The plan was to have a friendly fish-off between several members. Unfortunately, weather was a little wacky. I wasn't even sure if I was going to fish until that morning. Heard rain overnight and when I looked out the window in the morning, it was still wet, but wasn't raining. Hmmm, decided to go and see who shows up.

Meet up with SammamishYak and AMX at the launch. We waited and chit chat for about 30 more mins , then started fishing.

A bit windy out on the lake. SY and I in my boat. AMX blew past us like we were standing still, lol.

We started off shallow. We were in weedy area. I started off with a spinnerbait. I think SY had a dropshot and went to a senko after a bit.

Noticed a deep spot where we saw some markings, so we backed out into deeper water and worked the DS for a bit. No fish on. A few nibbles, but most likely perch.

We go back across the lake to the other side and I start working a swimbait and DS. SY with the DS, a football jig and maybe a senko.

Found some perch in relatively shallow water, ~10-12'. Memory is a little fuzzy now since it was the other day and I didn't take pictures as we were fishing and wasn't able to write my report until now.

But I'm pretty sure I caught our first bass at that spot with the swimbait that was about 12". Didn't set a length limit, but to us, it's a keeper, LOL.

We moved farther up the lake to another point with rocks. SY and I caught several dinks SMB. Fun catching something after started off very slow. We caught a couple undersized SMB that we tossed into the livewell because well, dinks are better than nothing, LOL.

Moved farther up the lake and stopped off at a weed edge. Nothing. I showed SY my farthole and we hit it for several minutes with no lube.

We're running out of time, I want to say about 1 hr or so. We boated back across the lake and wow it's a bit choppy. Got a bit wet from the waves splashing us. I continued working the swimbait and SY mixing it up. I get a solid strike on the swimbait at boat side. SY nets it and we're stoked. Looked like a 15-16" chunk. Didn't measure and dumped it into the livewell but guessed 1.75-2lb range.

About 30 mins left and I wanted to stop off at a deep hole I found. As we're heading to it, I thought there was time to stop off at a point really quick. I tossed my DS out into ~20' of water and waited for it to get to the bottom. A few seconds later, I just feel weight and set the hook. SY was like, seriously, already? LOL. Gotta love those first cast fish. Another 15-16" close to 2lbs.

We had to fish fast. I think we stayed for about maybe 10 mins and then we went to the deep hole. Fished the deep hole for maybe 5 mins and had to head back for weigh-in. Too bad, saw a couple of markings that I'm sure we could have caught if we could work it a bit more thorough.

Met up with AMX halfway up the lake. And the winner is.... SY and I. AMX does win for variety of fish, he had a LMB. But SY and I took home biggest bag and biggest fish. Biggest fish had a confirmed 2.49lb. The only one we took a pic of. The first SMB I was trying to weight shook the weight hook off and fell into the water, lol. It was right at about 2lbs though.

Fun outing with the guys. Hope to do it again some day. Hopefully in better conditions. That wind was a bit gusty at times.

This might be one of the last remaining boat fishing days for me. Hoping for 1 more this week, but will depend on weather. Started later today than usual. Had to put a few gallons of gas in the boat.

Very light low fog, with heavy cloud cover. Wasn't sure what to do. Water still warm at 65. As I'm trying on a spinnerbait, I see a few markings at 30'. Dropped DS straight down instead. Felt a few light ticks, but no hookup. I move shallower and working the docks and edge with spinnerbait, crank, and swimsuit. Mixed in the DS here and there.

Worked the outside weed edge too.

After a little over 1 hrs, I finally get a small bass, 13" on DS on weed edge.

Kept moving. I get 2 dinks on the DS in 25' of water.

I haven't hit farthole in a while. So I stopped off there and immediately catch a 15-16" smb. Stayed there for another 15 mins to see if anything else would bite. As I'm sitting at the hole, what looked like a nice dark salmon comes shooting out of the water about 20' from me. Startled me, lol. Definitely wasn't carp. Shot out clear out of the water like I use to see when I was fishing the green river.

