Matthew Lee submits this weeks winner in a night of fun and frolic in the dark with Pink and White Power Bait.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp open Friday through Sunday. Periodic rain has kept things green. No fire bans and it’s been a long time since we have gone into Summer without one. Yeh! Smores all the way around.

WATER FLOW:   IN 509  CFS    OUT: 615 CFS Water Temp 61

MARINA STORE AND LAKE SPECIALISTS: Camping, Fishing, Flies, Lures, Bait, Clothing, Food, Snacks, Drinks, Ice Cream and more.  Stop in and check out our offerings and get the latest fishing information.  We have a great store with great selection of what works.  Support the fishing report... Shop our store here at the lake. Stop in and find out how we can help you catch. Get a topo map. They say information is power. It's also critical to catching fish. The maps have GPS coordinates on them so you just can't miss. We want you to be successful here at the Mile. Get a map we will mark it up with the hot spots.

LEAD CORE TROLLING RIGS catch more fish. Let us show you how. Combo’s fully rigged with lead line and leader ready to catch starting at $129.00.

POWER BAIT: New Flavor just came out. Find it at 11 Mile Marina almost exclusively. Only 10 jars left. Be the first one the shore with new Bumble Bee!

FLIES: Not particularly a fly shop but did you know we stock almost 300 different patterns with those that do well in the area from the Canyon to the lake to Dream Stream and Spinney.


TROUT:VERY GOOD: Action continues to be strong day and night. Lots of anglers never see the lake in the day time and prefer angling at night. It is always fun and exciting to catch fish in the dark. Most are using bait, some use fly and a bubble. Fish in pic above caught on Power Bait. Boaters on the troll continue their winning run. Fly anglers hitting well on mid and late morning Callebeatis. Rivers are still very difficult if not impossible to fish. At 615 CFS the Canyon is a raging river. At 509 CFS the Dream Stream is full of debris. Early AM and mid morning are very productive but fish are being caught through out the day. Tas Devils and Needlefish always a favorite.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: No limits but action none the less. Silver and blue has been a good color combination this week. Look to North Shore Marina in deep water down 12 to 30 feet. Down rigger and or lead core always a benefit. Action also around Duck Island and a surprise fish every now and then off of Rocking Chair in 40 feet of water. Long line 13gram Tas Devils if you don’t have the downrigger or lead core. Or pop in a buy a lead core already rigged with lead line and leader. You can’t go wrong.

NORTHERN PIKE: GOOD: Fish caught are getting a little bigger. Lots of little ones too. Work the weed line along the overflow channel West of Stoll or the channel from Suckers Cove East to the wash out and then down to Lazy Boy. We still like Howbert to Witchers and coves in between. Deer Island hidden treasure for big fish but it takes work at rock drop offs. Big sticks, big tubes and Spinner Baits have done well. Mid morning to early afternoon.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

The WEEKLY FISHING Report is produced by fishermen for fishermen. We try to get it done every Thursday but some times fishing or life gets in the way. So if its not there on Thursday morning it will show up by Friday. We appreciate all the support and acknowledge that many of you won't miss a week. Many Thanks. Oh and by the way there may not always be a  fish  pic.

Reservations and payments taken over the phone and purchases on line via credit card are secure.

TROUT:VERY EXCELLENT: It is more like late Spring than early Summer and the bite is on. Action is non stop from the boat. Shore action is good but takes a little more effort. Power Bait, any color with garlic. We also have garlic nightcrawlers that work well with a mallow. Trolling is non stop action. Many baits are working. Color patterns change with the time of the day. Pinks and greens continue to work well but blue and silver and orange and white have also done well. Rapala’s typically slow up as we head into Summer but they still are a hot bait.

Justin Penrod of Pueblo this weeks winner. A picture is always worth a 1000 words but his story below doesn’t hurt either.

