Note...Concerning the accuracy of our fishing reports, we rely on the integrity of the Captains and some reliable rec anglers who give us information...thanks to all of them. We are not a commercial site, but in our daily fishing reports we do mention which lures are currently hot...we do not sell lures and do not profit from pushing one particular brand.

While uncommon, attheoak.com does occasionally experience some down time. To ensure our pages are always available, we have mirrored them at www.attheoak.net.

Please Read...In Joe and Shirley's honor we will be continuing to provide reports to the Stake Holder Community who have become regular visitors to the "At The Oak" site fishing report. I hope that I can do at least half as good of a job as Joe and Shirley did at providing valuable and concise information to all the visitors.

Fishing was pretty much the same as Sunday, but with this big blow that started today and is forecast to last till Thursday morning, It will be interesting to see what happens. A strong NW wind puts warm waters on the south shore at the Oak. When this happens we should get cold water on the north shore. So if that truly does happen as I am hoping that should push all of our salmon off the north shore and headed home to stage at the ports they were stocked in. It is mid August and our fish should begin staging for their September spawning run. Here is hopping this blow gets it started.

Sunday, August 11, 2013

The best has been from 27-29, 18-10. The water has remained very stable and the Salmon have been just moving around in this area. Riggers from 60-90 divers 200-220. I hate to say this because every time I do it changes but put down your best and it should work. Gold 42 spinnes, Nukes, and Monties have been working very well and the most popular fly behind them is the A-Tom-Mik Blue Hammer live. Spoons working are silver green glow, silver orange and NBK's.

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

Hot Spots: 50 fow Point to the Glass House, a few Kings mostly Browns from Free Spirit; 27-27.5 strait out Kings and Steelies from Sunrise II; 30-31.5 12-13 Kings and Steelies from Reel Excitement. Colder water inside 46 degrees, 50 foot down; offshore at the 31, 50 degrees 70 down. Hot Spinner Nuke with chartreuse Spin doctor with A-Tom-Mik L200 Blue Hammer Live. Hot Spoons Gold 42, Gold Ghost, Stingray Nuke, Carbon 14.

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

Capt Joel Ruggiero of Baitmaster Charters fishing on Kokomo had a mixed box of Kings and Steelhead, fishing from the 25 to 26 line just west of the point, hot lures were Carbon 14 on the riggers from 70-90, DW green nukes with A-Tom-Mik Hammer flies on divers and 400 copper.

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

25-26 were hot early then the action moved to 28-29. West also was where the best action was. Most of the baits remained the same, DW Mag Gold Ghosts, White green dots, and Gators. Spinners included, Monties with A-Tom-Mik Green UV's, Spin Doctor Green Nukes with Blue Hammers behind them. The temp has moved a little deeper riggers from 70-90 divers from 240-260.

Monday, July 29, 2013

A very eventful day, after fishing waterspouts were the talk of the day on the radio. But as for fishing Buc-A-Roo found some some cooperative kings in 100 FOW. Most of the rest fished from 26-28 and west from 14-18, Kings were everywhere, taking advantage of the large schools of bait at that level. Many kings in the mid to high 20's and even a number low 30's were caught today. Hot Spoons, DW Mag Gold Ghosts, White green dots, and Gators. Spinners included, Monties with A-Tom-Mik Green UV's, Spin Doctor Green Nukes with Blue Hammers behind them.

Saturday, July 27, 2013

An interesting day to say the least, Salmo found the mother load of browns on the inside with a few big kings, Coca-Mo fished of the ladders in 140 and found a good mixed bag of Steelhead, Lakers and a few Kings. The rest of the fleet fished 28-31 from the 16-9, where mature kings and steelhead were the ticket for the day. Riggers were working from 50-80 divers from 160-220. Spoons that worked were White green dots, Gators, Sea-sick Wobbler's and Nukes. Spinnies were e-chip nukes with TG, Sea-sick Wobbler's with Spookes, Monties and e-chip green green dots.

