We started the year with an action packed spring Lake Trout season having many above average days, finding large numbers of big lakers making their way to the boat.
As the water warmed, we transitioned into a phenomenal late June through July walleye fishing, which seemed to routinely bring above average sized fish to the box. The fishing remained good but steadily declined through August to its end in mid September. As the season was coming to an end we saw large numbers off of shore steelhead coming to the net.
As for fall Steelhead fishing, the weather became a major factor with steady winds keeping lake and water conditions poor and making the fishing challenging. On a positive note we did see a major increase in the number of Brown Trout being caught.
I'd like to thank all of you who fished with us this year, I truly had a great time meeting and fishing with all of you. Despite days of slow fishing or poor weather, I was always surrounded by great company. Thank you again for a great 2012 season.
Good Luck fishing, Capt Jason Whitman