“Family getaway to Elevenmile. With unpredictable winds we chose to shore fish. Stopped into 11 Mile Marina, after taking a look outside the girl behind the counter recommended PowerBait Chartreuse with glitter. Then she said “wait, can’t go wrong with the garlic”.
Started off on Friday June 21st just west of 11 Mile Marina. There’s a nice parking lot with a bathroom and picnic tables.
In the mix of helping with my families pole riggings, I was getting a nibble, I slowly started setting things down, trying to avoid jinxing the light tugs for wind and surf action. I reached for my pole which was properly secured by a rock and a water bottle for good angle.
I brought my pole up about waist height and slowly took the slack from the line and “bam”!! The game was on, I set the hook and watched that hog get air born! Almost 4’ from the surface he cleared the water before splashing in and making a run. I was shocked by the size and I immediately thought “is my line gonna hold? Should I loosen my drag? that’s a good idea!” After I was done overthinking the situation I brought him into shore. My wife and kids were screaming “oh my gosh” “wow” “Way to go, dad”!!
It was my weekend:)”

Although size matters many factors are evaluated.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp only open Friday through Sunday. Water level rising dramatically. Afternoon rains have kept fire danger down. It’s feast or famine in Colorado and we may be out of drought but downstream areas may be in for flooding.

WATER FLOW:   IN 624  CFS    OUT: 455 CFS This is a lot of water. Lake has been rising to maximum levels.

WATER TEMP: 56

MARINA STORE AND LAKE SPECIALISTS: Camping, Fishing, Flies, Lures, Bait, Clothing, Food, Snacks, Drinks, Ice Cream and more.  Stop in and check out our offerings and get the latest fishing information.  We have a great store with great selection of what works.  Support the fishing report...

TROUT: EXCELLENT: The fishing is great and the bite even better. Lots of Cuttbows ranging 14 to 20 inches. Occasional Browns and Cutthroats have also been landed. Most methods are working from shore or boat. Boaters are having a grand time on the troll but you can drift and pitch and still do OK. Bite times vary through out the day. Early and mid morning is the best. Same baits are working with color pattern variations depending on time of day. Can’t go wrong with Pink. Chartreuse Dynamac by Arnies or the Arnies Reflecto in Green have caught some big fish. This is a great time to go through the tackle box and see which lure catches the biggest. Cowbells and pop gear for those that like that angle are best trolled super slow with a 3 foot leader tipped with crawler. Since the rivers are most difficult if not impossible to fish a fly rod from a boat is both successful and avoids the elbow to elbow crowd seen on the dream stream. Kalibeatis hatch coming on daily late morning. Work two flies on one rig. Gold bead nymphs are a favorite.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: There have been kokes showing up in shallow water. This is a bad sign of things to come. These fish are disoriented and dying from Gill Lice. We have seen it before. They are typically by themselves and are not biting. You can net them if you wanted. Meanwhile out in the deep action continues to be sporadic but you can still catch them if you are in the right place at the right time. The backside of Duck Island has been consistent but you need to be careful of the rocks. They seem to be holding right at the drop offs from the island. You can be in 60 feet of water and hit 30 just like that. Also work the channel from Duck through North Shore to Goose Island. Tas Devils, Macks’s Wedding Rings, Dick Nite’s, Needledish and Kastmasters have all caught fish. We have been tipping our hooks and that seems to help. Pautzke Fire Corn in Natural or Pink has performed well.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO GOOD: More fish being reported by more anglers. Although a few big ones have been tagged most are running 24 to 30 inches. Work the weed line along the overflow channel West of Stoll or the channel from Suckers Cove East to the wash out and then down to Lazy Boy. WE still like Howbert to Witchers and coves in between. Big sticks, big tubes and Spinner Baits have done well. Mid morning to early afternoon. Wind is your friend if you can handle it. Water gets murky fish get aggressive.

Although size matters many factors are evaluated.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. All Park facilities are open. Witchers Cove Boat Ramp only open Friday through Sunday. Spring is still springing. Massive snow in the high country which evaporates when hit by the sunny mornings produces regular afternoon weather. Look for brief thunderstorms or showers almost everyday. The days start off super nice leading to brief weather events in the afternoon followed by super nice. Spring runoff is just now beginning and big water is on its way.

