Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: On Aug. 27, Mike Milburn fished near the boat ramp for 2.5 hours. Using a one-quarter-ounce perch pattern lure, he caught two cutthroats and one tiger trout. Using a dead shiner under a bobber, he caught one cutthroat. On Aug. 23, Tyrel Mills and Joe Christensen trolled close to shore with pop gear and kokanee killers as well as gold Jakes lures. Tyrel caught three salmon with kokanee killers and one trout on the Jakes. His biggest kokanee measured 15 inches. Joe used a rainbow trout-imitating Rapala or a gold spoon to catch four tiger trout that ranged from 14–16 inches. On Aug. 20, Tom Ogden fly-fished in a tube from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. He used fast-sinking line and size 6–8 beadhead soft-hackle flies and beadhead leeches in olive and Canada blood. His catch was 25 percent cutthroats and 75 percent tiger trout. The cutthroats were 13–16 inches long and the tigers were 11–17 inches. Conservation Officer TJ Robertson checked anglers over the weekend, and fishing was fair for those who used dead minnows as bait.
