Another lake I haven't fished since I was young. I have a picture of me fishing there, bit no actual recollection of doing so. Time to change that!
A somewhat late start, maybe about 9am before I got my lines in the water. I trolled al the way to the west end of the lake, zig-zagging my way as I went looking for fish. As it happens, I found the largest concentration of fish as the very west end. On 1 line I ran and Elgin Fishing God's Tooth Spoon in 50/50 brass/nickel. I played around with shallower depths with this line, and found 7 feet to be money. I caught maybe 15 fish, and I think all but 3 came on this set up, ran straight out of the package on fast action, with about 4-5 feet of leader. On the other line I messed around a lot. Tried a Elgin Fishing God's tooth in a perch pattern rigged up Kokanee style, another 50/50 set up ran kokanee style, and for a bit I put a bit of corn and dipped everything in dipping sauce and did look for some kokes (nada), ran a Woolly Bugger with a 50/50 God's Tooth in front like a spinner blade (got 1 fish) also ran a black f4 flatfish behind some micro pop gear (nada), and ended with a Frog Pattern God's tooth set on fast action, 5 foot leader, no dodger etc. This got my last fish. I also messed around with depth a lot chasing meter marks. The last fish on the frog patter I caught at 6 feet (where the other line had been most of the day) but otherwise I was 6 feet down to 45 feet. Really just messing around with that line. Would have liked to have found some Kokanee, but I honestly put little effort into my search for them.
It was a little windy in the morning, but it calmed down a little later and actually cleared up a bit. The mountains came out and were spectacular. Nice to have a dry non 50mph weekend day to fish! No big fish today, largest was maybe 13-14 inches, other were probably 11-12 inches. I did have 1 fish surface and spit the hook before I even knew it was on, it made a very loud splash and I got just a peak at it out of the corner of my eye. Looked like it might have been a nice fish. Either that or it's just the story I am telling myself :) Oh, and no skinny snake head looking fish. A few could stand a few more meals, but all the fish looked healthy.
Video shows most of the action today.
