Despite previous sightings, I did not see a single smelt! Normally they are boiling at the boat launch, & they glitter the ends of most docks. Water was still cold at about 47°. I spent the first few ...

Sammamish has been tough lately. A fish here and a fish there. Mostly skinny cutties in the 15"+/- range. Water temp has been cold and fish have generally been sluggish and reluctant to bite. Thats my...

I haven't had much success with winter bass fishing this year. I've been hitting Lake Sawyer lately on my kayak lately because I heard there are smallies in there. I haven't had any success there, s...

Fishing for trout on Lake Sammamish has been a bit hit or miss lately. Usually I hook a couple but it takes several hours to get even that. Today it was equally slow but I did catch two nice cutthroat...

Tried the north end of the lake. Didn’t get much after trying a variety of lures, speeds, depth, dodgers, and bait. Could not find the fish. Got off to a late start which might have been the issue. Ge...

Only my third time out on this lake so my reports not red hot. Fog was thick on the lake. Had to motor out slowly. Started near the weather buoy. Lots of debris out. One pile was probably a Christmas...

I don't get to Sammamish to fish but once every few years, and every time the lake has made me work to figure them out, but that's half of what makes fishing fun! I started the morning out in front...

Fished on both Thursday 10/8 and Friday 10/9 with my 23 yo son. He always catches fish because he uses a dropshot rig with nightcrawlers and a small hook. So he catches perch and sunfish all day, some...

Slept in since it's so dark in the morning. First cast at about 9:15AM. Low clouds but not foggy. Slow catching. Plenty of nibbles from dinks and bait. Look at this little LMB. If I had an aqu...

There were a ton of marks on my fish finder today, but the fishing was a bit tough. I cycled through pretty much everything in my tackle box before finally getting a couple 15" cutthroat in the coole...

I'm a bit conflicted with the rating. Quantity wise, it'll be at least a 4 but quality and pace, I think a 3 is appropriate. I started off at a deep point that I havent fished all year. Working ...
