Back to Silver Lake for my Friday morning outing. Gave the green wooley bugger with a silver flash smiley blade a try with a dry line that put the fly about a foot under the surface, minimal action. The second pole had a #12 spring green and chartruce wing bobber the silver flash wings in front of a double snell hook rig, 1/8 once egg weight. and the front hook tipped with a night crawler, picked up 2 on this rig losing a third at the boat. Eventually switched to spring green power bait off the bottom, once more the power bait was the ticket. Back to the launch after a couple of hours with a full stringer.

Remember any day fishing is better than working.

Warm windy morning on the lake, have not had much luck with wooley buggers this year, but then I have not been messing around with depth to much either. I have been rigged behind lead line with 2 - 3 colors out. Next week I'll bring the fly pole and get serious with either sinking tip or full float. But all was not a wash today, spring green power bait slow trolled behind the boat................landed 5 hooked into 8. Good morning of fishing I would say...............almost forgot to mention, started the timer on my fish finder after the first hook up, 1 hr. 28 min's later stringer was full and heading for the launch.
Talked with a few guys at the launch, sounds like what ever the method guys are landing fish.

Catch ya next time.

Started the lake season with an outing to Silver Lake. My usual approach is a green wooley bugger rigged behind a silver flash smile blade. Past seasons this would slay the fish, not today. Red wedding ring tipped with a night crawler was the ticket today. Had the boat back on the trailer by 12:30 with a limit of fish in the cooler.

Best of luck out there

As always waited to the week after opening day to drop the boat in the water. Had my usual game plan for blue collar fly fishing with a green wooley bugger rigged behind a smiley blade. Well the trout were not that impressed with it, had a few strikes by not as hot as the past. My buddy Ted was in the front seat and pulling them in with his gang troll and a red dick night. Switched to a red wedding ring and boy howdy was the rainbows impressed. Back at the launch after 3 1/2 hours with both fish chains limited out.

Have a great day out there.

Back in Whatcom county after a fishing trip to the sunny dry east side. Landed a 20" 3 lbs. Rainbow at Sprague Lake. Oops, sorry this is about Silver Lake. Things are slowing down to the regular early morning of evening fishing. My old friend Phil and I hit the lake by 9:30 a.m. with lots of early action on the boy scout launch end of the lake. As always a green woolly bugger behind a silver scale smile blade did the trick. We ended up keeping 8, still the12-14 inch range. Beautiful day on the lake, however it was fairly windy most of the morning.

Was a cold rainy day fishing for the WDFW public fishing area on the north end of the lake. We saw a few fish jumping about 7 to 10 feet off shore but no bites. We were using large night crawlers and pink and orange marshmallow bait with garlic and anise oil.

The last couple of Friday's have been very productive, but then from opening day until early summer I've always had good luck on Silver Lake. As I posted previously, the fine tuning of the blue collar fly fishing has been one of my goals this season. First discovery, bead size has an effect on the spinning of the smile blade. A smaller bead will have a negative effect on the spinning of the blade, I had a few larger beads in the tackle box (sorry I have not measured them) which I rigged up with and the blades spin at the slowest of troll speeds. The lead line experiments continue.
The fishing was consistent with hook ups about every 20 minutes. My Dad came alone so we had our limit in about two hours. Hooked into a 15 inch cut throat, along with the usual 10-13 inch planters.

What a great start to a new lake fishing season. The fish were hitting like crazy on the green wooley buggers with a silver scale smile blade. Had a limit in about an hour and a half. This year I'm experimenting with improving the blue collar fly fishing technique trying to fine tune it to be more productive. It's the little things, blade color, bead size between the fly and the blade, stacking the blades looking somewhat like a modified wedding ring with a fly trailer. The hot spot today seemed to be the mouth of the second creek coming from the boyscout end of the lake. I seemed to have better luck down deep even though there was lots of surface activity. I also saw a fair amount of anglers using a small gang troll tipped with night crawlers. Also very productive, an surprise of surprise, cut throat have made a reappearance.

Started out about 8 A.M. and within 2 hours I had 9 Smallmouth Bass. Not that large maybe 8 to 10 oz. Has to be some big ones because no one fishes for the Bass. Any shallow crank-bait worked fine. I always though this lake had not much more than Trout.
