Well, on Saturday too many fish got away so I decided to see if I could put a few of them in the box on Sunday.  I took a solo trip around the same time, 1:30 to 5 in the afternoon.  Again, there was a lot of action, but the bites were light again and I lost several fish and ended 4 for 9 on my 3 rod set up with 2 small kings and 2 steelhead.  Most of this action was around 200 FOW.  Because flies weren't working much on Saturday, I went with 2 riggers down 40 to 60 with 2 sliders and also one full core lead line all with spoons.   The full core with a green dolphin glow was the hottest and went 3 of 4.  I had good action on the sliders too, but couldn't get the fish hooked.  One of them was a half green and half silver pro king that has an orange sticker on the back side.  This spoon's been doing well all year.  So, for this afternoon trip, I'd call it a success, except for the size of the fish.  The best fish was an 8 lb steelhead.  There was a also a lot of fog and small black flies which kept it from being a perfect afternoon.