Friday, July 26, 2013

A lot of cold water inside with bait but very few fish. Sunrise II had a very good early bite in 150 but it ended quickly. Most of the fish taken today were from the 27-29 lines west to the 18. Riggers from 55-80 divers from 160-220. King's, Coho and Steelhead are the the bulk of the catches. Hot baits DW Gators, Carbon 14's, and Silver green glows, Gold 42 spin-doctors and Monties.

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Well up until today there was fish from 26-31 in pockets that were moving. You would be on them for a while then they would disappear and you would have to search out another group of fish. That has been the mode of operation lately, very dynamic conditions. Well today was very dynamic as no one made it out due to he strong NW winds pushing to 30 knot gusts. Tomorrow we will be staring all over again,will key you in then.

Saturday, July 20, 2013

Rough day, wind from the west to 30 mph. The fish were snapping hard both Kings and Steelies at the 28 Line but it got so bad that trolling became almost impossible. Some went in and some moved closer to shore where it was fish-able. Fish were being taken at the 130 level and west early but by the end of the day the temp was 77 degrees down 120 feet. So we start all over tomorrow and figure them out again.

Friday, July 19, 2013

The bite continues to be mainly from the 25-28 east and west. A good mix of Kings and steelhead are still available. Hot baits continue to be, DW Silver green glow tip, Tommy Spoons, Gold and Silver 42 spoons, Gold and Silver 42 spin doctors with A-Tom-Mik matching flies, Monties with A-Tom-Mik pro/am flies along with Green Nuke Spin Doctors with blue hammer and hammer lives. Riggers from 50-80 and divers from 180-250.

Sunday, July 14, 2013

Great weekend a lot of boats out and from what I heard all did very well. Fish were caught from the 26-34 east and west. A good mix of Kings and steelhead were available. Hot baits included, DW Silver green glow tip, Tommy Spoons, Gold and Silver 42 spoons, Gold and Silver 42 spin doctors with A-Tom-Mik matching flies along with Green Nuke Spin Doctors with blue hammer and hammer lives. Riggers from 50-90 and divers from 180-250.

thurday, July 11, 2013

Did not fish today but the info I received was the northwest wind pushed in warm water. The bite moved out to the 27-29 lines with a lot of the same baits still working.

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Fishing remains very good, with the best being from 24-26 out front and east. Big steelhead and more mature Kings showing up daily with many in the mid to upper 20's being reported. Hot baits include DW Sliver Green Glow Tip, Tommy Spoons, Purple Thunders and Gold 42's. Riggers any where from 40-70 with sliders continue to work. Best diver set ups were Gold 42's with the A-Tom-Mik Gold 42 fly at 180-200, and White black dots with the A-Tom-Mik Steven's Shred same sets.

Saturday, July 6, 2013

Just got home from the cottage and fished the last 3 days. Fishing is very good with more kings showing up every day and steelhead everywhere from the 24-29 line. We fished the 25.5 today a little east but boats were spread out from 100 fow to the 28 and from Johnson's to the glass house. Hot baits DW Steelie Canes, Sliver Green Glow Tip, Tommy Spoons and Gold 42's. Riggers any where from 20-50 with sliders were all working. Our best diver set up were Gold 42's with the A-Tom-Mik Gold 42 fly at 200 which took several kings.

Monday, July 3, 2013

Have not fished the past 3 days but this is from Sunrise II for today, fishing from 26.5-27.5 divers at 110 Twinkie Green, sliders on the 20, 35 and 55 riggers with NBK's and gold 42's and on the 5 color with a DW SS get r' done.

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Sunrise II had a repeat of yesterday fished 100-120 in front of the ladders and took some kings early then more of a mixed bag later in the day; Twinkie Green and the Cow with the A-Tom-Mik Steven's Shred fly at 140-160. We started in 120 and fished strait north picking all the way on mostly steelies and some smaller kings. But when we got to the 28 line we found the bigger kings, not a lot of them there but when you got one it was worth the wait. Most of the same setups from yesterday, DW gold 42'spoons and Spin doctors. Mag Ghosts on both the 400 copper and center rigger down 75 took kings.

