Lake Trout fishing is on the slow side right now, but should start to pick up. Some have been taken out in 120 to 160 feet of water on the Dodgers and Spin and glows, and medium and large size spoons off the downriggers. Try yellow, green with white, purple and green, and black colors. Try fishing straight out, and North of the harbor.
Salmon fishing is also on the slow side but some are still being caught mixed in with the Lake Trout.
Some Steelhead are being taken out on the color lines in 120 to 160 feet of water, don’t forget to try the new Offshore Tadpoles on with your monofilament lines to get them down deeper when using your Offshore Boards. Use the bright colors for best results.
Perch fishing is slow, you might try South of the harbor by the cemetery in 25 to 50 feet of water with minnows.
Walleye fishing is also on the slow side, try off the North wall early morning and late evening casting small body baits and spoons. Try the green, purple, silver and blue colors. Also try trolling out in the areas where the water starts to clear in 30 to 60 foot of water North of the harbor with crawler harnesses, small spoons and small body baits. Try Gold and green and white colors.
Some nice Bass and Pike are still being taken inside the harbor and close to shore casting small body baits and spoons.
Keep those lines tight,