Now is about noon and the sun is finally starting to break through.

I went farther up the lake and caught another 15-16" smb in 42' of water. Weighed 2.14 lbs. Got a squaw at same spot. Tried to feed an eagle up in the tree, but it didn't come down to take it. Waited for about 10-15 mins and left.

Caught a couple more dandy perch. One of them was spitting out these little 1" minnows.

Very slow overall. As I'm packing up, I decide to start trolling for about 40 mins.
5 strikes, 1fish on. A little 10" trout. Looked like a trout to me.

Got back to launch and bumped into AMX. Thought I saw him fly past me on the water but I wasn't sure, since it was so late in the day, lol.

Wow, traffic sucks in the mornings again. But at least the park is empty. There was only 1 trailer there when I showed up.

51 degrees at the launch. Blue, bright, sunny sky. Water temp showing 64.xx.

I see my gas tank is getting very close to empty. Which is perfect, since it's almost time to winterize and that means less for me to pump out. But in the back of my mind, I am afraid of getting stranded....

I decide to boat to the west side of the lake, thinking since it's been receiving sun, fish might relate to the potentially warmer water.

As I'm pulling up to a point, I see the 35-40' zone light up at the bottom. I suspect they are perch. As I get shallower, I see individual large arches. So I spin around and toss out the DS. I wasn't getting any bites at all at first. After about 15-20 mins of casting out into deeper and shallower water, I finally start feeling a few pecks. Couldn't get a hookup from the small bites. Toss out the tube and didn't get a nibble.

So I start heading into shallower waters to see if I can find anything. Hit a few docks without any action except for a couple of fingerling SMB chasing my line. Was tossing my swimbait and also a lipless. I had this stupid seagull that kept diving at my lure a few times... It'll be near at boat side and that damn bird would swoop down ready to grab my lure. Damn bird was flying rod length around me. After the 4th or 5th time, the bird gave up and flew away to bother someone else.

I move out into deeper water and start following the outside weedline. I finally get a strike and it's on the DS, in 16' of water. It jets towards the surface and digs back down. A couple of headshakes and it pops off. UGH. Was ~14-15" SMB. Oh wells. 1 hour of fishing and I finally hook up, only to lose it. I'm starting to get that bad feeling of a skunk day...

I continue along the weed edge and nothing. So I started motoring out and I noticed a couple of markings at 32'. Turn boat back around and toss the DS around. I'm feeling light pecking. I feel a bit of weight and set the hook. Fish on! But it's not big. I reel it up and see it's a large perch, about 11.5" long. I think my biggest so far.
Was skinny though.

Toss the DS back out there and a few mins later, I get another bite. This one feels like a better fish. Definitely feels like a SMB. I get it up and scoop it into the net. A decent 14-15" SMB.

Toss the DS back out again and a min or 2, I get another bite and this one feels like a better fish! It's digging down and pulling a little bit of drag. Into the net it goes. ~16.5" SMB @ 2.43lbs. Trying to remove the hook and the hook bends. Do not buy the Damiki dropshot hooks. They have a sharp point and penetrate great, but too soft.

Out of my favorite size, so I switched to a larger Gammy.

I thought maybe I was onto something in that area and fished it for another 10-15mins,but all I felt were nips.

I decide to boat across to the east side, while watching my fuel gauge....

I fish another outside weed line and felt a few nips from I assume perch. I move out into deeper water. Ended up in the 30' depth again and I see something on sonar. I'm jigging my DS pretty aggressively now and I get a WHACK! Fish hit it hard. I set the hook and it's fighting pretty well, but doesn't feel like a SMB and feels small. I'm thinking maybe a trout? I get it close to the surface and at first glance, looked like trout, but turned to disappointment when I see it's actually a squawfish! But a nice size one, at 18" and was lively and flopping in the net. The odd thing is this gross looking welt on the bottom area. I helped reduce the population by 1 and tossed it back into the water. I continue fishing that area since I still see some markings down there. 7 mins later, I hear a swoosh and splash. I turn around and see an eagle hauling away what I assume to be my squaw. The eagle banks towards me, almost like saying thanks and I can clearly see it's a squaw. Got this quick shot before it was too far away.