Saturday, June 29, 2013

The rain finally stopped, and from what I heard and saw the bite didn't, Buc-A-Roo and Intimidator appeared to be doing Browns in 40 foot from the ladders to the flats. Others were on kings in 90-110 both east and west. Sunrise II fished 100-120 in front of the ladders and took good kings early then more of a mixed bag later in the day; Twinkie Green and the Cow with the A-Tom-Mik Steven's Shred fly at 140-160 were his best. We fished at the same depth in front of the pump house early and were disappointed when my charter lost our first three kings. But the guys got it together and managed to boat a good box by the end of the day including a 29lb female. Divers at 140 and 160 with Gold 42 spinnies, riggers at 50, 60 and 70 with gold 42 spoons, purple thunders and black gold purple glow's, were taking both kings and Steelhead.

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Today was about the same as yesterday but our box had half kings and half steelies. We found steelies and 2/3 year old's at the same spot as yesterday 160-170 about 7 miles east of port. But we did move north later in the day and found a few big guys at 350. Still mostly a spoon bite.

Wednesday , June 26, 2013

The water has gotten warmer and it looks like most of the Lakers have vacated the area. I only saw 2 other boats out today besides us. We found our fish east from the big flats to the little flats and caught mostly Steelhead with a couple kings a brown and 1 Laker mixed in. 160 fow seemed the best. We marked far more than we caught but did get our box. Riggers at 70, 80 and 85 with sliders and a 400 copper. We did not get one diver bite despite actively changing and moving them through out the water column. Best baits DW Trackers black magic & DW grape pickers on out and downs. Mag gold ghosts on the the center rigger and 400 copper. Back out again tomorrow here is hoping more kings show up. Also we did mark a lot of bait.

Sunday, June 23, 2013

The last two days has been lake trout everywhere. But if you worked hard enough in these waters you were able to pull a few salmon and steelhead out of the mix. Most fished east from the flats to Bald Eagle, 80-110 FOW, the captains I was in touch with were able to pull 2-3 kings out of the mix, The small dog (White/black dot Spindoctor) with A-Tom-Mik purple mirage glow was working for kings and steels at 140 and 160, The DW Tommy Spoon and Sea Sick Waddler took a few down in the 50-55 range on the riggers. The lake is setting up nice with bait and good temps more kings should be heading our way soon.

Friday, June 21, 2013

Tough bite; charters out Sunrise II, Pisces, Reel Excitement, and Wharf Rat. Most fished East and West 90-200, Marked a lot of fish but they were very uncooperative as far as the bite. Pisces had Elmer contribute with some work today taking a few Lakers, the small dog (White Black Dots) with purple mirage behind it at 200-220 on the divers took a few along with the mag white green dot spoon at 70-75 on the riggers.

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Not a stellar day by no means, unexpectedly we headed out into the lake with a stiff NE wind in our faces. The only charters I heard out were us, Pieces and Buc-A-Roo. We all fished early in 80-100 heading east to the flats. Very little action to speak of. When I last saw Buc-A-Roo he was heading north, I talked to Pieces about 10AM and he said he had a few kings and was staying inshore, I ended up wandering west and found some bait and a few active fish from the pump house to Johnson's, took a few kings and a coho and lost a few more. Fished 70-80 fow, 40-70 down, all rigger bites; DW Trackers Black Magic and Purple Frogs took most of the bites. No Diver or spinney bites. Lets hope for good weather to help straiten the lake out.

Sunday, June 16, 2013

So we are ready to go, I was in Wilson for the whole month of May till June 2nd then the Orleans Pro/Am and the Tight Lines Tourney in Canada so since I was not fishing "at the Oak" I had very little information to share. Just got back yesterday and did some scouting today. Along with Capt. Bob from "Sunrise II" I can get you some info. I will be back to posting as often as I can.

