We stayed at Quinn river campground. And it was all but abandoned. Only 2 other people in the entire campground! Friday afternoon I took my friends boat out before he got there. Managed to get one bite.. But tried to set the hook like I was bass fishing! Whoops. Once my buddy got there Friday night we went and collected a bunch of cranebugs to use over the next 2 days. We did alright Saturday Morning landed 6 fish. But only kept one nice bow. Had a few smaller Brookies which I've never caught! They purdy little fish! Then this morning we hooked into 2 nice fish but couldn't get them pulled out of the trees before they wrapped us up! That was the trickiest part trying to pull them out of the dang trees! Here's the bow I kept null-14.jpg
Tasted delicious!
We did a little bass fishing too, but since they were spawning I didn't keep them out of the water Long enough to get a picture. They were in pretty shallow water so I let em do their thing.

Saturday night was beautiful here was the moonrise over the lake

I wanted to say "what's wrong with this picture?" A trout? A nice one, too, bet it was a fun trip.

Nice you got out for the salmonids, finally! Next thing you know you'll be going for nooks and steelies.

Best,

Great job! Weather in the valley must have scared the campers off. Looks like it was heavenly up there.

:( Wish I coulda been up there.

You must not know bass very well Eugene.. Bass ARE in the salmonid family.. hence their scientific name... Micropterus salmoides

Wind picked up a little after noon, but it was still manageable. We drove to wickiup and it was blowing like crazy though!

Way to stick it out, Tom. I don't tolerate the wind too much anymore so kudo's to you.

Really???? You sure about that? Lol might want to do a little more research.

Bass
Order: perciformes
Family: centrarchidae


Salmon
Order: salmoniformes
Family: salmonidae

Bass are most certainly not a salmonid

Ok, when they received their scientific name they were miss named. I know they're not salmons. But goober who named them in England still gave them a salmonid name..

No they don't have a salmonid name. Salmon are Salmonidaes, largemouth are salmoides. It's very similar but not a salmonid name.

Went out to CP Friday for a little bit of morning trolling.

Unfortunately, there was almost no wind.
Other than that, the weather was perfect....sunny, not too hot.:cool:
Great day to be on the water, even if I wasn't able to bring a fish up.

Some of the bait guys were getting some success, but from what I could tell it wasn't red hot either.

Any CP reports?

Might go out tomorrow.

I went out with my girlfriend yesterday (6/16). We ended up with one koke and four bows in four hours fishing. Probally had ~18 bites but with the flat water as sunsalem mentioned it was tough. All of the fish we hooked were on red chironomids.
