Started out about 8 A.M. and within 2 hours I had 9 Smallmouth Bass. Not that large maybe 8 to 10 oz. Has to be some big ones because no one fishes for the Bass. Any shallow crank-bait worked fine. I always though this lake had not much more than Trout.

My son Grant was home for a visit from Los Angeles and really wanted to go fish at Silver Lake. It looks like he is learning the same leasson that many young men before him have. Whatcom County isn't that bad of a place after all.
We had a nice time fishing the boys scout camp end of the lake. We hooked into 11 fish, 3 of which where nice rainbows in the 14 inch range. I do believe the others where perch, averaging around 6 inches long. Most of the fish where caught towards the surface. Nothing was hitting down low, the fish finder showed fish on the bottom, but, they where not interested in Wooley Buggers. We had the best luck trolling a green wooley bugger, rigged blue collar style with a smile blade, (Thanks Uncle Wes) on a spin casting reel instead of sinking fly line with only two small split shots for weight. This would put the fly down only a couple of feet. I didn't think to try rigging up using a dry fly line.

Bottom line a father and son enjoying a nice morning of fishing.

As the season unfolds the fishing takes a little more time. Its a good thing that I have a comfy seat in my boat. Like last week the the fish seemed to hit on a sinking tip line more than any other presentation. Also, a light olive woolly bugger with a quasar flash body rigged behind a smile blade was definately the ticket. I did pick up a number of little guys and even a small pan fish, eventually the fish chain was festooned with five rainbows,...............but it took awhile. It's almost time to start hiking into the mountain lakes a fish for Brook Trout.

Bottom line, didn't get skunked.

Started at 9:30 am from the boy scouts end with a few other boats on the water. I found last week that a green woolly bugger tied with a Matquasdurg Quasar Dubbing (It looks lite oliver with a gold flash) body to really be the fly of choice. This was with a silver scale smile blade in front of the fly on a 6 pound leader. This weeks twist was that the really productive presentation was a slow troll using a sinking tip line. The fish where not interested in the full sink presentation even though the fish finder showed the fish down low. The other challenge was to keep them on the hook. Lost three in a row, I don't use a barbless hook so that wasn't the problem. It turned out that keeping the fish in the water all the way to the boat, putting my pole tip under the surface than playing them into my net which I also put under the surface, solved the problem of losing fish. I had my limit on the fish chain by 1:30, would have been sooner if it wasn't for losings so many.

Bottom line fish on

Had a reasonably successful day up at Silver on Saturday. Made it out on the lake by about 2:30pm. Started trolling to begin with off the north shore boat launch. Three poles in the water. I was using a red Bolo gang with a matching single hook wedding ring, and not two minutes on the water had the first fish in the boat. Nothing to get excited about but was worth keeping. Trolled for a little while longer with no results and switched to still fishing. Gobbed the power bait on the hook and floated it off the bottom. Can't remember the last time I seriously fished with power bait but we gave it a shot. Got a few bites here and there, and my buddy landed two nice sized keepers. Switched back to trolling and tried some different trout lures and ended up with some bright flatfish. I caught one more, and my buddy caught another two along the north western shore, and by about 5:00pm the bite seemed to be over. We fished until about 7:30 (broken rods and twisted line got the best of us I guess), with a total of 6 to the boat, 3 kept, 3 Little ones released, 2 good ones lost, and quite a few bites.
First time I have ever fished Silver on a boat, and has been years since I fished it at all.

Launched from the boys scouts end of the lake with a 2nd part of a little experiment in mind. Some history for the reader, I usually use power bait, floating off the bottom. I tie up on the Western most float in front of the boy scouts swimming area and work the area with great success. From opening until early June, sun or rain I'm usually there most weeks in my little beat up 12 foot boat, I limit out on all outings.
I read Uncle Wes's book for fishing the Western Washington Lakes and decided to try "Blue Collar Flyfishing". Last Friday I trolled with a #8 green and black woolly bugger, with really good success. Found that the area along the boys scouts cabins to be extremely productive. I have the two pole endorsement so the green woolly bugger stayed on one pole and experimented with different colors, depths, on the other. It took some time but eventually I had 5 fish in the boat and went home. In case your wondering, the green woolly bugger, down deep, worked the best.
Sunday afternoons experiment was the introduction of the" Smile Blade". I added a silver blade in front of the already proven green woolly bugger, man what a difference. I started with both poles rigged the same, line weight, leader length, fly size and color, the difference being one had the Smile Blade, one did not. The Blade spinning side caught fish the other did not.
Moral of the story, don't be afraid to try new rigs, even if you have something that works.
Bottom line.................limited out in two hours.

Finished off the fishing season up at Silver Lake positively and got the boats out of the water for the winter. 5 people fishing 2 hours Saturday evening and Sunday mid-day and we all caught one apiece fishing off the bottom with pink and rainbow power bait. My brother also caught a little guy on our way to the spot going top speed on a wet fly, must have been the fastest fish in the lake! 2 eagles and 2 river otters were out enjoying the last of the sunshine.

Hit the water around 830, right before the sun hit the lake and there was a nice fog on the surface. Anchored up in 28 feet of water @ my favorite spot and fished off the bottom with pink/orange (sherbet) powerbait. I caught 2 nice 13" Rainbows, my brother caught 1 and my girlfriend caught a smaller, 8" one which was released healthy, all in about 2.5 hours. Great weather.