A lot of bait with fish 80-120 wall to the glass house riggers 50-80 with White/Green dot mag spoons, Mag Gold 42's and Black Magics were all taking fish the divers with spinnies were fairly quite, it was definitely a spoon bite. Kings of all sizes, with Lakers and Coho's mixed in it was 60 on the surface and 49 down 80. If nothing goes wrong weather wise over the next few days I would say we will be in for a good week of fishing.

Sunday, May 5, 2013

Info from the Fishing Bitches, they found steelhead on the 29 line strait out from the Oak. Hot colors off the boards and riggers from 30 up to 10.

Saturday, May 4, 2013

Sorry I have not posted lately but I was out of the country last weekend had to visit my Dad early last week, then we received our pen salmon on Wednesday and then I was fishing up west and did not get home early enough to get info from the guys "At the Oak". So here we go with what I have. The word is the daily east wind has pushed in clear water and the only fish available are Lake trout but here are a lot of them, I have heard of large numbers of them being caught any where from 70-150 FOW east and west. As for Kings and browns I have heard very little success targeting these species.

Monday, April 22, 2013

The last 2 days have been great; plenty of browns east and west with good water all along the shore line. Sunday the best board baits were fire tigers; today Black and silver rap's both J9 and straits and cotton Cordell's. The best rigger bait continues to be the DW SS Mixed Veggies UV. There is also Lakers out in 60-70 on the bottom out front and an occasional king in 100 down 50-60. But the brown fishing is the best bet right now.

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Only one thing to say; will someone stop the wind. Buc-A-Roo, Rally Killer and I all had trips today and spent the day at the dock. Buc-A-Roo tried to fish when it calmed down a little at about 8:00 and caught a nice Coho on the set up but was soon forced off the lake by the increasing winds. Tomorrow looks like we will fish but the water conditions and color look iffy.

Pen Rearing update due to some issues the Steelhead were all stocked directly into the river and we are still waiting for word on the delivery of the Salmon.

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Been off all week heading out tomorrow. We hope!!!

Sunday, April 14, 2013

We started further west at Johnson's and went further west during the course of the day to just past Shadagee. Had a good pic all morning mostly browns. The water was mud in close but we were able to find a good edge at times in 11-13 Fow. All Browns with some nice ones over 10 along with our first king. Fire tigers off the boards in Thunder stick JR"S and Renowski's the same spoon as yesterday off the riggers, the DW SS Mixed Veggies UV 5 down 50 back.

Saturday, April 13, 2013

It started for me today, we made it out after the terrible blow we had yesterday. We went west and Buc-a-roo went east. It started slow for both of us, cold water and allot of mud. The last time I talked to them they had started to pick up some bites by the flats. We trolled for 3 hours before we got our first bite; Us and the "Fishing Bitch" boys found a little spot just past Green Harbor that had some good water and held fish. We picked all browns but the "Bitch" boys had a nice king on they lost 10 feet from the boat. Its tough to get them in with the small hooks on a stick bait. Our best was on the riggers the DW SS Mixed Veggies UV was the trick 5 down 50 back. We also had some board bites with hot Orange colored stick baits.

Friday, April 12, 2013

I would like to thank everyone for showing up and helping put the pens together last Saturday I under stand it was a beautiful day to get it done. I would especially like to thank Mark Lewis (Devonian) for his help in coordinating the event in my absence he did a great job. I will be sending out the fish delivery dates as soon as they are firmed up.

Thanks again for everyone's support for the project.

Now let's go get some browns. I have hear through the rumor mill that a 24lber was caught off the Oak Last weekend. Now that's a nice fish.

Salmon continue to move in and stage for their run up the Oak. Fish are from the wall to the flats in large numbers. hot baits are white with black dots and green dots with A-Tom-Mik Pro/Am Glows, Jean Sleeps and Crinkle Green Lives behind them. Riggers from 60-100 divers from 180-260.

