not sure, they have scaled back significantly on how much rain we are expecting to get and much of it will just soak into the dry soil. water was quite low when I check the launch last week. That said, Pepper and I are planning to spend next Tuesday or Wednesday at the lake, depends on what the wind does, but just checking the weeds and depths in all the coho locations, not really expecting many, if any, coho in there yet.

Oct14- water level up nicely from the rain but river not moving and no rain predicted for a week or so.
I wasn't expecting any coho; didn't find any. I was testing out new kayak wheels (Boonedox Landing Gear) and an aluminum rudder that both worked great; Pepper and I checked the whole lake going counterclockwise- less algae, more weeds, 64F water.

We did find this shiny boy at the top of Fiddle creek arm. Full marks if you know what he is.

That’s a nice fish! The scales look cohoish, not sure what it is. Looks to big to be a blueback yes?

big old cutthroat buck! the big red stripe and red gill plate hint at a rainbow but it had teeth on its tongue and body shape (long for the head/tail size) hinted at a fish that has spent some time feasting in the ocean but not necessarily this year, it might have stayed up in Fiddle Creek area all year, just for fun I guess. :cool:
