FISHING REPORT

Weekly Fishing Report 07.24.14

Fisher Girls

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM                                                      WATER FLOW: 195 CFS IN  272  CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 66

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities are open except for some campsites in North Shore The paving project continues.  According to the Contractor this is a HUGE project. Based on his assessment they will finish up at Rocky Ridge and the Visitor Center some time in July. The plan then is to head to North Shore specifically Rocky Flats Loop E and work toward the boat ramp. There will be rolling closures of campsites in the North Shore through some time in August if not the end of August. The Contractor does not expect to get to the North Shore boat ramp until mid August at the earliest so the boat ramp closures and disruption we feared in July will not happen and thats good news. The project will then move to the South Shore where they will chip and seal rather then asphalt. For further details and campsite availabilty call the Park office at 719-748-0317. The weeds have arrived making trolling on the West end more difficult. The fish do hang around those weeds as they are always carrying food.

TROUT: EXCELLENT: The great bite continues with lots of fish being caught. Look for Cuttbows, Rainbows and occasional Browns running 13 to 24 inches. More Browns have been showing up lately which seems a little unusual but we'll take it. Trolling is extremely effective with lead core line, downrigger and cowbells. We prefer the downrigger or lead core rigged clean, line to lure. Needlefish continue to be a hot spoon this year. Tasmanian Devils have been coming on strong. Color patterns can change daily although pink has been the most consistent. Look to greens and chartruese on cloudy days. One thing for sure is the bigger fish have been biting between 11:00AM and 1:00PM.

KOKANEE: POOR: People are still catching a salmon here and there. Most are big ones and most are coming out of the North Shore area out from the marina. A number of things work like a sling blade or dodger with a Dick Nite, Needlefish or Hoochie attached with about a three foot leader. Fish are running 15 to 40 feet deep.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR TO GOOD: There are nice fish being caught but you will pay your dues. Action continues to improve but you will work for those big ones. Work shallow water using large Rapala's or big spoons and big tube jigs. Mid morning from 8:30AM to 11:00AM seems to be the best.

ONLINE STORE UPDATE: We hope to have this thing up and running any day. Sorry we have been so lame in getting it done but apparently the busy summer season got in the way.

Frank finally gets a big one

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM                                                      WATER FLOW: 287 CFS IN  295  CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 61

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities are open except for some campsites in North Shore The paving project continues.  According to the Contractor this is a HUGE project. Based on his assessment they will finish up at Rocky Ridge and the Visitor Center some time in July. The plan then is to head to North Shore specifically Rocky Flats Loop E and work toward the boat ramp.

The project will then move to the South Shore where they will chip and seal rather then asphalt.

TROUT: EXCELLENT: There are still anglers that have a hard time hooking up here but thats because they lack experience at Eleven MIle. Those who know the lake are having a time of their lives with some of the best catching ever. Trolling, Casting, Fly fishing and sitting on the shore all have seen excellent action. Rainbows,Cuttbows and Browns ranging from 13 to 23 inches are common. The bite is spread through out the day with afternoon seeing big fish when you least expect it.Caught from shore Many baits are working. Stop in before you hit the lake for info on the colors and lures working that day.

KOKANEE: POOR: People are still catching a salmon here and there. Most are big ones and most are coming out of the North Shore area out from the marina. A number of things work like a sling blade or dodger with a Dick Nite, Needlefish or Hoochie attched with about a three foot leader. Fish are running 15 to 40 feet deep.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR TO GOOD: There are nice fish being caught but you will pay your dues. Action continues to improve but you will work for those big ones. Work shallow water using large Rapala's or big spoons and big tube jigs. Mid morning from 8:30AM to 11:00AM seems to be the best.

An 11 Mile Marina Guided success.

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY. ITS ABOUT FREEDOM

BIG FISH ALERT BIG FISH ALERT BIG FISH ALERT

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM                                                      WATER FLOW: 277 CFS IN  276  CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 60

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities and campsites are open for the 4th of July Holiday. The paving project continues.  According to the Contractor this is a HUGE project. Based on his assessment they will finish up at Rocky Ridge and the Visitor Center some time in July. The plan then is to head to North Shore specifically Rocky Flats Loop E and work toward the boat ramp. There will be rolling closures of campsites in the North Shore through some time in August if not the end of August.

The project will then move to the South Shore where they will chip and seal rather then asphalt.

TROUT:VERY EXCELLENT TO SPECTACULAR: For those of us who have fished this lake for a long time, I don't think we have seen a bite like this in a long time if ever. Normally you see big fish at ice off and as the summer progresses the recent stocker action takes hold and bigger fish are elusive. For the last 10 days many fish ranging from 18 to 24 inches have been landed by many anglers. The shore anglers get them at night and the boaters get them trolling deep or drifting working tube jigs. The  #2 Rainbow Needlefish has been one of the better patterns of late but so many different lures are producing including Tasmanian Devil, Rapala and Krocodiles. This week was so good we will put some additional pics below to get your juices flowing.Fishing is his favorite thingWait a minute , could you stand by our logo with those big fishAnother 11 Mile Marina Guided successI think I'll get a few more of those Tasmanian Devils

KOKANEE: POOR: Not much change here. Action is sporadic and frustrating. Fish being caught but it goes in spurts. North Shore to Deer Island on the troll down 25 to 35 feet. No specific bait works the best. But Tasmanian Devils, Dick Nites and Arnies Dynamic and or Reflecto's work well. The bite has been mid morning for now.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR TO GOOD: There are nice fish being caught but you will pay your dues. Action continues to improve but you will work for those big ones. Work shallow water using large Rapala's or big spoons and big tube jigs. Mid morning from 8:30AM to 11:00AM seems to be the best.

Weekly Fishing Fishing 06.26.14

Lots of nice ones like these being caught

MARINA STORE HOURS : MONDAY-SUNDAY 7:00AM - 7:00PM                                                      WATER FLOW: 285 CFS IN  315  CFS OUT

WATER TEMP: 58

CURRENT CONDITIONS: All Park facilities are open, some campsites are closed. Paving project has started. Call Park Office for up to date information 719-748-3401. Afternoon squalls have been common. They may only last 20 minutes but they can be fierce. Keep your eyes on the sky and get off the lake before its too late. Those in substantial boats can just ride them out.

TROUT:VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT: The strong bite continues. The anglers on the troll seem to fare the best. Lots of lures and presentations working. Lead Core with Dick Nites and Arnies Dynamic consistently catch a lot of fish. Tasmanian Devils and Kastmasters also have been productive. The down rigger worked in deeper water with Rapala's off of North Shore has seen many bigger fish then you will see on the West side of the lake. The bite seems to stretch the entire day. Granted there may be slow times but not many.

KOKANEE: POOR: Action is sporadic and frustrating. Fish being caught but it goes in spurts. North Shore to Deer Island on the troll down 25 to 35 feet. No specific bait works the best. But Tasmanian Devils, Dick Nites and Arnies Dynamic and or Reflecto's work well. The bite has been mid morning for now.

NORTHERN PIKE: FAIR TO GOOD: Action has picked up considerably. Work shallow water using large Rapala's or big spoons and big tube jigs, There are good size fish being caught but not by everyone. Presentation and timing are very important. Better to pitch big stick baits than troll.