The winners of this years Johnny V Tournament of three best fish were. First place Pisces, second Reel Excitement and third U-Betcha

Monday, August 27, 2012

Cold water continues to be the main effect on the inside water with some salmon still being taken in the 40-50 foot range but it is not the bonanza we had at this time last week. Offshore has been producing good numbers of steelhead with mixed year class kings any where from the 30-35 lines strait out.

Friday, August 24, 2012

The last 2 days have been a replica of Wednesday.

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Hate to sound like memorx tape but when it comes to salmon fishing I guess that it can be good. Today was just like yesterday with more big kings moving in.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

The inside water has stabilize with good temperature and the mature kings are moving in for their final staging before their run up the river. Hot baits are Spin doctor white green dot and black dots with A-Tom-Mik Pro/Am glow shreds, Crinkle green lives and Jean sleeps behind them. Divers from 120-140 riggers from 60-70 over 70-100 fow from the wall to the glass house.

Monday, August 20, 2012

The inside water has started to stabilize with good temperature and the mature kings are moving in for their final staging before their run up the river. Hot baits are Spin doctor white green dot and black dots with A-Tom-Mik Pro/Am glow shreds, Crinkle green lives and Jean sleeps behind them. Divers from 160-200 riggers from 60-80 over 80-100 fow from the wall to the glass house.

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Heard there was a brown bite in 60-80 with some salmon mixed in but little else about it. The bite got started a little earlier finally. The best was 28-29 line the bait was still very heavy but when you got north of it things started happening. Hot baits are White and Silver Spin-doctor green dots with A-Tom-Mik green crinkle lives, Silver 42/42's and Green Gator/Gators. Spoons include DW gators and Mag Gators, Orange crushes and Streak 42 second spoons . Riggers from 60-90 divers from 140-260. There still is a lot of good water out there.

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

It has been a late bite most of last 5 days. There is fish from 140 fow to the 29 line along with more schools of bait than we have ever seen. The best bite has been after 9:00 o'clock. Hot baits are White and Silver Spin-doctor green dots with A-Tom-Mik green crinkle lives, Gold 42/42's, Big white paddles with meat have taken their fair share. Twinkie green, Goldilocks and White black dot Revelator's are also working well with A-Tom-Mik Jean Sleeps behind them. Spoons include DW gators, Orange crushes and Streak 42 second spoons. Riggers from 60-90 divers from 120-260. There is a lot of good water out there we are marking fish from 60-120 along with the bait.

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Been on vacation for the last 3 days will update you tomorrow.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Sorry stayed at the cottage for a few days was away from my computer. Fish at 140, fish at 25-26 line fish from 30-33. At times this season there has been a lot of good water with fish spread through out it. I have never seen the water so green in the lake. Hot baits continue to be DW gold 42 mags, DR. K's, Gold 42's, Stingray Ghosts, Spin Doctor with A-Tom-Mik Gator/Gator's, 42/42 golds, Death Wish with utra purple glows, Silver green Dots with Crush Icicles. Rigger's from 60-110 divers from 200-280.

Sunday, August 5, 2012

As predicted the rain came and the winds blew, by noon it was 4-6's at the 26. The early bite at the 26 was smoking, rigger's with DW Mag Gold 42's down 85, Stingray Circus Freaks at 55 and 65 did their fair share of the work along with Spin-Doctor Death Wishes and A-Tom-Mik Ultra Purple Glows at 180 and Gold 42/42's at 200 on the divers. The was also an on fire bite for browns in 50 FOW, DW Gold 42 mags, DW Gold 42's and Stingray Green Nukes.

Friday, August 3, 2012

There was a good brown bite in 60 to 65 fow but I did not find out what baits were working. There were also fish scattered from the 26 line all the way to the 31 and from the 8 to the 16. A lot of 3 year old's with some matures mixed in, along with good steelhead. Riggers were working from 50-100 divers from 120-240. Hot spoons were DW gold 42 mags and Dr. K's and Stinger ghost's and purple clowns. Spinners were gold 42/42's, Death wish's with A-Tom-Mik ultra purple glows and Spin-doctor white on whites with A-Tom-Mik Pro/Am glows.

