My dad and I have fished American 3 times in the last week. The last two times we have had to put in a lot of work trolling ( pop gear with a cowgirl spinner tipped with a nightcrawler) of the last three days we have caught 2 trout per outing. ( 3+ hours for each fish) Today we didn't catch any!... "Fish species include rainbow trout, and kokanee"

Hit the lake today, first time in a few years for me. Got on the water at 11 after meeting with members of Northwes fishing partners registery for a meet and greet. Had both down riggers down pulling a mix of colors and scents through the day but only picked up 1 trout inbetween the island and VA. Marked some fish up at 15 and some down at 40 but couldn't get any takers. The weather was a bit windy and the occasional monsoon would pass through but since we had a full enclosure and heater it was a nice day on the water with lots of planning for future trips taken care of.

Trolled from 2 to 4:30, 4 lines top to 25 ft, with all the regular stuff and maybe one hit. The line popped out of the clip but no fish. Nice day on the water for the first trip of the year.

Of course, on one of the only dry sunny, albeit cold mornings, I had to work. But not until afternoon, so I met Glen and Cami at the WDFW boat launch at 8am. There were a lot of other people with the same idea.

I had two rods out. One on the downrigger (11-25 feet) and one flat lined with 1/4oz weight.
I may have only had about an hour and half. I had one bite on the flat lined rod that had Wannafish A Lure Pretty in Chartreuse trout with a piece of night crawler attached to a Dick Nite Dodger in Watermelon. That was the only bite/fish.

I left just after 10am. I forgot to get water temperature.
On the video there were very few fish seen.

Hit the lake after dropping the boy at school. Only bites I had were on worm/ wedding ring combo trailing dodger or flash lite and flatlined way back. Tried speeds from .6 to 1.7. Various depths on down rigger, corn and sents. Didn't really mark many fish, but they were smacking bugs on the surface. I'll bring my fly rod next time. Weather was calm and water temp fluctuated between 41-42.

Went out yesterday morning to American lake for some Rainbow fishing. It is still a little early in the year but we wanted to try some trolling with our standard gear. The weather was good, about 45 to 50 degrees, and no wind. We used 27" Lake trolling flashers and wedding ring with night crawler piece. Speed was at 1 knot and fished for 3 hours. We marked almost nothing at the normal spots (Northeast and Northern shoreline). Decided to troll back to the boat launch and head home. Then suddenly we hooked up to a nice one just north of the launch. Had three more great take downs but couldn't keep them hooked. Turned out to be a good morning.

Hit the water about 1130, was calm and sunny. Water temp 39-40. Trolled dick nite dodgers and hoochie combos. Got a few hits, but nothing stuck. I was just flat lining with about 100ft or so of line out. After about an hour the Wind picked up and it got too chilly for the Mrs. so we headed for the launch.

Armed with information gleaned from Glen and Cami who caught on their vacation Thursday and Friday, I started fishing about 8:30am. It was sunny and the high was supposed to be 68. And it got there. The water was 56-57 degrees and there was an algae bloom.

I was told 20 feet on the wire, 1.7 and above for speed at the very northwest part of the lake.
I started trolling just north of Silcox Island. I was going past the houses east of the north launch when I saw the first school on the finder. Turned the boat and went back to see if they would bite but there wasn’t anything. Consequently, I kept going toward the north end of the lake.

I saw some more bait balls…schools, but no bites. Going through some more schools on the fish finder I decided to drop the line with the camera down and see what they were. Later that is, the camera isn’t real time. They were kokanee.
About 10am I finally got one on. I was going 1.83 according to the gps. I hauled that vampire over the side. Looked at the other rod and there was one on it. I hauled it over the side too. Well I only had two bites after that. I left at 12:30.
They were caught on Dick Nite dodgers Pink Splatter and 50/50 with Wannafish A Llure’s Mini Squiddy Thang Pink with a hammered gold blade and the Gilded Lily.
