I've heard mixed reports.  I'll probably hit it mid week next week once I get my motor fixed.

Got out twice in March and got a couple each time. All less than double digits in length. Other boats I talked to report the same, a couple small fish.

Last year was my first year fishing Stevens so have never fished it in April but I have to think things are going to heat up. I hope there are some bigger fish to be found.

Thanks Stein, probably the better plan with the weather warming up...

I will add, there are a couple boats I remember yarding them in last year that were out again. I talked to them last time I was out and they had several in the boat.

So I guess you could say mixed reports.

First time on the lake today. Two strikes and that was it. Second time fishing for Kokeís so take my report for what itís worth. It was cold and windy. Lots of fish on the surface though. Me and a kayaker were the only ones out there.

Thanks.  Thinking of staying closer and thrashing the water on Sammamish Saturday...

Checking back in.  Fished Sammamish Saturday afternoon, south 1/2, weather was choppy.  Managed an 18" cut and 15" in Kok.  Slow but good to be out!

Fished Stevens yesterday. Cold day on the water. Very little action for me, maybe a hit or two. Did catch a small rainbow with a huge yellow mark on its belly.

Lots of boats but I did not see anyone catch anything.

Tons of fish on the surface. I felt like I was on Wicked Tuna. Most of them were pretty small.

One of the boats I saw hook up was drifting and casting lures into those groups. Not sure what they were throwing.

Still a bit cold.  Nightime in the mid 40's later in the week after sun all day should help.