Thursday, August 2, 2012

I wish I had allot of changes to report but the only difference we have been seeing is where the fish are. Today they were from 26-27 and the baits and lure depths have remained the same as the last week.

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

The fish have been from the 28 to the 32 the last few days, lots of big kings to go around for everyone. I don't want to cut it short but the baits have been pretty must the same since Sunday.

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Sorry again but I have been very busy this weekend between fishing every day and selling my 31, plus getting it cleaned up for the new owner. I have had little time for much else. But here is the weekend rap up. There had been fish from the 24 to the 33 but in the end it is now a typical mid summer off shore bite with Steelhead and immature salmon at the 28-30 and mature kings from 31-33. Riggers from 60-80 with DW DR. K's and Gold 42's along with Stingray ghosts. Divers from 180 to 220 with Spin-doctor death wishes and A-Tom-Mik Miage glow's and Ultra purple glows along with gold 42/42's early and Gator/Gators and Silver green dots with Gator flies later in the morning.

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Sorry I am late but it was a very busy day for me today. Most fished from the 23.5-25 fishing was a little slower than the past few days but we all did manage to get our fish. Mostly a mix of kings and steelhead. Riggers from 50-90 Divers from 180-220. Hot Spoons DW Dr. K's and Stingray Purple clowns, hot spinners Death-wish spin-doctors with A-Tom-Mik Ultra Glow Purples. I was a cloudy day so purple seemed to be the color of the day.

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Each day can be such a change, it was rough but with a forecast of the seas calming a number of boats headed out. The inside report was not as good as yesterday the best bite seemed to be between 24-26 north and 9-17 west. Most boats stopped there because it was just north of a break and the water got ruff at that level so venturing to the 29 line did not look like an option. Well the word was it panned out for most. A very good king bite with a few steelhead mixed in for good measure and as the morning went on it did calm enough for good troll both east and west. Riggers were hot with DW Dr K's at 50 and 60 and Stinger Mag Gold Ghosts at 70. Divers went early with Gold 42/42's at 260 then 220 later, Death-wish Spin-doctors with A-Tom-Mik Stevens flies at 180 and later Gator/Gator's at the same spot.

Monday, July 23, 2012

I received a number of good reports. A few Captains took a chance and fished the cold water inside 57 degrees on the surface and were rewarded for their efforts with some big kings in 40-50 fow. Others choose to work the break at the 26 line and also found some cooperative fish and still others went to the most stable water 29 and deeper and found mature kings at that level. The only issue we have right now is where are all the steelhead that were around before the big blow last week. A few are being caught but not like it was previously, kings seem to be the order of the day which is not a bad thing but a few good steelhead do bring a little excitement to the day. We fished the 30-31 line and the best info I have is from there. Divers at 260 with Spin-doctor Green Gators with A-Tom-Mik Gators(L202's) and Green Hammers, Silver green dots with the same fly, along with DW Silver 42 second spoons and Stingray Ghosts at 60, 70 and 80 on the riggers.

Saturday, July 21, 2012

A crazy day the warm water was rushing back in as fast as you can imagine, if you were on fish it did not last long because when you went back to that spot every thing had changed. the most consistent was 29 and north where the water was the most stable. Riggers from 45-80, divers from 180 to 240. Hot spoons were Sting Ray Ghosts, DW Yellow gators and Spin-doctor 72 Monties and Silver Green dots along with Revelator Twinke greens.

Friday, July 20, 2012

Nobody fished yesterday and I doubt anyone is out today with NE winds gusting to 25 at the buoy and wave heights of 5 feet (which we believe is actually 10 from crest to through). That being said I would not be surprised if when we do get out hopefully tomorrow that we find some cold, clear water on the inside and maybe even fog. The best thing to do then is go north till the water begins to warm, but please be safe if you don't have radar to get through the fog safely and a boat properly outfitted for offshore fishing wait for a better day to take advantage of our great salmon fishery.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

The Strong SW wind made it very difficult to fish any where but 150 fow and under though to our surprise the temp was 50 degrees 80 down over 100 fow. Most caught kings of all year classes lure selection, rigger and diver depths remained pretty constant as it has the past few days. I did hear that if you went to the 25 line it did get fairly sporty with waves up to 6-7.

