Started out bottom fishing near Chief Joseph Dam and was nonproductive. We noticed everyone else was trolling so we did the same. We trolled at 30' - 60'. We caught two at 30' and had 2 more but lost 'em before we gott'em to the boat. At around 10 am the bite was off except for one more near the surface. Unfortunately, he got away before we could land him.
We started around 7:30. The fish finder showed fish at all depths on the south shore. Two to three hours later it seemed the fish were all near the surface. Our fish were 16" - 20" and I didn't notice any big ones being caught. I'll try again another day.
