May 5- shoreline fishing is a bit hit or miss- great one day, slow the next. We fished yesterday and had 7 bites, but only landed 2 of them (the bite was very light). There are sporadic kings around, from shore out to 100 fow (suspended). Fortunately, there are plenty of lakers around. They are reliable, and big (average fish is probably 7-10 lbs). We put a decent hurting on them midday Saturday. They were mostly 70-90 fow, but can be out to 130 on any given day. Perch are still around, but will be making their way out to the lake soon.
April 28- the bite is still good on browns near shore. We fished today and it was frankly too muddy- though we did get our fish after some experimenting. Kings have been a big part of the catch the last week, but they weren’t for us today. Guys to the east did them today, but guys did them west a few days ago. The bite had been inside of 25 fow. Still lakers to be had outside of 75 fow as well.
April 18- Still excellent fishing near shore for browns, with a few coho and kings mixed in. Stickbaits are best. Also, plenty of Lakers in 100+ fow to be found. In the bay, good pan fishing and bull heading being done!
April 12- we did very well on browns in 8-15 fow to the west today, before the wind blew. A nicer class of fish today all wanted bayrats off the boards. We kept about half of what we caught
April 7- the ice is gone and the fish are chewing. Excellent nearshore fishing for browns, and offshore fishing for lakers. In the bay, there is food fishing for perch near the points, as well as bullhead nearshore and crappie on the south end near the bridge!
Our shakedown wEnt very well, with many fish released!
Jan 27- there is good ice and ALOT of guys have been out. They are doing well on panfish, pike, etc. the public parking areas are mobbed in the weekend- so be a human being and be considerate (and follow all parking laws!)
Jan 4 2019- Happy new year everyone! Sorry about the lack of reports. The bay is still not froZen. There are perch to be had for boat fisherman. There are steelhead and browns in the streams, taking egg sacks, beads, and flies. It’s best to go a few days after a rain, or after a snow melt, as that brings in fresh fish. All of the streams currently have a decent amount of water.
Oct 1- there are kings being caught off the pier with Cleo’s, and lots in the bay. With the cold weather and rain, I expect that the local tribs will get fired up. The salmon, genesee and oak orchard rivers have had salmon for a few weeks now, and the smaller tribs tend to run a few weeks behind them. All of October should be good for kings, coho and browns, and the steelhead should follow soon after
September 9 2018- after a hard east blow, the lake has flipped, with 46 degree down 25. Despite the ice water, Fishing is decent with staging Kings taking mag glow spoons and meat down 20-40 in 70-90 fow. I think guys did browns near shore as well.
I haven’t been out in a few weeks, but the guys that have been out have done quite well. There are a lot of staging Kings being caught on flasher/fly and spoons, mostly in the 100 fow range give or take 20 feet. Browns are mixed in the shallower water as well. The first batch of stagers should be heading through the piers in the next week or 2, if the cooler weather comes. We will be out this weekend- and will report more then.
