Capt. Ron Westrate, Director SLM, reports from First Call ll .
This past week produced some very good fishing with a mixed catch of lake trout and a few salmon in the creel. 90 to 100 foot of water produced lake trout on the bottom and salmon (up to 12 pounds) 40 to 60 foot down.
The lake trout continues to be caught on metal Gold Star dodgers with silver/green, green/chartreuse Spin n Glos. The salmon were hitting Rapture fly meat rigs on the high divers at 180 and 200 foot. Also we did catch slamon on 200 and 300 foot of copper with Pro Troll silver/mountain dew and mixed veggie UV flashers with green hypnotist and wild fern Rapture flies.
Sunday I saw the first good catch of perch. The fishermen had about 40 perch and a couple looked like walleye and exceeded 12 in. The fish were caught in 45 to 50 foot of water and this was the best perch catch I have seen in a couple of years. I hope this continues.
