Report from Capt. Jim

Tried to fish on Thursday and Friday last week but Mother Nature did not
cooperate. Finally got out on the water Saturday and went 6 for 9 in the AM and
1 for 3 in the PM. All Kings. Water very warm with temperatures close to 70
degrees all the way down to 70 feet. Caught all fish in 180 to 212 FOW on 450
or 300 copper and deep diving dipseys. Ran flies, plugs, bait rigs and spoons
and patterns of green, white blue and chrome with some glow worked best. No
takers on spoons, all hits came on bait, flies and plugs. Hope light east wind
will bring some cold water in down deep! Capt. Jim - The Fishing Poles

Thanks for the updates! I'm a pretty novice fisherman, still trying to learn the ways of salmon fishing and I use your reports as a guide. Thank you again!

Tight lines!

No problem Austin. Thanks for following. I try to put up accurate information from believable sources so that we all can get better.

Send in a report sometime,

Hey thanks for the response wade! I'd love to send in a report, but it might be a bit useless. I've only managed to land one single king this summer. Kind of embarrassing compared to the many fish that are reported on here! Haha, I suppose I'll just have to keep trying and continue reading your reports! Thanks again for the updates and your response!