WATER FLOW:   IN 292  CFS    OUT: 126 CFS WATER TEMP: 54

TROUT: EXCELLENT: Water temp is just right. Boaters can’t keep up with the bite. If your trolling the right bait you are catching fish big time. If you are trolling the wrong bait you might still catch a fish. All the standard Eleven Mile baits are on fire. From Rapala right on down the line. Tas Devils hot! Kastmaster hot! Shore action is not as active but still good. Night fishing is happening all night long but especially at 2:00AM. Fly guys and gals are having a blast.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: Action is sporadic but fish have been being caught regularly. Pink is a favorite color. Needlefish, Tas Devils, Mack’s in a variety of patterns ie Wedding Ring and Hoochies. Depth vary from 10 to 35 feet in 50 and 60 feet of water. If you don’t see them on the locator just long line it instead of down rigger or lead core because when they are at 10 feet you won’t be seeing them on your electronics but they are around. Straight out from the Marina in deep water down to Ducl Island. Back side of Duck has been good. A few around Deer Island also but don’t go to far East. Bite times are variable with late morning and late afternoon a good bet.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO GOOD: Water temperature is just right.Action has improved significantly. Big fish on the prowl and biting. Spinner Baits in white or Chartreuse. Rapala, Husky Jerks and other sticks. Work the shallows from Cross Creek to Stoll or Howbert to Witchers. Early morning can surprise. Late morning to mid afternoon is best.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

Massive snow in the high country which evaporates when hit by the sunny mornings produces regular afternoon weather. Look for brief thunderstorms or showers almost everyday. The days start off super nice leading to brief weather events in the afternoon followed by super nice. Spring runoff has hardly begun. Spinney is probably about 80% full. Dream Stream flow still a dream except for the crowd. Annual hatch is late and still in play. Fish are packed to the gills with bugs. Fat and happy but still biting.

WATER FLOW:   IN 88.7  CFS    OUT: 93.4 CFS WATER TEMP: 52

TROUT: GOOD: Shore action has been a little slow probably due to the massive amount of bugs available to eat. Boat action has been pretty good overall. Trolling spoons, Rapala’s, Cowbells and crawler all have caught fish. Deep trolling produces bigger fish. Down rigger a must if you want to skate the bottom in 40 to 60 feet of water. Pink has been a productive color as it usually is this time of year. Tas Devils are hot in many different patterns but the hottest is the pink and white Needlefish on a down rigger or lead core. We have lead core trolling rig combos spooled with 100 yards 36lb lead line and leader. Eagle Claw or Shimano starting at $129.95. Money back guarantee. You do what we tell you with the lure we suggest in the place we tell you to go and if you don’t catch a fish and you don’t do damage to the rig we will refund your money. That simple!

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR: Improving daily. No limits but plenty of opportunities. Bite times vary but 11:00AM to Noon has been good. Right before the nasty weather hits has also been a good time. If there is no lightning just wind and rain and you have a sufficient boat hang tight and catch some salmon. Mack’s Kokanee Killer, Wedding Rings, Pee Wee Wiggle Hoochie and Cha Cha Kokanee all have caught fish. Tas Devil #55 and pink and white Needlefish also are good. We have been tipping our hooks with a Gulp Maggot. Areas between Deer and Duck Island and out from North Shore are seeing most action. Fish are suspended and hanging between 20 and 35 feet.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR: For the most part it has been tough. Action has been decent from Howbert Point to Witchers Cove. Bill’s Spinner Baits in white or chartreuse as well as Rapala Husky Jerks or X-Raps have been productive. No really big fish yet most running 20 to 29 inches.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

The wind held down the annual hatch which would show itself at every opportunity of calm conditions. Water temp went up than down as cold weather moved back in yesterday with highs in the 30’s. Brrrrrrr but it was calm.

WATER FLOW:   IN 87.2 CFS    OUT: 92.3 CFS WATER TEMP: 48

MARINA STORE AND LAKE SPECIALISTS: Camping, Fishing, Flies, Lures, Bait, Clothing, Food, Snacks, Drinks, Ice Cream and more.  Stop in and check out our offerings and get the latest fishing information.  We have a great store with great selection of what works.  Support the fishing report... Shop our store here at the lake. Stop in and find out how we can help you catch. Get a topo map. They say information is power. It's also critical to catching fish. The maps have GPS coordinates on them so you just can't miss. We want you to be successful here at the Mile. Get a map we will mark it up with the hot spots.


TROUT: GOOD TO VERY GOOD: We can only imagine how things might be if conditions get nicer. The bite has been strong from shore and boat even though the water is still cold for this time of year and the wind hasn’t stopped blowing. Mostly Cuttbows and occasional Brown’s. Lots and lots of smaller fish in the 13 to 15 inch range with good numbers of bigger fish running 17 to 19 inches. Lunkers over 20 inches are being caught with more frequency. As Taj Mahal sings….”Many fish bite if you’ve got good…..here’s a little tip I would like to relate…..I’m a going fishin, I’m a going fishin…. and my baby’s going fishin too… Stop in for the latest report as things literally change by the day in Spring. If you can’t catch you are doing something wrong and we can help…. but Wal Mart probably can’t. Accurate information is like gold. The small price you pay for something that costs a little more at our store will turn a fishing trip into a successful one. We want and will help you catch fish. All of our staff fish this lake hard and know what’s hot and what’s not.

