Spring is coming! I had to see how my favorite lake is coming along, & boy I picked a nice day for it. I caught a long skinny cutthroat just east of the weather bouy at 29ft on a wedding ring & dodger. (First fish of the year!) Unfortunately I didn't get back into em again, & growing restless decided to look for bass. I knew it was a bit early to chuck a ned rig at the docks, but I did it anyway & earned a lil smallmouth for my stubbornness. (First bass of the year!) The smolt should be released soon, & the fish just decimate em! I'll be back for that feeding frenzy soon.

Good report! The last few cuthroat I've caught have been a bit on the skinny side too. Hopefully the warmer weather will improve the feed in the lake. Tight lines.

Those long skinny fish are spawned out. Kept one a long time ago since I didn’t know any better, cut like vanilla pudding and tasted worse. They get released at the side of the boat now.
They’ll fatten back up and cut well soon enough though! Thanks for the report!

Great report! Glad to see that you caught that bass. I love the Ned rig too. I haven't had my first bass this year despite multiple trips. Will keep trying!

The surface was 45° in the middle of the lake in early morning, midday in the shallows got up to 47°. You can actually get great info from the weather bouy. Your favorite search engine should find it for you. It graphs the whole water column!

Hey 2FEETITIS, Did that cutty taste delicious or was it spawned out like suggested by GD39? Sammamish is my home waters. I grew up there. I haven’t fished yet this year to stay away from the spawning.

All fish were released unharmed. I rarely keep fish, but I vowed to eat more bass. Ya know, if we really love salmon we'd keep all those bass & cutthroats to protect the smelt from predation, right?

OMG! Mike Carey! (giddy & starstruck) Thanks Mike! I saw your dog on TV last week, & they are two peas in a pod! You upland hunt too? Let's see some of that on a cast & blast episode! I hope someday to run into you when I'm fishing or hunting!