I decided to fish farther north. Stop off at a deep area, 42' of water. I see 2 markings, good sign.

Tossed the DS out. I'm waiting for line to get to the bottom. I'm fighting the wind a little bit now. I reel in the slack and feel weight. Set the hook and YES! Feels like a quality fish. It's staying down and pulling drag, always a good sign.

I get it to surface and see it's hooked in the corner of the mouth and it's a quality fish. I was thinking today would be the day to break my 3# streak..... but nope, streak is still alive. ~18.5" @ 3.30lbs.

Toss the DS back down there and I feel I assume perch playing with my bait, but I manage another SMB @ ~14" and get another 10-11" perch.

I decide to stop off at a deep point for another 15-20mins and no more action. Called it a day.

Meet up with SammamishYak at Sammamish today.

Foggy at the launch and parts of the lake. Lots of fishermen out on the water.

We stopped at a T-dock that I've seen fish in the past. Pulling up to it, saw some markings in deep water, so started DS in deep water first and working our way towards the dock.

Caught me a squaw in the deep water on the DS. SY caught several dinks on the DS as we're moving shallower. We caught several small perch.

We move to a deep point. Nothing there. Going down the shoreline, SY gets a nice chunky SMB ~15". It was digging down and going bonkers. Feisty SMB.

Stopped off at a deep weedline. I finally get a dink SMB. We both get several perch.

I took him exploring further down the lake. Uncharted territory for him, lol. We stopped off at the flooded timber field. I caught 2 really nice perch. Close to 11". SY gets a SMB. We move around in the fields looking for fish. Got me another dink SMB.

We're running out of time, so started heading back up north. Pulled over at the west side and worked some deep docks and points.

We were almost ready to call it done. I make a cast past a dock with the DS. I feel a bite, but fish isn't moving. I lift up and feel the weight. It's just sitting there. So I set the hook and it feels like a nice fish. It comes shooting out of the water and at first glance to me, looked like a LMB. It digs back down and rips a bit of drag. Finally get a decent look at it and see it's a pretty nice SMB instead. Scoop it into the net. A little over 17" and weigh between 2.94-3.06 pounds. Kept fluctuating and flopped back into the net, so called it 3#.

I was just saying how my recent outings, I've caught at least a 3# fish. So far up until this point, nothing but dinks for me.

Anyways, this fish got us pumped up. We went down this stretch of banks hitting the deep docks. SY tosses his DS and he gets one and looks like another quality fish.

My turn to grab the net and scoop it in. Another 15" SMB.

Out of time, he headed in. On my way out, I stopped off at 2 deep spots spending about 10-15mins at each without a fish. Felt a couple of small taps at each one, but didn't stick.


The docks at the park were packed! The parking lot was packed! Saw 2 rangers walking around giving out tickets to vehicles without permits.

Overcast day today. Not sure how the fish would respond. Pull up to my first spot and spotted a few markings in the 25' zone. Started fishing right away there.

Started fishing right at 8:30AM.

2nd cast and land my first fish for the day, just a dink SMB on DS.

Working around and through the point. Caught couple more dinks . I get to the other side of the point and get an ok SMB ~15".

I wanted to try shallow waters, but I see a couple fishing out on their dock. I decide to let them have the area and head towards the flooded timber field on west side of the lake.

As I'm going through the field, I'm watching my sonar. I'm starting to watch and trust my sonar more. On the graph, it's suppose to be a point. I do see something hugging the bottom in 30' of water. Drop DS straight down.
Nothing. Cast it out a little farther and working it to me.

Very light strike. Felt the weight and set the hook. Not bad, another 15" SMB. So far, when they are deep, there's usually more than 1. So I tossed the DS back out. Right when it hit bottom, I felt weight again. Just a dink this time.