Monday, July 16, 2012

The inside bite was slower today from the info I received, thought there were still some big kings taken there. The best bite for numbers of fish seemed to be from the 26-27 line, 10-18. DW Mag gators on 400 coppers and the deep rigger, along with Dr K's and Rodny's on the higher ones any where from 40-70. Diver's with Spin-Doctor Silver green dots and A-Tom-Mik Pro/Am Glow Shreds toke a number of fish out 180 and 200.

Sunday, July 15, 2012

The only difference between yesterday and today is that the kings moved in to 120-125. Besides that it was a carbon copy of yesterday.

Saturday, July 14, 2012

The kings moved out a little today the best was in 140-150 east and west, hot baits were Gold 42/42's early and spin-doctor White Green dots and Silver Green dots later with a number of different flies behind them which seemed to be the ticket on the divers at 160-200. Riggers with DW Dr K's and Stinger Ghosts from 50-70 were also working well. There was a good mixed bite of Steelhead and kings at the 27 line for those who wanted venture off shore a little to get away from the traffic.

All I can say is this, fishing is very good; Kings in 70 to 300 with steelhead past 200. I have talked to a number of Captains and Rec's and its run your favorite baits and have fun. Good Luck everyone

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Fishing remains very good Kings and Steelhead are still the main catch. Gold 42/42's are still working very well at 180 and 200 on the divers, along with the 72 Monty's and Twinkie green. DW Mag Gators on 400 coppers and the deep rigger at 70 are taking some big kings along with Stinger Stingray Ghosts. DW Kevorkian's are filling out the set at 50 and 60.

Sunday, July 8, 2012

Today had a great start, big kings on divers were doing well at 180 and 200 for the first few hours. Gold 42/42's seemed to be the best but twinkie green did its fair share of damage. Then it slowed for a little while and then picked back up with DW Mag gators on 400 coppers and the deep rigger at 75-80 taking their some big kings along with Stinger Stingray purple clowns at 50 and 60 working well for Steelhead and Salmon.

Today's report is and exact duplicate of yesterdays. Fishing is very good!!!

Friday, July 6, 2012

The fishing is very good right now with the 25 line being the best for today, that from what reports I heard from the Captains I talked to. Riggers from 50-80 Divers from 180-250. Some hot baits were DW Purple Thunders and Gold 42's early the it turned to Stinger Stingray Green Dots, Nukes and Purple Clowns. The best spinners were Death wish spin-doctors with A-Tom-Mik Stevens Flies early, Silver Green Dots with Gator flies and Revelator Twinkie Greens later.

Have not fished since Tuesday but a number of charters did and the word had been the same 26-28N, 14-8W, 50-100 down divers 180-260 (sounds like a lot of good water!)Kings, Coho's and Steelhead. DW Gators, Stinger Hog Wild's and Nukes, DW Hologram Dolphins along with Silver Green-dot Spin Doctors with Gator A-Tom-Mik flies behind them and Twinkie greens on the divers and deep rigger

This is a subject we have discussed in the past I will bring it up again, plainer boards with coppers, since this has become a hot topic I called my insurance agent to discuss this issue. Bottom line, you are responsible for the equipment you run on your vessel. The same as if you were driving down the road and something fell off your car or out of your boat and caused damage to the the car behind you would be responsible for the damage to that vehicle. So if you are going to run coppers on boards don't expect the other boat to give way to you, protect your own equipment and move it!

