Today Troutski and I met at Green Peter Reservoir and tried our luck. On the way up the roads were icy and a bit treaturous but we made it unscaved. We met at 8:30 AM at Thistle Creek boat ramp. The water was 39 degrees but the air temp was below that. We trolled from the ramp to the back end of the lake, with not even a strike. We cast a few lures without a bite and proceeded back the other way. We tried one of the fingers without a bite. So we proceeded across the lake and trolled from the south end of the island toward the boat ramp. As the day progressed the water temp rose to 43 degrees. We were about to turn into the finger the boat ramp is located on and my pole began to twitch. I was so shocked I almost forgot what to do. Ha Ha. I reeled it in and it was a nice Chinook. We then turned the corner and headed toward the ramp. We were just about to reel in and call it a day and boom, Chuck had one on. He reeled it in and it too was a nice Chinook. We had a good time and finally got the skunk of the boat and both of us.
