19 - Spokane Confluence to Lake Roosevelt North End Fishing Report

This not a report from the logbook of the Tin Guppy. Yesterday we were out in my buddies 22 Ft hardtop SeaRunner. Don't get me wrong I really appreciate the Guppy but a 22ft hardtop can really spoil you. Pretty darn deluxe says I. We launched out of Ft. Spokane around 9 and headed up river. Knew it was likely to be a bit slow when we managed to get all 3 lines out before we got one on. After that it was pretty steady but not really hot. Never actually go a true 100% double. By the time we finished with the RB it was too late to head further upstream looking for Walleye and Burbot, maybe next time. We had a really good time out there and I doubt it matters much where you go for Rainbow, we caught most of ours in 50 to 100 FT down around 20, some probably as high as 5 ft. Seemed like a simple reddish/orangish spinner was the hot lure for the day. My purple Kekeda fly saw more use than my Orange K fly and produced a couple of nice fish. Sure seems like they get a little bit bigger each week. We only had one wild fish.
Stay after them, it's the right thing to do.