KOKANEE SALMON:FAIR AND IMPROVING: Schools starting to show up and bite. The fish in top pic is notable both for the quality of the picture making a small fish look bigger and the fact that this young angler caught this nice Koke from shore. Casting into deeper water off the rocks at North Shore with a gold 1/4 OZ Kastmaster the fish hit as the lure dropped. He was quick to set the hook and was successful landing it. Trollers like in pic two are beginning to see success in deeper water in channel areas. Tas Devils, Needlefish, Kastmaster sometimes behind a Dodger or Cowbells working well. Look for schools on the locator and make circles around them if you can. Down rigger or lead core a must from boat but luck and persistence apparently can work from shore too. Go figure.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO IMPROVING: Action picking up on moderate size fish 26 to 30 inches. Howbert Point to points East all along the shore to Witchers Cove has been productive. Stoll Mountain to Rocky Flats in 12 feet of water or less has also seen action. Work the big sticks or big spoons. Can’t say enough about Kastmasters, they are on fire for all species so far this Spring.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. Just like the rest of the State the weather has been wet and cold. Aspen leaves are beginning to pop so that’s a sure sign of Spring even though it has felt like Winter. All Park facilities are open. Weather report looks to be very nice for the Holiday Weekend…we can only hope! Annual hatch is on. Sure to please the fish and the seagulls but not the crowd. They don’t bite it’s just annoying.

WATER FLOW:   IN 88.7  CFS    OUT: 89.1 CFS WATER TEMP: 48

TROUT: GOOD TO FAIR: Lots of action from shore and boat on smaller fish. Bigger ones are being landed if you are patient. Shore anglers have been successful across the spectrum from bait to lures to flies. Rainbow Power Bait and Night crawler/ Mallow combo consistently producing. Fish in above pic caught from shore. Boaters on the troll have kicked butt on Kastmasters. Many different patterns have done well. Rapala, Tasmanian Devils and Krocodiles are second choice. West end more productive than East but more bigger fish hanging on the East end.

KOKANEE SALMON: POOR: Bite has not come on yet but then again it has been very hard to fish the last week as weather just wouldn’t cooperate. Most that have tried just haven’t had enough time on the water.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR: Action improving on moderate size fish. Pitching lures like Tasmanian Devils, Kastmaster and Rapala from shore have seen a decent bite. Boaters working the shallows with large Rapala’s in Perch and Rainbow have done well.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

Although size matters many factors are evaluated.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. Spinney and Eleven Mile open for boating. Looks like Springtime in the Rockies. Proverbial don’t like the weather wait 15 minutes. Great time to visit the Park. Some signs of the annual Spring massive hatch on the horizon. This event makes the fish fat and happy and folks on shore running from the clouds of bugs. The mayfly hatch lasts about 10 days to 2 weeks and looks to be primetime by the Holiday weekend.

NO NO NAME: For many years many of you looked forward to the annual No Name Fishing Tournament hosted by the 11 Mile General Store usually held this weekend. Jim Collins sadly died last year and the tournament was cancelled. The family has subsequently closed the store and with it the annual right of Spring contest. We hear there is a fly fishing tournament this weekend but no one has contacted us with any information nor does the Park have much info beyond there will be a contest. We only know this because we have rented some boats to some anglers in the event. We guess the promoters want to keep it a secret. We’ll find out soon enough.

WATER FLOW:   IN 95.7  CFS    OUT: 88.7  CFS WATER TEMP: 48

TROUT:FAIR TO GOOD:. It looks like the bite is fair for most good for others. Big fish are being caught but a little work and effort may be the best asset in the tackle box.. The old standby Kastmaster has been very productive as well as Tasmanian Devils and Rapala’s. A fair number of anglers report good action pitching a Tas from shore which is interesting since most work it on the troll. Trollers have seen mostly smaller fish with shore anglers seeing the bigger ones. Typical Spring baits are working if you work them. Take ten casts walk ten yards. Like ice fishing a little move never hurts if you are in an inactive area. Look to Howbert, Rocking Chair and North Shore as most consistent. Fish early fish late but by all means fish!

