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.

First report for me but have been reading reports for a year learning great information on my favorite lakes. My dad and I went on a three day trip on three different lakes and what a trip it was the weather was the best we've ever had fishing was good four kokanee and three dandy rainbow . Seeing my dad have such a great time in the boat is priceless for me . Wish I knew how to post pictures maybe I could get my daughter to help me.

It was an honor yesterday to fish Lake Roosevelt out of Spring Canyon with very good friend and mentor, Dr. Allan T. Scholz, recently retired and famed EWU Fisheries professor influential in establishing the quality fishery occurring in Lake Roosevelt and elsewhere. Also joining was Elliot Kittel, a Lake Roosevelt Fisheries Biologist some day to be famed as well I'm sure as he's very passionate about his profession and doing great things for Lake Roosevelt Fisheries. With these two on board great conversation was equally matched by great fishing. While targeting kokanee we landed 8 beautiful trout of which 5 were wild and released, and easy limits of kokanee approx 14 inches. Well almost easy limits as we started out 0 for 5 which led me to bring out a noodle rod for the light lipped kokes. Pink squid/hootchie was the hot lure for the day fished surface and on down to 22 feet. Interesting, one week its the flies, next apexes, last week it was wee-tads and yesterday squids. Also, usually a very short leader, like 10" or less to entice the kokes but yesterday it was 20" behind sling blades. Met a great guy at the boat launch, "Kalama Jim", for the second time this season who travels all the way from the west side to fish this fishery. What a great guy with zest for life and exuberant attitude. Thanks for your perspectives and pink squid tip.... Look forward to seeing you again Jim.
