Lake Trout are being taken in 70 to 100 feet of water North and straight out from the harbor. Try using plain spoons off the downriggers and boards. Best colors have been green and red, chartreuse and white, silvers, and black.
Walleye are being taken North of the harbor with some limits being taken on crawler harnesses, small spoons and small body baits. Try Gold, perch, and green with red colors. I would suggest using spoons and body baits trolled fast to cover more ground till you find where they are setting.
Steelhead are being taken in 70 to 120 feet of water using 2, 3, and 5 color lead lines off the boards, or try some spoons off the monofilament line with the Offshore tadpoles and put them off the boards. Bright colors of orange, pink or green are working best.
Salmon fishing is slow but a few pinks and coho are still being taken mixed in while fishing for the Lake Trout and Steelhead.
Perch fishing is slow, you might try South of the harbor by the cemetery in 25 to 50 feet of water with minnows.
Bass and Pike are still being taken inside the harbor and close to shore casting small body baits and spoons.
Keep those lines tight,
