Light numbers of chinook were caught 50 to 100 feet down in 120 to 180 feet when trolling glow spoons or green meat rigs and flies. Those heading out deeper caught steelhead and coho when trolling orange spoons 30 to 60 feet down.
Salmon fishing here has been somewhat difficult but catch rates are improving. Try 40 to 100 feet down in 120 to 240 feet of water with orange spoons and green flies. Lake trout were caught by those bouncing cowbells or dodgers off the bottom.
Fishing started out slow this morning. We started out again in 100ft. of water just south of Big Point Sable and trolled about 2 miles past the point north. We had all of our lines in and where ready for action when the big one hit on the center rigger at 80ft. down. The down rigger had a 10” tuxedo spin doctor with a big water tackle moo moo meat rig. The fish ran almost all line out of the reel before the young man could turn him around and pull him in. I noticed why when I saw the beautiful 27# king salmon behind the boat. We continued on north and about a half mile past the point, boated the 15# lake trout on a tin can dodger and chartreuse spin and glow on the bottom. We then boated a nice king salmon and hit another on our turn these biting on a full core with a mini spin doctor in blue bubble color (blue and glow) with a blue and glow Dreamweaver fly. The second one came on a 400’ copper with a blue bubble 8” spin doctor and cold steel meat rig. The south troll was less productive only taking one coho. They had enough fish to eat so we headed in. The fish sure are bigger this year. Maybe a few less, but that fish made me a believer. There definitely getting bigger!
