camp fire and some smores.

TROUT: FAIR TO GOOD: Full moon is on the wane and action is picking up. Trollers are having a hard time with the weeds but fish can be caught if you are vigilant and keep that line clean. Needlefish and Tasmanian Devils have worked well all season but other baits like Rapala, Kastmaster and Super Duper also have been doing well of late. Those on the jig do well but action is sporadic and usually is good either side of an afternoon weather event. Pumpkin Pepper and Pearl Pepper have been consistent successful color patterns. Shore anglers also having fun particularly at night. Power Bait in Salmon Peach, Rainbow and any flavor with garlic have been landing fish.

KOKANEE: POOR: The majority of fish being caught are large four year olds. The primary area is from North Shore to Goose Island, Howbert Point to Duck Island. We have caught them in 35 feet of water off of Howbert, in 45 feet off of Goose and in 60 feet in the Channel off North Shore. Down riggers more effective than lead core. Arnies Dynamic and Reflecto in green, pink and white Needlefish , #55 Tasmanian Devil and Macks Wedding Ring have been productive.

PIKE: FAIR TO GOOD: Action has been picking up. Anglers fishing here using heavy steel leaders and or braided line tied directly to their baits will consistently catch less fish than those using other methods. Take a chance and use 10 pound mono and catch more fish. Spinner Baits and large tube jigs along with Husky Jerks doing well. The West end is fun when you work the weed beds but fish can be caught all around the lake. Patience is a virtue and helps catch fish.

Weekly Fishing Report 08.07.14

Frank's fish

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM        

 WATER FLOW: 262 CFS IN     213 CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 66

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities are open except for some campsites in North Shore. The paving project makes it to the Main Boat ramp starting Tuesday.   For further details and campsite availabilty call the Park office at 719-748-0317. The weeds have arrived making trolling all around the lake difficult. Large Islands of submerged weed beds can grab your down rigger cable and rip your down rigger off your boat if you are not careful. The fish do hang around those weeds as they are always carrying food. Rain has been visiting us like many places around the State. Our rain tends to show up in late afternoon. It definately is not raining all day and fishing action remains strong. It is a bright green up here which is a welcomed change from the previous years of fire.

TROUT: FAIR TO GOOD: Full moon is coming on and the bite at night is stronger than day. As we head into August and the dog days of summer prevail you might have to change tactics. Trolling is becoming more and more difficult as floating and submerged weed beds get in the way. You simply won't catch if you are dragging even a little weed. Make sure to check your line often. Down riggers are less likely to be effected. The cable can pick up weeds but not the lure. Needlefish and Tasmanian Devils continue to be productive. We have had decent action on Super Dupers and Thomas Bouyants on the down rigger. Try pitching tube jigs or Kastmasters around the weeds on a cast and retrieve.  Shore anglers have had very good action as the weather moves in and out with action right before the rain being excellent. Night anglers have been very happy. Salmon Peach Power Bait has been the big winner this week and don't forget the famous Eleven Mile marshmallow crawler sandwich

KOKANEE: POOR: The majority of fish being caught are large four year olds. The primary area is from North Shore to Goose Island, Howbert Point to Duck Island. We have caught them in 35 feet of water off of Howbert, in 45 feet off of Goose and in 60 feet in the Channel off North Shore. Down riggers more effective than lead core. Arnies Dynamic and Reflecto in green, pink and white Needlefish , #55 Tasmanian Devil and Macks Wedding Ring have been productive.

PIKE: FAIR: If you fish the whole day you will get on the bite which has been sporadic but generally between 2:00PM and 4:30PM. Bill's Spinner Bait in Black/Blue and Orange/Brown have worked well. Large Rapala in Firetiger and Black/White also doing well. The weeds on the West end  a lot of fish the rocks on the East hold the bigger fish. Pitching lures and spinner baits more productive than trolling.