What do we know, first there is a lot of bait in the inside water, and the current under 150 fow is very difficult to adjust to, you can have a great day in there or catch nothing. So today we moved off shore back to more stable water and the most consistent water we have found over the past week which is at the 28 line. There are Kings, Coho's and Steelhead to be had at that level. The best were riggers from 60-80 and divers at 180 and 200. Hot baits were DW Hologram Dolphins and Silver Glow Nose/Glow Green along with Silver Green-dot Spin Doctors with Gator A-Tom-Mik flies behind them both on the divers and deep rigger.

Saturday, June 30, 2012

From Capt. Tom and Mate Jeff on Wharf Rat. The 28N and 14W was best for them riggers 40-75 and divers 180 to 200. Best spoon was Mixed Veggies and the 42/42 spinner and fly on the divers was their best mostly Steelhead with a few kings in the mix.

Friday, June 29, 2012

The best bite continued to be from the 26 line to the 28 north and from 8 to the 14 west with a good, mix of kings and steelhead. Riggers from 60-90 divers from 180 to 240 and 400 coppers. Hot spoons DW Mag gators deep and on the copper, orange crushes and the lucky spoons on the higher riggers. Divers were best with silver 42/42 spin-doctors and A-Tom-Mik flies and innovator/dew spin-doctors with A-Tom-Mik gator flies behind them (which is the L202 Green Crinkle Live).

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Well the NW wind did it s job and pushed warm water in tight. The best was 25.5 to 26 as far as 28 out front. Mostly Steelhead with some kings mixed in. Riggers from 50-90 divers 240-280, silver orange and DW Mag Green Gators were the best.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

The wind continued to blow and the lake continued to rock. Only heard of one boat going out today and that was from the DEC Survey vessel. They told me that that group fished around 400 feet and had a few Salmon and a few steelhead no other info was available. Hopping we get out tomorrow it does look promising.

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

It was not a better day with a continued angry lake

Monday, June 25, 2012

NW wind 15-25 waves 4-6 no one ventured out hoping for a better day tomorrow!

Saturday, June 23, 2012

To make it short today was pretty much a carbon copy of yesterday.

Sorry we are late but had to take the wife out for dinner. Fishing is very good, 100-150 east to the Glass House west to Johnson's. Riggers 50-90 divers 250-270 were the best. Kings all year classes, Steelhead and browns. Hot baits DW Green Gators, Fire Crackers and Stinger Stingray Green Dots. Small Dog Spin-Doctors with A-Tom-MIk purple Mirages and Gold 42 42's early, 72 Monty Spin Doctors with A-Tom-Mik Crushed Icicles and Innovators with Pro/Am's later in the day.

Wednesday , June 20, 2012

Summer is here and thank God for the breeze on the lake. A number of boats out today, most fished from the ladders to the glass house any where from 100 to 200. Steelhead came 60-70 on the riggers on DW green gators, Salmon came early on Gold 42 Spin-doctors with A-Tom-Mik Gold 42 flies and Little dogs with A-Tom-Mik purple mirages behind them at 180 and 200 and later at 300 on Spin-doctor Innovators with A-Tom-Mik Pro/AM's. Also the 72 Monty with Crushed Ice worked well at 100 for a number of kings on the center rigger.

Monday, June 18, 2012

Received a report from Jim Gommenginger who fished in front of the flats 150 to 200 ft of water. He had a nice mixed bag box of Kings, Steelhead and a Brown. All of his bites came on spoons with green in them. No info on lure depths was sent.

Well my tournament season is over so now its down to the businesses of fishing. I will be posting reports on a more consistent interval since all of my fishing will now be out of the Oak.

First thing I would like to pass along is that the hot fly this year so far has been the A-Tom-Mik Blue hammer glow, it has been the bait of choice for a number of the big winners in both American and Canadian events so far this year.

I talked to the Buc-A-Roo early this morning and he was in 85 fow working on a mixed bag of fish, I also heard from Irish Thunder who had worked the 27 line with great success on a box of Kings and Steelhead.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I received some late info from Capt. Mark Lewis of Devonian, he had a nice evening with the family strait out in 150 fow. He fished the top 60 feet and had a nice catch of Coho,s and Steelhead. Did not get any specifics on baits.
