Saturday, Septemmber 12th- It is a great day to be outside if you enjoy those cooler temps. After months of feeling like we lived in Florida, the cool air is really refreshing.
Yesterday I said fishing inside would be good. Well, apparently that wasn't happening. There were some 3 to 5 footers out there early and only a couple of boats fishing inside. They were lucky to catch a fish. Apparently there is better fishing out in the 300's. If you are into steelhead for most of your action, that would be the place to go.
As far as the kings and browns go, they are catching them off the piers. The water rolled but decided to keep it at 60 in the harbor. I am not sure what is up with inside fishing as mixed reports are too confusing to give you the best info.
It looks like tomorrow's weather is going to kick up some waves and it might be a good day to stay home and watch some cardboard football. Whatever you do, have a great day.
Friday, September 11th - Congratulations to all the derby winners this year. Fishing was tough this year with such warm water up and down the lake. Those big boys just didn't want to come out to play. We had the honor of weighing the $25,000 king salmon two years in a row here at the Boat Doctors in Olcott. Captains Vince & Nick did it again getting their charter guests the trip of a lifetime with this years big winner. I always say they call it Thrillseeker for a reason.
Dave Chilson was doing his daily lake trip and had the pleasure of seeing Tim Anderson's 31.05 king on the scale. He also got to see those awesome high fives they were handing out.
Shawn Pinkham from Sanborn had the first place rainbow at 15.09. He and his dad and uncle did real well in those August tournaments. Congratulations to all the winners.
The fish inside are biting a lot better now than the last few weeks. Cooler water temps are inside and fishing inside 80 is working well. Trollers are using a little bit of everything right now and doing well.
They have been catching browns and kings off the piers and those moonlight casters are out. It's just under 60 degrees outside today and things are starting to look good for the rest of September fishing. September might be our August this year. If you missed out on some great fishing; this might be the time. Have a great day.
