Started about 7:30 and my son and I both limited out by 11:00. He caught a couple of nice ones of about 14 - 16 inches and the rest were about a foot. we were just off good old tree #11 using worms with chartreuse power bait.
When I gutted them I could see that this was their steady diet.

Tree 11, where else? Tried using a powerbait color that worked well a couple years back (last time I was there) but nothing, then an elderly cuple motored up and was knocking them dead. All I could see is what looked like yellow powerbait. I had a jar of some corn scented yellow powerbait so gave it a go....my buddy and I limited out within an hour after that. About 30' of water, sinkers 1.5-2 feet up from the bait on a #12 treble hook with the powerbait covering all of the hook including the eye. Decent pan sized rainbows and will be cooking them up tomorrow. Was pretty busy since it was free fishing weekend. Reports from others limiting out appears anything with corn was the trick, another couple was using corn and worms.

After getting skunked on opening day, I was eager to return to Williams Lake for vengeance or dignity. A buddy and I each took one of our daughters with us. We hit the water on a rental motor boat at 6:30 a.m. It was in the 50s and breezy. It warmed up to the low 70s by noon. We trolled for the first several hours with good results. The wedding ring, something like a black wooly bugger that I bought at the bait shop and a black rooster tail netted good results. One of us used lead core line with the wedding ring; the others used spinning gear and simply added weights to bring the spinners/flies down to a good depth We headed down the south edge of the lake, slowing down especially at the hallowed tree #11 and twin pines, where small crowds of boats were gathered in rapt expectation of lunkers lurking in the depths just waiting to be served the right morsel. After lunch, we headed back to tree #11 to still fish on the bottom with red mallows being the favored bait. I also tried white Power Bait to no avail. All in all a great fun day. In total we kept about 10 fish, having thrown back 4 or 5 little guys. We thank God for his provision and for fantastic weather. We will definitely be back.

Took the kids out for a few hours yesterday afternoon. Windy at times but not to bad altogether. We ended up using small drop shots with a #6 hook and a worm. Fished in the back corner away from the resort. We anchored and fished a ledge that ran from 30 feet up to about 9 feet. Casted out and just let it sink to the bottom. All in all the kids caught some nice fish.

Float tubing with flys, 3 of us caught about 40 trout between 06:30 and 10:00 am and took home nice limits each. Biggest was 16", several 13" to 15", and lots of 11" to 12". Good fighters with lots of acrobatics. Hitting Black Wooly Boogers mostly. Beautiful morning with plenty of action.

Parked the motor home at Klink's resort and fished off the dock for an hour or so. Everyone on the dock was using green power bait and usually a scented marshmallow. My grandson caught a rainbow of about 16 inches and maybe a little over 1 pound. He was just below the dock with the sinker on the bottom and the marshmallow keeping the bait about 20" up. The day was chilly and the air temperature about 55 degrees. The resort says that the water temperature is still a little cool for this time of the year.

Another good day at Williams - 6th day this season. Always limit out, generally throw a bunch back that I catch on fly's and spinners - I tend to switch from trolling Buggers, bobber fishing nymphs, throwing roostertails and still fish with just powerbait if the prior methods are not working too well. In previous years I used powerbait and worms, but I don't think it makes any difference having worms.

About 1 in 4-5 fish caught are beautiful 16-19 inch beauties, the rest 12 inch stockers. Grats to WSF&G nice job on increasing fish size. Fishing has slowed a tad since the opener, a few less caught trolling Buggers here and there, but still fishing is still excellent just about any time of day. Still fishing I swore by chartruse power bait, but today they gobbled pale orange. I've tried black, black red, black green, and black yellow buggers - I can't really tell if one is better than another. Although I catch a few with roostertails - use green and pink, I really never spend a lot of time casting - I just don't think it is worth the time - maybe I don't know the places to fish spinners.

Second day this season at Williams. Trolled red/black Wollybugger fairly deep on sinking fly line. Very good action, fish hit it hard, doesn't seem to matter where you troll. Caught 2 bigger fish today, each 17-18 inclhes fat, probably close to 2 lbs each and 3 12 inch planters.

Lots of people on lake today, another lovely May day.

Got on the water at about 3:00 and started throwing power bait and worms which didn't produce. threw some rooster tails on a slow retrieve and started getting hits. We then began to troll green/orange rooster tails and caught 17 fish by the time we pulled out at 8:00
