Well we made it to cougar, group camp at slide creek 5 days. Great camping and fun on the tubes and water, But I only caught one fish 8 inch rainbow on a worm trolling.:( But the lake is very nice and full of water there are a lot of trees and logs in the water so i had to be very carfull not to hit anything cruising around. real quiet, except are group of people, the camp host was great never gave us a problem. I love this lake and the surroundings i will plan another trip late july.:cool: Thanks to all the advice that people had giving. I used the map from chuck and all sorts of lures, trolling methods, and patience but i never got on the lake early enough and played to late so my bad oh well better luck next time.

I always have my best luck in the early morning or in the evening or on a cloudy day. sorry you didn't get much that lake is hit and miss when it comes to my fishing methods. Nice place but not sure i would camp when i can make a day trip out of it. there was lots of debris in the water last time i was up i thought it was from the heavy rains but guess its there to stay until the water drops. thanks for the heads up.

I guess I should have given you the other map;) , this lake is quite difficult to fish for sure. It is a early morning and late evening fishery, you mean the Gold Spoon didn't produce...well send it back and get a new one....it must be defective:)
Next time try targeting the Chinook Salmon, very productive in that lake...deeper and much faster trolling for these fish; they are very aggressive feeders.
Send me your e-mail address again in a PM and I can hook you up with the right gear.
Tight lines...