Fished the area for about 30 mins before I left.

Decide to stop off at a spot I've had some success in the past briefly. Nothing there today.

Moved farther up the lake and worked the outside weedline at where I got invaded last outing. Caught several dinks.

Went even farther up north and stop off at a deep point. Nothing at the usual spots. As I'm pulling away, I see markings near the bottom at 40'.

So drop the trolling motor back down and pointed my boat into the wind and used the electronic anchor. Casted straight out into the wind first. Nothing.

Casted out towards the rear. I feel a bite and set the hook! Feels like a dink SMB. Get it to the surface and confirm it is. A bass is a bass.

Toss the DS back down there. Now this bite felt like perch. A quick double tap tap. Set the hook and I felt the weight. Sure isn't fighting like a perch, but it doesn't feel big enough. It comes shooting out of the water and oh, it's a decent SMB, LOL. Loosen drag to play gently with it, since I'm in 40' of water and nothing to worry about.

Get it close and scoop it into the net. Not a biggun, but a quality fish. ~18" @ 3.13 lbs.

Released and watched it swim back down to the bottom on sonar. Continued working the area for another 15mins without a bite, so I decided to move farther up north at another flooded timber field.

Started shallow with weightless worms and swimbait. Working my way out into deeper water with crank and DS. Get me a couple of dinks in 25'.

There's almost no boat traffic out on the water today. I stayed out longer than usual because of this. I was packing up and when I saw some markings in 53' depth, I couldnt resist. Turned back around and tossed the DS out there. Caught me 2 dandy perch at just short of 11". I didn't mark a school. They were just a pair. I found that odd, since I usually find them in schools.

Continue packing noticed what I guess would be best described as a hump or plateau in 45' of water. It's a pretty big area. But saw a couple of markings on sonar.

Tossed the DS back out. Several casts into it, I felt weight. Set the hook and it starts fighting, woot! Not a biggun, but feels like a decent fish. I play nice and scoop it into the net. Another 15-16" SMB.

Didn't get anything else, even though I saw a couple more markings.

So I'm heading towards launch when I found something similar on the graph. Pulled up and fished it for about 10 mins without a bite and called it good.

At the launch, there was only 5 trailers at 2PM. Crazy.

Broke one of my rules, of not fishing on weekends. Good weather is going to end soon, so I decided to get as much fishing in as possible before that happens.

Pulled up to a spot where I haven't fished yet this year. As I'm coasting to the spot, I see a couple of marks on sonar in the 30' zone... Couldn't help it. Turned around and toss the DS out.

Fish on, on first cast. Just a dink 10" SMB.
2nd cast, fish on! Then a couple of seconds later, just felt slack.... UHHH. Reeling it up and it feels like I lost my setup. Look at it and it appears my line to line knot failed. Tried a new know, a double Albright. Welp, I know not to use that now.

Retie with my usual uni to uni and make a 3rd cast. Fish on! Another 10" dink.

4th cast and fish on! A 8" dink, lol, getting smaller now.

5th cast and didn't feel anything.

6th cast and fish on! This doesn't feel like a dink, woot! An ok fish at 15".

All these fish were caught in 28-32' of water.


Pounded that area for another 30 mins without any more bass. So I started heading to the original spot. Worked that for 15 mins without a bass.

Started to move farther up the lake. A spot I wanted to fish had 2 boats nearby on both sides, so I just kept going. Stopped off at a spot from the other day working the outside weed line with a dropoff.

10 mins later, I get a quality bite on the DS. It's ripping drag and staying down. Played with it for a while and tires out. Scoop it into the net and it's a 19" SMB @ 4.03 lbs. Woot!

I see a boat pull up nearby as I'm weighing my fish. I don't know if he saw the fish and decided to pull up or what. I quickly release the fish and this guy is now within casting length from me. WTF? My phone rings and it's work calling me too.

