A few Reports from Capt. Jim

8/15/2011: Fished Thursday PM and Friday. Storms kept us off the lake on Saturday. Went 7 for 8 on Thursday and 17 for 25ish on Friday (lost track of lost fish). All Kings and Steelhead and no lakers. Biggest fish was 21 lbs and two were smaller and released. Fish were biting just about everything including white, green and blue flies on white and glowing paddles/spin doctors and mag spoons. Amazing what less than a week will do for fishing after a slow Big Red Classic. - Capt. Jim

8/20/2011: Fished Saturday PM in rough seas out of the north. Put one in the boat when a junior fisherman started turning green and we decided to pull lines. While pulling lines, out six more in boat for a total of seven kings. All on flies and spoons between 110 and 130 FOW. Green, white and Blue colors were working best. Fished about 55 to 75 feet down on riggers and dipseys 125 to 200 feet out. - Capt. Jim

8/22/2011: Fished Monday PM in calm seas and went 3 for 8 with one fish breaking a line and another biting a fly off. Fished same zone and depths as on 8/20 with the same exact rigging..... Smallest fish was 14 pounds and biggest was just under 19 pounds (on the scale). Two that broke off were nice size also! - Capt. Jim
