WENT TO RIFFE AND HAD OUR BEST FISHING HERE SINCE DISCOVERING THIS FINE LAKE. WE PUT IN AT MOSSYROCK PARK AT 7:30 AM THE WEATHER WAS OVERCAST
BUT VERY LITTLE WIND AND THE TEMPERATURE WAS PERFECT FOR FISHING. WE DECIDED TO TROLL ACROSS THE DAM AND THEN EAST ALONG THE NORTH SHORE LINE.
MY WIFE WAS USING THE DOWN RIGGER AND I WAS USING 18 LB. LEADED LINE.
OUR FAVORITE LURE HERE IS A WEDDING RING WITH SALAD SHRIMP AND A WORM ATTACHED. WE TRIED A DIFFERENT APPROACH USING THE DOWN RIGGER - INSTEAD
OF HAVING LAKE TROLLS ON THE LINE WE ATTACHED SOME COW BELLS DIRECTLY TO THE WEIGHT ON THE DOWN RIGGER LEAVING THE FISHING LINE WITH ONLY A WEDDING RING AND BAIT. THIS PROVED TO BE A GREAT WAY TO FIGHT A FISH
JUST YOU AND THE FISH NO LAKE TROLLS TO HINDER THE FIGHT. WE RIGGED UP AND PUT THE LINE ON THE DOWN RIGGER 60 FEET DOWN. IT WASN'T LONG UNTIL MY WIFE HOOKED A FAT AND FEISTY 16" STEELHEAD
SHE FOUGHT IT FOR 5 MINUTES GETTING IT TO THE BOAT ONLY TO HAVE IT TAKE OFF AND DIVE TO THE BOTTOM TAKING LOTS OF LINE WITH IT. WHAT FUN!!!! SHE FINALLY LANDED IT. THEN IT WAS MY TURN I WAS USING LEADED LINE WHICH I RIGGED WITH LAKE TROLLS AND A WEDDING RING. THIS LINE IS COLORED EVERY 10 YARDS SO YOU CAN SE HOW FAR OUT YOU ARE I ALSO USED A 1/2 OUNCE WEIGHT ATTACHED ABOVE THE LAKE TROLL. I PUT THE LINE OUT ABOUT 80 YARDS BUT
I'M NOT SURE HOW DEEP IT WAS. IT WASN'T LONG AFTER MY WIFE'S FISH THAT I HOOKED UP A NICE KOKANEE WHICH DID SOME AERIAL ACROBATICS. EVEN WITH LEADED LINE AND LAKE TROLLS THESE FISH REALLY PUT UP UP A FUN TUSSLE.
ALL IN ALL IT WAS A GREAT DAY OF FISHING. WE ENDED UP WITH ONE LIMIT AND LET THE REST GO. DON'T GET IN THE WAY OF MY WIFE'S POLE WHEN SHE GETS A BITE OR YOU'LL END UP IN THE LAKE. SHE REALLY GETS EXCITED. SO DO I !!!!!
