The wife was out of town on a trip so I invited my younger son along to try and hook him up with some smallmouth on a nice sunny afternoon. Arrived at the Cusick launch around noon and headed out to our usual spot to the left pilings. I toss out my white 3/8oz chatter bait with the 5" curly tail grub towards the middle of the river and wham! I hooked into what I thought was a big smallie, but started to take some line which is unusual so I told my son to get the net, I have something big! As I got it closer to the boat I realized it was a pike! Then my old Pike fishing instincts took over, and when I saw that there was no line in it's mouth (because I didn't have a leader on) and the chatterbait was just in its lip I gave it the double Pike yank to set the hook. After a couple line peeling runs I finally got her to the side of the boat, it was funny watching my son trying to net something bigger than the net! After several attempts to get it netted the hook got stuck in the side of the net which prevented him from getting it in the net so I decided to reach down and gill it to get it in the boat, which of course tore up my hands. I didn't get a measurement or weight but to me she appeared to be about 8-10lbs. While in the boat I did think about fish tacos, but decided to release it due to how rare these are now, and perhaps it may survive another gill netting by the WDFW boys. The rest of our day we did not boat or hook a single smallmouth. I did catch 2 Largemouth about 2-2.5lbs each though. Fishing with my younger son and catching the Pike are a 5 rating for me!

Yep, another post, thought I combine 2 trips into one so this report is for Saturday too. Cold and foggy Saturday morning, fall is definitely in the air! Although we boated quite a few Sat most were on the small side. We tried something different on Saturday while heading back to the launch in the evening, we fished directly around the outer pilings down by Usk and found Largemouth holding in the ones that had heavy foliage around them. The wind blew us off the river before we got a chance to fish them today. We did boat 7 today before having to leave at 1:00. Was great to see Pat Perez up at the launch today, been a few years since we've chatted. With the wife heading back to work tomorrow and my grandson's playing football over in Kent, my fishing weekends from here on out may be limited.

We were at it again up on the mighty PO targeting the smallmouth trying to duplicate what we did last week, but as you know, fishing changes daily! Even though the numbers were close, we only boated 5-6 quality fish. My white chatter bait with the white 5" curly tail grub was totally ineffective so I resorted to the pumpkin seed zoom trick worm Texas rigged with a 1/16oz slip sinker, this is what the Mrs. uses and she was out fishing me! She came prepared this outing with 2 wrist braces, these brutes put up quite the battle as she found out last week when she tweaked one of her wrists. We started out left of the Cusick launch along the pilings and boated 5 there, we met some nice folks that pulled up in a bass boat and shared some information. We then headed down to Usk under the bridge and caught nada, except some wind! Then headed down to the boulders in Dalkena and the sandy shoreline across from Davis and picked up nada, except for a nice lunch! So plan B, up to one of my favorite areas I like to fish during fall and it was money until the wind picked up and made boat control difficult. We even watched a snake eat a frog! You'll have to look close at the pic and see the frog's legs sticking out of it's mouth! Another great outing on the River!

Spent another wonderful day up on the mighty PO. Hard to believe this is only our second trip up here in July and August. We managed to get about 15 good quality fish in the boat with only a couple dinks. Smallies were in open pockets along the weed lines with an occasional Largie busting out of the shade. Best time was 10:00-12:00.

This post is for the whole month of May and first weekend of June. We've caught quite a few Bass during our outings up on the mighty PO, anywhere from 15-25 between the 2 of us on each outing, average was 2-4lbs but nothing over 5lbs, close though. The largies were pretty heavy in all the sloughs and the smallies were hanging out in their usual places along the sandy and rocky areas in the main part of the river. We used mainly plastics, the zoom pumpkin seed trick worm, the zoom 8" grape/black lizard, tubes and white chatterbait with a white curly tail grub trailer. During a couple outings I was casting the lizard on the bank and pulling it off and wam! Really exciting fishing, like frog fishing in the lilies! I included a couple eagle pic's the wife took as we watched one babe mature during the month.

Me and my partner spent the last couple of Sundays launching out of Cusick to get on the fall bite. Both days were very slow as we only boated a few fish. Using senkos, and tubes. We were also throwing cranks and chatterbaits, but was slow at best.
While fishing pilings I threw a 4" senko at a group of 6 pilings right smack in the middle and felt a little bump, I lifted the rod and felt a little wiggle and bam, hookset. Immediately the LMB went around a piling and I had to finesse and muscle him out of the pilings, than my line got hung up on a piling splinter. Keep in mind the water is moving and I' drifting away. My partner grabbed the piling and was able to lip lock the fish and bring it into the boat. 1/2 credit goes to him. Beautiful fish and was released for others to enjoy.
Water temp was at 52 degrees, and the day was gorgeous.

This report is for Sept-Oct. Thought I'd combine our outings into one report. We've spent most of Sept and Oct fishing up on the Mighty PO due to the success we've had catching quality bass. I also owed my younger grandson another trip up there so on a visit over from Seattle up we went, he really loves catching those smallies! Most of the fish caught were in the 1.5-4.2lb range on a variety of plastics and a white chatterbait with a white curly tail grub trailer. Wish we could've boated what the Mrs. had a hold of and fought for about 5 min, and when she says grab the net I know it's a biggin. I've boated allot of her big bass by hand but she said not this one. This smallie made a brief surface slosh and appeared to be well over 6+ then proceeded to take go under the boat in 15 feet of water, she could not bring her up and finally broke off, she was not a happy camper! It didn't break her line but was a great hook bender! We've had occasional hook benders but not like that one! We also enjoyed seeing double bald eagles on one branch, we've seen plenty of bald and golden eagles up there but not doubles. Was great to see the water level up too, it's been quite low and dangerous over the summer.

Had a blast fishing the Pend Oreille River and Loon Lake last weekend with my son. No big fish but great to hang out together. Saw a lot of wildlife, many wild turkey, a lot of deer, a small herd of Elk and a black bear playing on the shore of the river.
The smoke from the wildfires in eastern Wa. made for some spectacular sunrise and sunsets. Even had a lot of ash falling on us Saturday morning on the river.

Went out this morning before the rain started and caught some dinks on jigs and senko. Kept a couple of medium size ones that had bellies full of hellgrammites. Got a nice one on a perch rapala. Saw numerous deer and eagles, including a couple of fawns. Water level is low and dropping, 71 degrees, and severe weed growth.

Spent Sat and Sun up on the PO again, this time with our younger and older grandson's, they wanted to fish with grandma n grandpa before they move over to Seattle next week to Lake Sawyer. We really had to find the fish over the weekend as the sloughs are getting all weeded up and not too many in there. Spent most of the time up past riverbend in the grassy and sandy areas and found a few smallies and Largies. Best fish for the grandson's in the pics.
