Why go to Chelan or Stevens when you can fish Sammamish? Fished Saturday afternoon (3 till dusk) and Sunday morning 7 till 11) Bite seemed to really die about 10:30 Sunday morning. About the time the water skiers and play boaters show up. Mostly had the whole lake to ourselves. Caught 8 nice cutthroats and 20 or 30 Kokanee. Took 4 cuts home, C&R all the rest.

This lake is loaded with fish!! Cuts caught about 60 feet down, Kokanee all over the place, 0-65 feet, about 100 feet back, all in 80 +/- feet of water. Small flasher with red, green or gold wedding ring, worm chunk or power bait, 12-14 inch leader. Trolled east side from launch up to the corner. Didnt see much on the fish finder after we went around the corner.

Sorry no pics. To busy catching fish and way to much trouble on my antique stupid phone.

Today was suppose to be cleaning day, but I heard some WALA peeps were planning on fishing.

So I made it out to the lake a little late today.

Started with the hot swimbait from yesterday. Ouch, nothing for almost 2 hours. Well, I had a few ticks, but felt like perch.

Saw 2 SMB cruising inside weedline in about 4' of water.

I pull up to a new spot. I hear a roaring coming up being me and see it's AMX. He catches a ~2lb on a dock that I just fished with no bites, lol.

I see a bass under a dock, that I spent some time with, but couldn't get it to react. I told AMX where it was too.

I decide to keep changing baits and I toss a tube at the front of a dock. Felt a tick and set the hook but missed. Threw back a worm and DS with nothing. Tossed the tube back there and let it sit for several seconds. Tick and set the hook and fish on, FINALLY! Feels like a decent find and see a flash and not bad SMB.

Into the net it goes. 2.60lbs.

I move out into deeper waters working some pilings with only a few taps from what I assume perch.

Went out even deeper and felt a few light taps, with 1 hookup, but didn't stick longer than 2 seconds.

Moved across lake and started tossing the tube mainly. Tried the regular stuff, but no action at all. Just the tube today.

Landed 3 more with the tube. Lost one halfway to the boat. Had a ~2# come charging out to snatch my lure but missed it and disappeared.

Another beautiful day out on the water.

1st outing in the boat this year. Met SY at launch at a little after 9AM.

Didn't take us long to each catch a fish. Those 10-12".

Really had to work at it.

1st fish on swimbait. Other on jig.

Next fish on DS. Then I lost track,

I downsized and change colors. Caught 2 and broke one off in a very short timeframe. SY had enough and wanted to try that combo too.

I think final tally at 7. Biggest at 2.62 lbs. 3 at about the 1.5lb mark. Rest those 10-12".

Beautiful day out on water.

Grabbed the little Smokercraft Tracer and headed to the lake around 8:00am for some "hydrotherapy" and a Easter fish egg hunt. Pleasantly surprised to see only three other rigs in the lot. Pulled the boat into position to get ready to launch. When I hit the switch to raise the main motor, there was nothing. Thought I forgot to turn on the battery switch and then remembered my little boat doesn’t have one. Did a quick once around to try and find the problem, and realized I had left the fuel gauge switch on last weekend after I refueled the boat. DAMNIT….dead battery!

I was set on being out on the water, and had no desire to head home with my tail tucked after a bone head mistake. I decided to start the kicker and try to charge the battery enough to fire off the main motor. After 10 minutes of a fast idle, I had just enough juice to lower the main into position. Still not enough power to even turn over the main. Figured I was going to be trolling anyway, so might as well enjoy it. I hooked up the easy steer, said screw it and headed out.

Rigged up a squid/dodger combo and started trolling just north of the boat launch. Followed the 60’ line up to the weather buoy without a bump. Switched over to a spoon and worked a figure 8 pattern around the buoy a couple times. Fish were rising all over but no takers. Had enough juice to fire up the main and headed over to the West shore. Changed over to Apex and trolled south. Switched up the offerings again and worked further south. Finally picked up a small & skinny one about 15” long.

Marked plenty of fish in the 22’-26’ depths, but just couldn’t find the right combo. It was a beautiful day with no wind and bright sun. Smoked a couple cigars and enjoyed time relaxing on the water. Talked to the guys in two other boats, and they had no fish. Sure happy that I spent the little bit of money to have a rectifier charging kit included on the kicker upfront. Definitely paid for itself in my mind.

