Sammamish Lake (King County) Fishing Report

Well things didn't go as planned. Yesterday's fishing was much better. Clouds were low. Caught one little rainbow which I let go at the side of the boat. Had three strikes all morning. Fished till 1pm. Same set up as the day before. Nothing. Bite was off. Talked to a few guys at the launch and they did as well as me. Clam dig this weekend, so no Sammamish for me.

Do you know what that adjustment knob is on the front or your reel? It's called drag, you should try adjusting for a change and not losing more than you catch. If you don't know how to maintain your boat maybe you should consider a kayak, nothing to break and we catch just as much if not more.

Barometric pressure is a big factor on Sammamish and yesterday it was off a cliff.

Yeah, I figured. Never looked yesterday at the weather report since I was going either way. Still better than working.

It seems fish do not like when the pressure goes up. However, they adjust when it stays constant. It’s been 30.4 inHg for at least two days. The question is how much time they need to adjust.

No problem, just trying to help out the guys that don't know what they're doing.