KOKANEE SALMON: No reports of anything substantial.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO POOR: Smaller fish more active bigger ones yet to be seen.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. Spinney and Eleven Mile open for boating. It’s been more Winter than Spring the last few days. Cold, rain and snow, AND more of the same. It’s been hard to get our equipment ready even harder to fish given the last week’s worth of weather. Again it looks to be improving just in time for the weekend. Hurray! All Park facilities open May 15 accept for Witchers Cove boat ramp which opens Memorial Weekend.

TROUT:FAIR: BOAT. Last weekend saw a good crowd but mostly disappointment in the catching side of things. There were a few really nice fish landed but most action was on smaller fish of the stocker variety. Needlefish, Kastmaster, Rapala and Tasmanian Devil were doing well. We just got our Tasmanian stock in with a few new patterns we can’t wait to try. Pic above was caught on a silver and blue spoon. That is a productive pattern here over the years. WE like the Kastmaster in silver blue and they make a rattle Kastmaster that has also been reported as productive. Those pitching tube jigs did OK from time to time on the standard 3 pounders. SHORE: Spawn sacks and Nightcralers have done well. The fly and lure crowd are also doing fair to good walking the shoreline. Howbert to Suckers Cove and North Shore to Corral Cove are worth a visit.

KOKANEE SALMON: NO REPORT

NORTHERN PIKE:POOR: A few small fish. Water is still a little to cold. We have seen just a few in the shallows. We need a few hood weather days.

FISHING REPORT PHOTO CONTEST: New contest to start soon stay tuned for details.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. Ice off. It’s official, Spinney and Eleven Mile open for boating. It’s been more Winter than Spring the last few days. Cold, rain and snow, oh wind too! Looks to be improving. with warmer and nicer conditions on the way. Both North Shore boat ramps are open, Witchers Cove ramp opens Memorial weekend. All fishing access areas are open.

TROUT:FAIR TO GOOD: There were a couple of boats that ventured out only to be blown off the lake. Initial reports are things were slow out there. Eleven Mile is historically a little slow at first ice off. Shallow water is best. Shore angling has been productive. Bite times are sporadic around the weather. We need it to warm up. Rapala’s are great this time of year. We particularly like the jointed variety. J9’s and J7’s work really well here and at Spinney. Spawn sacks from shore are hot. Did you know it is against CPW regulations to make a spawn sack out of eggs from a fish caught in the lake. They have been citing those doing it. We make our sacks out of Pautzke salmon eggs. The nice thing is you can use different flavors of eggs if the regular aren’t working. We have shrimp and garlic flavored eggs that have worked well. Stop in we may have some sacked up for sale or will show you how we do it. Cuttbows like the one in pic above and a few Browns have been showing up.

TROUT:VERY GOOD: Initial reports are good with a lot of action for fish in many categories. Fly, lure or bait seems to work at some point through out the day. Suckers Cove, North Shore and Howbert have seen great action. Pink Power Bait, Nightcrawlers and Salmon Eggs for bait, Kastmaster, Rapala and Thomas Bouyant on the hardware and look to Black and Green Wooly Buggers on the Fly.

SUPPORT THE REPORT: It was a great Winter Season thanks for all your support. Hope to see you for open water and great Summer fishing vibes.
FISHING REPORT PHOTO CONTEST: The Winter contest was great and we are thinking of moving it to a seasonal thing. Stay tuned save those pics.

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. Lake is 96.9% ice capped. Ice thickness running 5 to 17 inches. The ice is soft and candling. The edges are going in many spots but you can still get on the ice particularly on the East end of the lake if you want. Based on today’s observation there will be ice fishing opportunities this weekend. It was 15 degrees this morning. Extreme caution advised. Fresh snow helps identify weak spots. There are limited shore fishing opportunities. The most are at North shore with the little boat ramp cove as we call it open just enough and the shoreline all along the marina area is open. for a moderate cast and expanding. Ice conditions change rapidly and ice can shift. This is when you want to fish for the real big ones. It’s shoreline trophy season now! It’s hard to imagine the lake open for boating before May 1. The latest we have seen it was May 10.

