it wasn't 5am party - it was 4:20, we should have stayed up that extra couple of hours and hit the mist on the lake.
Coupla chums and we would have been fine to return for breakfast and coffee!!

edit ... I sure do look hungover in that Sunday morning pic that Lilsalmon posted (guys around picnic table), but the lake cured that

We saw that family of otters. Pretty cool little group there. The osprey snatched a few fish out of the water and yes, those red-neck guys were extremely annoying! They kept swearing up a storm and yelling about how good they were and how about every 2 mins they had a monster bite on their line. Was really annoying.

I was there with two friends. We got there friday afternoon around 4 pm. We were in site 45. One of my friends was bank fishing the whole time we were there. My other friend and I were out on the water in the blue canoe. We didn't have much luck, either of us. I was the only one that caught anything, just two small fingerlings. Saturday we hit the water again. It was pretty awesome to have the whole lake covered in fog for the first part of the early morning. around 9:30 we all went to the dam and fished from there, again no luck. The lake started to get really crowded so we shot off down Mt. Hood.

So we hit the sandy looking from some good little trout holes. We hiked it for a little ways and then found a nice little hole. While we were fishing it some HUGE coho came in and took up residence. HUGE!!!!! First is was one, then three, then five, and by the time we had left, it was seven. The largest had to be a least 12 - 14 lbs. We tried everything, lures, jigs, bait, etc. I had the most "luck", if you could call it luck. I was using a a few different flies. I had a few "almost-strikes" with one in particular. They were "almost-strikes" because the fish were located just at the end of a fairly strong current. The current seemed to pull the fly away at just the last moment just as the fish would rise to take it ....... very annoying. The interesting thing was that I would watch them rise to take actual real flies off of the surface and they would do it quite quickly. Yet with my flies, they would rise very slowly. It almost made me think that they were rising to see what it was, but their whole body would come out of the water. I was also trying to do this with a spinning setup so it was a little difficult. Time to get a fly rod setup!

Hi Spydey,

I wish I was there, but you guys had have a HUGE blast. I missed to have a new friend there due to my son school start. In the meantime, I will head there on this Sunday with my son. so would you share where do you think fishing hole is for us including bait/lures?

Thank you,
Spark.
