Lake Trout fishing is fair to good fishing in 80 to 100 feet of water. Use dodgers with spin and glows, squid,or flys close to the bottom. Try green, black and white, orange, and yellow colored spoons.
Salmon fishing is good with some nice fish being taken in 80 to 100 feet of water areas, using spoons off the dispeys and downriggers and five, and ten colored lead lines with the Offshore boards. Working 25 to 80 feet down. Halloween, green, orange with glow ladders, and watermelon colors are working best..
Steelhead are being taken on the color lines in the same areas as the salmon. Start in 60 feet of water and work out. Green and glow, orange, and bright colored spoons on five and ten color lead lines with the Offshore Boards are working best. Early morning is the best fishing for right now.
Pike and Bass are still being taken inside the harbor and close to shore on spoons and body baits.
Perch fishing is slow, try South of the harbor by the cemetery using minnows.
Walleye fishing is picking up some, with some being taken North of the harbor at first light in 80 to 100 feet of water on crawler harnesses or small spoons and body baits. Early mornings and late evening.