TROUT GOOD:  Action is consistent all over the lake. Cross Creek to Suckers Cove fishing very well but be very careful of ice conditions. Typically things get softer faster there.  Stocker action strong at North Shore but you can see them almost anywhere now as the Winter stocking is rapped up. Large tube jigs, Trout Traps and Krystal Lazers hitting the best, always tipped with something. You can use meal worms, wax worms, salmon eggs, piece of night crawler, even small shrimp to entice on a jig but definitely use something.

KOKANEE SALMON:VERY GOOD: These are eating fish and it's time to eat. This could be one of the last weekends to fill the smoker with the tastiest treat around. SMOKED SALMON! The bite is sporadic with early and late the better times. Jigging machines really help but not required. Work the spoons with one rig and have a small micro jig on the other. Swedish Pimples and Kastmasters have been the most consistent. Some have caught them as far West as Stoll Mountain. It was a great Winter Season and hopes are the bite will move into Spring Trolling. Stop in for latest hot spots.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR TO GOOD: Activity has been picking up. Look to 10 feet of water or less. We are out of Waterdogs but sucker meat has been working on a variety of jigs. Either tip up or dead stick is a good approach but they will be attracted by the flash of a spoon too.

SPECIAL NOTE: 11 Mile Marina is located at the North Shore in Eleven Mile State Park, Lake George Colorado. A CPW Park Pass is required on all vehicles entering the Park.  Any fees for Guide/Outfitter/Rental services do not include Park fees, CO fishing license or gratuities.

RENTAL EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE

CONDITIONS:: Park is open 24/7/365. It' still been Winter no open water. We did not get any snow out of the last big storm so trekking is not so bad. Ice thickness running 17 to 23 inches with four to six inches of snow on that.  It was warm with snow melting yesterday. The drainage into the lake from shoreline areas will effect water clarity in the shallows and it has been bad.  It's  been a great season with the best yet to come. Don't give up now! North Shore hit with massive stocking yesterday and today. Bring the kids have a blast. It's a numbers game. Late season ice fishing edges go first so be careful although everything is very firm right now.

WATER FLOW:   IN 49.9  CFS   OUT: 59.7  CFS   Water Temp: ICE COLD Water clarity poor.

TROUT: GOOD: Crazy stocker action on the north side of the lake. They are spreading around. Many fish in the 17 to 20 inch range showing up. Mostly Cuttbows some Browns. Greens and Pink continue to be good colors. Baits like salmon eggs, Pautzke Firebait and Crawlers also have been producing. Bigger fish spotted in deeper water just below the ice down to 12 feet. It's worth a hike to 30 feet and deeper although there are lots of big fish beginning to show up. Top pic caught on a 11 Mile Marina all Pink Krystal Lazer on the bottom in 13 feet of water.  As the pics show there are huge fish being landed right now. Sandy shoreline areas in 3 to 5 feet of water. Salmon eggs and bait work well on the large spawning fish also but we like big tube jigs in white and green. Now is the time. Don't give up this could be the best ice fishing weekend of the Winter no bullshit!


KOKANEE SALMON: STILL VERY GOOD: The great 2019 bite continues. Some days are better than others just like "fishing". Fish have been very finicky. But when the bite happens its all hands on. Have extra poles ready so as not lose any time while they are in. Don't even waste time getting them off the hook, just get another rig and get back in the game. Changing up is the name of the game when they reject your offerings time and again. Spoons are our favorite but they hit micro jigs too. Try a stinger hook with a four inch leader off your Kastmaster, Krocodile or Swedish Pimple and a size 14 salmon egg hook with just a meal worm on it. They often will come in on the spoon and hit the dangling worm. North Shore and Duck Island are two great areas with North Shore the easiest hike. We did well in only 45 feet of water recently.

NORTHERN PIKE:FAIR: Sometimes you would think these fish middle name is Kokanee as finicky as they have been. They are there but very leery.  Waterdog on a tip up probably your best bet while fishing for Trout. If you are sight fishing stay cool, calm and collected when the big one comes in. We have seen these monsters stare at a bait for 20 minutes or more before inhaling your offering. It can happen if you let it. More often than not people get antsy and twitch their bait only to scare them off. Try 10 feet or less in coves or off weed beds. North Shore is full of stockers and large Pike full of stockers too! We have seen some monsters prowling the marina cove.
