Lake Trout fishing is good. Try straight out, and North of the harbor in 80 to 140 feet of water, using the dodgers with spin and glows close to the bottom. Clean spoons off the downriggers, fishing 60 feet down to the bottom is working well. Green and white, yellow with white, or black with glow colors have been working best.
Steelhead fishing is good with some still being taken in the top 65 feet of water. Best places have been straight out or North of the harbor, fish the color lines for best results. Put out some long lines on the boards, bright colors of spoons, small, and regular sizes. Start in 75 feet of water and work out as the sun comes up. Fish from 50 to 70 feet down in 65 to 160 feet of water.
Coho Salmon fishing has been good with some being taken straight out, and North of the harbor working the 80 to 160 foot of water areas using clean spoons off the 10 color lead lines. Clean spoons and body baits off the dipseys, and downriggers fishing 60 foot down to the bottom. Try using blue, green and white, yellow, and black and red with glow colors.
Pike and Bass fishing is still good inside the harbor working the weed beds with small spoons or body baits.
Walleye fishing is slow, try North and South of the harbor working in the 60 to 80 foot of water areas. They are still scattered so keep looking. Clean small spoons, hot n tots, and crawler harnesses will be your best chance.
Try for perch South by the cemetery using minnows.
Keep those lines tight!
