Wow...


Picked up two in a couple hours on Stevens Saturday. Both were pretty small and got released.

 Samish is still slow to dead. Last year it looks like Stevens was putting out some fish at this time. Need some warmer weather.
Is He worthy?

Went out on Stevens for a couple hours Saturday AM. Picked up a couple, again, very small. I am relatively new to this fishery but I have never seen so many fish jumping. I literally had one jump and hit the side of my boat. Hundreds of fish on the surface. All seemed to be on the small side.

Most boats I talked to had gotten a couple. One had a handful, everyone was saying they were small.

sled, got any wisdom to share?

The Stevens kokes never get that big compared with some of the other lakes.

I have heard that but this year seems to be much smaller than last. I haven't gotten one that is in the double digits for length this year.

Last year my average fish was like 11 or so. Biggest was 17. My main line snapped trying to release from the rigger. cranked up the ball and the line was still in the release. Handlined the fish in over the stern and nearly fell overboard when I saw it.

Whoa, 17" from Stevens is a toad for sure.

I caught probably about 30 or so last year and only remember one or two a bit bigger than the stocker trout size.

Went out on Samish friday. After 4 hrs of fishing we had 16 kokanee in the boat and had missed or lost that many as well. Pretty small fish 8"-13", though they seemed bigger a bit deeper.
Hope to get back out there soon.

Yale two weeks ago started at eight, limited about 1:00 but noticed most boats heading in around 11:00.  Small fish.

Last week started at 7:00, windy, almost white capping.  By 9:00 had five, wind died off to tabletop & only caught one more in three hrs.  Tried deeper, tried longer line, tried different lures, altered trolling speed, nothing worked.

Tomorrow is another day!

Yale - Started today 7:30, limited shortly after noon.  Would have been much earlier if I could have kept them on.  Most boats heading in around 11:00.