So I'm on the spot and I sort of watching this guy as I'm on the phone. I know I don't own the lake, but some common courtesy would be great. Anyways, as I'm on the phone, I see him catch one. He drops his net in the water and it sinks. He grabs his SMB. Looked like a pretty nice one too. Guessing maybe 2.5lbs.

Anyways, I continue fishing in that area working along the edge. He asks me a couple of questions which I did answer. I move on along and he seems to stay in that area for quite a while. Don't know if he was trying to recover his net or if that was "his" spot.

I get another decent 15-16" SMB on the DS. Then a 17" guessing 2.5#.

I putted away to another spot. Decided to go shallow and landed me a 12" right away. Worked that area for about 10 mins until I backed out into deeper water and get another 15"er. It had a buddy chasing it. Tried for about 20 mins around that spot to see if I could find it, but came up empty handed.

Boated farther north to a deep point from the other day. I think the 5th cast there caught me a dink in 20' of water. Drifted a bit and caught me another 15" in a little deeper water.

Lots of boat traffic on the water.

Back on the water on Sammamish. It's been a while.

It's COLD in the mornings now. Vehicle said 48 degrees at the launch. When I dipped my toes into the water to launch, it felt so warm. Rather jump in the water than. LOL. Was showing 68 degrees, no wonder.

Anyways, wasn't sure what to expect, but I hit my usual 1st point. Ran a couple of different depth cranks through there. Then a swimbait. Nothing.

Tried the DS around there and no hookups. I do see baitfish on sonar and felt a few nips here and there.

I backed off into deeper water. I've been watching my sonar as I creep up to a spot and went to about where I saw some fish markings in ~30'. . Started off in ~18' or so. Instantly catch a bait SMB. Back up a little more and I see a single line on sonar on bottom. Drop DS straight down and after several seconds of jiggling, I get a bite and pull up dink ~10" SMB. Small, but they are growing.

Start fan casting the area and landed a dandy perch at almost 11". I'm out in about 25' of water now and casting it around. Landed 2 more dink SMB. One of them was caught in 32' of water. The other was 13" and skinny. It had a profile of a trout to me. Took a pic of this little guy since it looked so odd.

Spent an hr at this area and decided to leave. I start heading up north. Stopped off along the east side on an area that has been productive for me. Fishing in about 10-12' of water. I see bait fish following my swimbait, but can't tell what they are. Too much ripple. Start tossing out the DS around. Get my first decent SMB in about 13' of water on the DS @ 15".

Hammering the spot and get a couple more dinks. I decided to go across and try to west side.

Since the West side is directly in sun, I tried around the docks first and started working my way out a bit deeper. Tried a new crankbait for a while too. Spent about 40mins there and only got perch.

Decided to keep moving up the lake and stop off at another spot on the east side. Tried a couple of deep docks and didn't get anything. It's getting a little bit breezy on the lake now. Not crazy, but definitely have to pay attention. I move myself into deeper water in the 15-16' zone. I want to call it a flat, but I'm not sure that's right. Fishing the outside weed line too. I see baitfish lighting up. They kept harassing my lures. Tossed the DS out into a little bit deeper water and fish on! Oh snaps, I see another fish fighting with it. Can't tell for sure about size, looked to be about same or maybe slightly bigger. Scoop my fish into the net, 16" SMB. Not bad. I toss it back out and follow the edge. Landed 5 more SMB. 2 were dinks, the other were 15-16". The hot depth in this area was 16-18'. All on DS.

I continue north and want to stop off at fart hole. I pull up a little bit behind and work my way towards it. I'm maybe 20 yards away from the actual spot. I toss my DS out into 12' of water and felt a bite. Set the hook and it doesn't feel like a big fish. After about 5 seconds or so, it really came to life and started doing head shakes and pulling some drag.... HMMMM. Play with it for a bit and it starts to shoot up towards the top and jumps out of the water. Yep, a quality SMB. Play with it some more and able to scoop into the net. 19" SMB @ 3.79lbs. Not bad at all I say.

