I rated today a 5 for 2 reasons: 1. the catching was a lot of fun, and 2. I was able to take out my new Tracker for the first time on the Arm. Now to the fishing. Jim and I launched early out of Porky and headed up river to just below buoy 5; Jim had the first walleye in my boat on his first cast, a nice 18 inch keeper. The first 3 hours was very productive with us drifting jigs and silver blade baits. The jig head color didn't really seem to matter as-long-as you had a grub or worm body that was brown or green like a crawdad. Most of our fish came from less than 20 FOW and the bite was very light. Back eddies and the river channel edge were the keys to our success. The best fish of the day was 6 lb 1 oz beauty that Jim caught near what we call eagle tree, she was released after a couple of pictures. The rest of the 40 eyes were all very happy males looking for a date with one of the big girls. If the spawn hasn't yet started it is imminent. We kept 18 eye all between 16 and 21 inches, most of the rest were 14-15 inches and just a little below my boats slot limit of 16-22 inches. Jim also caught a couple of slimers that were about 16 inches and i caught a nice 3 lb smallie as well. All in all an excellent day on the water.

Hit Roosevelt out of Spring Canyon with a coworker on Saturday. Heard of some kokanee being caught towards the dam out of the boat launch so that is where we headed. Put in the water just a ways past the end of the beaches where the rocks start. One rod with a flicker shad, the other two with double d dodgers, sockeye flies with a couple UV beads and a hammered nickel blade.

First three hits were on the flicker shad, but none of them stuck. Koke rod pops off the downrigger and land a 14" kokanee. Rebait with maggot and homemade firecorn and back down to 20ft. Pops off again and 13" koke in the box. Same drill and another 13" in the box.

Had a long dry spell because I was being dumb and kept trolling towards the dam instead of staying with the fish. Decided to head back to the area we were getting bit and put 5 more in the box, biggest 15", smallest around 12". On one pass, my pole pops off and immediately the fish is screaming drag. Good fighter, made it to the net and had about a 22" rainbow. Bite turned off and we snapped one of the downrigger balls off on a pinnacle so decided to head to Plum Point.

No bites at all around the point so headed over to Swawilla basin. Decided to run flashers and spinners on flatlines, no weight, and a spinner and a nightcrawler with a 1/2oz of lead. Never even got sniffed on the spinner/worm setup but did get two more kokes and two more rainbows near the surface. Trolling speed was 1 - 1.5 mph, could have been more exact but the new Minn Kota was not playing nice. Could only get it to run on 10 on the speed stteing, which was way to fast. Salvaged the remainder of the day using the kicker motor. Anyone had issues with a Terrova I-Pilot bow mount 80lb thrust?

Launched at Ft. Spokane Sat. morning with a stiff wind blowing upriver. Patty and I hit our regular spots and had consistent action. The wind really picked up as the day went on. The trick is to make it work for you and not try to get out of it. We had long drifting patterns, trolling slow death/smile blades. We brought home 12 wallies and released about that many dinks. 25-45 FOW. Nothing big, 14-17 ". Fun day on the water (aren't they all?) Lee

Glenn, Larry and I launched out of Porcupine Bay and fished Laphams, Blue Crick and the Graveyard. We were jigging in 25-35 FOW and caught 33 eyes, 8 smallies, and 2 rainbows for the day. Green jig head and green worm with a chartreuse tail produced best. We kept 25 eyes to eat; Glenn caught a 6, a 5 and two 4s that we released as well as 2 smallies that were close to 4 lbs. We tied numbers wise but he definitely had the best day size wise. Larry added a half dozen, this was his first trip out with us and he didn't do half bad.

Ken joined us today for his first Roosevelt trout/Kokanee outing. We began trolling in front of the Spring Canyon launch heading toward the dam with lines in the water by 7:15. It was a grinder day trying to find some pattern. We never had a hit on crankbaits but pink Kedaka flies saved the day fished 9 inches behind Dodgers/sling blades tipped with red fire corn. Watermelon Apex fished the same way also yielded some fish. We ended up with 10 Kokanee and 3 trout. Nine of the Kokes were between 11-13 inches but Ken's first ever Koke was 19 1/2 inches. No carryover trout. All the fish came off the down riggers between 18-25 feet, speed 1.5-1.8 mph. Most of the fish came closer to the north shore than the south side. We wasted 1 hour briefly trying swawilla with zero results. We headed in at 2:00 pm. It was a fun day on the water and the first time we have ever ended up with more Kokes than trout.

The three of us launched at Ft Spokane around 8:30 and after messing around for an hour or so chasing walleyes we tired of the rain so we switched to trolling for trout so we could stay under cover. 3 hours and 11 very nice healthy fish later we called it a day. Didn't take pics but all that we kept were 17" and up. We let a couple 15" go for another day. Orange was the key !

Started fishing above Keller Ferry at 10:30. It was nice enough the wife wanted to go out and she is glad she did. No rainbows were caught but OH MY were the little Kok's alive today. Just find 40 to 50' feet of water and start marking tons of fish. The pink hootchie was hot, baited with corn. We did end up netting 1 19"er and 3 in the 16" range.
I'm not sure where all these Kok's are coming from but there is a bunch of them and not one that I could tell was clipped. I was told the bio's are trying to figure it out.

With the dropping of the water, shore fishing at Lake Roosevelt was a real adventure. Negotiation of the sand and drop to shore level required some care. Nonetheless, the effort was worth it; Sunday, my Wife and I caught 5 very nice rainbows. They ranged in size from 15" - 18"; very fun on ultrlight spinning gear. Beautiful day with calm water conditions and plenty of sun. Not a lot of shore anglers, but the boats were out in force.

Launched out of Porcupine on Saturday with Glenn and Nathan in Glenn's Lund. We spent most of the day fishing Laphams' and Blue Creek. All of our fish were caught jigging in 30'-40' FOW with a chartreuse jig head and green pumpkin 4 inch worm working the best. The total for the day included 17 walleyes, 5 smallmouth and 2 slimers (rainbows). We kept 16 eyes, all were between 16-21 inches (only 1 dink was thrown back). Glenn caught 1 smallie that was easily 4 lbs. with the rest between 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 lbs. Both rainbows were 15-16 inches.

The Tin-Guppy rides again, but not to much glory. This report actually covers from 3/7-3/11. Long time friend Jim came over from Vancouver and we stayed at Grand Coulee for a much need break from the work a day world. We had great weather and a good time but the catching was very slow. Most of the people we talked to had done better than us but no one seemed to be "knocking them dead". Guess this is where they seperate the real fisherman from those of us that just get lucky now and again. A lot of trolling and a lot of good remembering but it all added up to 10 fish in 4 days. Guess if we we did the right thing we either did it at the wrong time or the wrong place. Thanks to Harly and Charlie we did get our limit down at Rufus on Monday at the launch site. The current and wind were just to tough down at the net pens. Learning, always learning. Fished with friends Wes and Les from their boat on Wednesday and did better, they caught some nice hold overs but it was the one day I got skunked. The fish that I caught were either with an Orange Kekeda or a pink. Caught more with the pink from Spring Canyon and all the fish from Rufus with the orange.
And so it goes.
