Wow it was hot yesterday, and so was the fishing.  The boats did really well on the steelhead.  They are still fishing East off the Point of Pins in 55 to 60ft of water, the fish seem to be in the top 25ft of the water, so run everything up higher.  The new pink back spoons seem to be working well and the Old JerryLee is still catching fish. Some boats also went SW out towards the Rockline and caught some walleyes, they were fishing in 50ft of water, the fish were deeper there they said like 35ft to 40ft down.

The steelhead fishing is really good, the boats are head East out past the Point of Pins. Running the riggers down around 30ft and also using a slider.  The dispsys are running back 80 to 100ft on a 3 setting, and if you are running planner boards they were using 30 jetdivers back 100ft. The colours seem to be all over, but purple (Kevorkian) and orange seem to be the more commend. There are still the odd boat heading West to catch walleye, they are starting inside in 30ft of water and trolling out to the rockline, Planner boards  with boadybaits and dipsys are working up there.

The fishing has been steadily increasing as the weather started to become nice, however today seems to be a little windy. Hotlips with orange belly’s approximately 120-150 feet back seemed to be doing the trick for body baits as of lately. Orange and purple spoons managed to work well as fishing off the point has increased due to the numbers of steelhead that are being caught. If you fish off the point, be sure to be in 40-50 feet of depth and to have your lures set to a depth of 15-25 feet as you continue to troll out east towards the gas line. If you plan on fishing for walleyes, be sure to head SW of the channel to about 50 feet of water and start trolling straight west from the rifle range or straight south straight out from the rifle range. Have your lines set for approximately 30-40 feet of depth. Mind you, no lure is set to catch fish so every 30-45 minutes without catching fish be sure to change up your lures.