Worked that spot for a bit but nothing else bite. Definitely saw fish on sonar, just wasn't active. Get to fart hole and pounded it without a fish.

It's 12:30PM now. Trying to decided to fish some more or head back in....Lets keep fishing. I wanted to fish a point farther up.

I get there and don't see anything on sonar, but still fished around. It's quite breezy now. Ran my swimbait and cranks first. Pointed the nose of the boat into the wind and tossed the DS in front. Pitched it on the shadow size of a piling and nothing. Wind blows me back a bit, so I pitched it on the sunny side in ~20' of water. Feels like a bite... set the hook and fish on!

It's pulling a little bit of drag, so I know it's a decent fish, but not a biggun. I get it near the surface and wow, I see it has 2 decent size buddies following it around. I tried not to spook them, gingerly played with my fish. As I got it closer to the boat, they swim away and my fish kinda justs slides into the net. Another 16" SMB. I continued the area and 10 mins later, I get another SMB almost same size. Must have been one of the buddies.

I wanted to see if I could get a crank fish today so I tried to cast my new lure out into the wind.... Big mistake. Backlash! BAH! Couldn't get this one untangled. While I was trying to, my line broke on whatever loop it was caught on in the reel. Line starts sliding out of the eyes on the rod. Luckily, managed to grab the end before it came out completely and pulled my lure back in. Didn't want to fix what's remaining on the reel, so set that rod down and was done with it.

Tossed the DS around and I get snagged on something. Broken it off and called it a day, lol.

Saw these 3 guys fishing in a nice blue boat as I was packing up. Drifted right by them since I wasn't paying attention.... I was out in deeper water but that wind..... My bad.

SMB catch was in the double digits. I want to say 13-15. Yes, a few bait-dink SMB in the mix. But had a bunch, to me at least, 15-16" SMB. I want to say 8-9. Those 1 3/4-2lb size. Fun buggers. I stopped taking pics of the cookie cutters. I really should though to keep a better track.

This report is actually for labor day but I kept forgetting to post it so here it goes. Wanted to try out the cutties in Sammamish so I packed the boat and my dad and got on the water by about 8:30. Ran up about 1/2 mile from the launch and started fishing about 40 feet down with a red and green wedding ring behind a small herring flasher. Things started picking up as I approached the famous weather buoy and I started to troll in a figure 8 pattern between the shore and the buoy. Over the course of the next 3 hours or so three kokanee, 2 cutthroats, 1 perch, and 1 very large rainbow ( though I'm hesitant to call it a steelhead) were caught by both my dad and I. All were C&R and with such a great day I'm am sure I'll be coming back to fish this year round.

Decided to start the day off on a point with pilings. As I was sneaking up to the area, I saw my sonar light up at 30'. Marked it quickly and used swimbait and cranks around the point. Then the DS. Got a few swipes and nips from perch. After about not producing any bass there, I started backing up towards where I marked fish.

1st fish was a dandy of a perch on DS. Almost 11". Fan casting around the area and I get a nice bite. Pull up a 14" SMB in 32' of water. Caught a couple more nice perch.

Moving upwards on the lake. Got a 16" SMB to hit the DS in 22' of water. Get me a dink in about 15' in the same area.

Stopped off at farthole. Didn't produce any bass for me today. Caught another nice perch there. Then caught a 16" squawfish on the DS. Pretty sure it's my first squaw on DS. Saw the fish on sonar. Dropped the DS straight down. A couple of jigs and it bites! Misses. Immediately lowered rod and it bites again and fish on! It was one of the more feisty squaws I've caught. Thought it was a large perch. It was even flopping around in the net afterwards. They usually just play dead for me.

Continue up north and caught more dinks and 1 at 13".

Started heading back south and caught more dinks ,a couple 12-13" and some bait size.

One of the smaller fish spit out a sculpin at me.

Protip. Don't wear a black shirt when it's suppose to be hot out.
