Fishing Reports - August 20, 2018


This is my favorite time of the year! So many species are fishing well right now.

The smallmouth are looking up eating poppers and also eating streamers. Some of the largest smallmouth of the year are typically caught in the next couple of weeks.

The pike fishing has been very good as well. Poppers are taking some fish and large streamers are always productive. As the water temps continue to fall the big girls will put the feedbag on for the fall months. This is the perfect time to find large female pike.

We have a good number of summer run steelhead in the system and the water temperatures are finally low enough to fish for them. This strain of steelhead is by far the hardest fighting you will ever hook. Did I mention the weather is still warm and we don't have to put the heaters in the boat? These fish are unforgettable!

The king salmon are starting to move into the system as well!