Will be taking the big Hewescraft out next weekend to see if Lake Washington yields anything. Hopefully the weather cooperates & the fish are hungry. Tight lines!

Had a very nice day on the lake today. Hit the water at 9:30 and started by making a typical east run to start off but with no luck. Fished a pass at the weather buoy, no luck. I did however see another guy grab one while I was over there. I moved on quickly though, because I was anxious to get to the North end because of its productivity for me over the passed week.

So I picked up my lines and headed north. It did not disappoint. About 10 minutes in the fish started hitting. And then hitting. And then hitting more! I had 5 in 40 minutes. I made my other runs for a few hours and had a great day all in all CRing 10 cutts/cutbows.

This week the fish I have been getting are higher up in the column than they were last week. Of the 10 I caught, only 2 were deeper down. Not to say you can't have success deeper down, I have just noticed a slight transition in the past several days in my hit counts being fewer when I am deeper.

Fishing yesterday was not too bad. It seems like conditions are improving in general (catching more fish regularly), but still not on fire.

Weather Conditions:
The weather was changing frequently throughout the afternoon; sometimes I was in a T-shirt in the sunshine feeling quite warm, other times I was in two jackets, a fleece and sweats while it was 15mph gusts and light rain. Water temp was down a couple of degrees from this past weekend. Barometer was increasing.

Fishing Narrative:
I hit the lake at approximately 1:30 and began by fishing the east run/weather buoy for an hour. Picked up a cutbow (14") at approximately 18' deep in about 95' of water 300 yds SE of the buoy. Although a friend of mine had been fishing since about 10:30 and had picked up 4 or 5 in that area, I wanted to try the North end runs (I had major success there the friday before).

Picked up my lines and headed to green roof. Almost immediately picked up back to back fish. The first one was about 40' deep and then the second one came while fishing at about 22' deep. Turned the corner and made a different run of mine and got another cutbow about 10 minutes later.

The far north end was not productive for me after about 1.5 hours of fishing, so I decided to head back down to the south end again. The winds really started picking up (15mph gusts).

My last hookup of the day came north of the weather buoy. Had a pretty nice hit and about halfway in the line slacked in the waves and the fish spit the hook.

Final Thoughts:
As I say, wasn't a bad day overall, fishing seems to be trending the right way. I wound up CRing 4 (all average/small at about 13-14") and my buddy CRd 7. He noted that almost all of the fish he caught were before I was on the lake that afternoon.

Tight lines, friends. Happy fishing

Fishing was incredible this past Friday. I listed my hookup times below, but the basic narrative went like this:

I've had most of my success over the past month and a half on the south end of the lake, but it was starting to slow down a little bit. As I got on the water, I decided I would fish the east run first and then pickup and head over to green roof and make my north end runs. 3 minutes into fishing I had my first hookup. I kept going and picked up another one closer to the point as I went through a substantial bait ball.

On the north end, the fishing was consistent the entire day. I finally made my way back to the south end at about 2:30 and decided to leave a line in the water while I began to clean some of my fish. When I was finished I went to reel in my line and, to my surprise, I had a fish on! a nice 17" cut.

Weather conditions did not give an indicator that the lake would fish that well, but I guess that is just how fishing goes.

All in all, a great day. I went 12/14 and had an additional 4 hits that did not result in a hookup. I did not keep a cutthroat under 17" that day.

This morning I had the luxury of waking up at 4:45Am to personal train some clients. The best part is I had a 4 hour gap before my next client so I headed over to Sammamish to see if I could get into some cutts. I had not luck what so ever because I have no Idea what I'm doing out there. My first time fishing it. I did happen to see lots and lots of Kokanee surfacing. In my attempts to hook a cutt, I caught and released about 13 Kokanee. These little guys are putting on some weight for it only being Feburary. I would guess they were about 12-14 inches. Much bigger than the Lake Washington Kokes. I couldn't keep them off my line so I ended up dropping down to 40 -50 feet with no luck. All in all a beautiful morning on the water and the Kokes kept me entertained, that's a W in my books.

Slow day, very light bite. Lost the first one, felt like a 1 1/2 pounder. Darn barbless hooks. One in the boat an hour later at 3.15 lb Smallie, dropshot.
