Heading up to the big lake next weekend to do some walleye fishing.  Just wondering if anyone has been seeing any salmon activity.  We want to spend one day trying to catch a few (or 1).  Let me know of any reports.

Threw some spinners and spoons in Scoria Bay yesterday but didn't get any takers.  The dog got a nice swim though.

We fished the east side against the Riverdale bluffs on Sat night from about 6:30 to 9pm.  Had the balls set at 90ft and 100 ft fishing in about 120ft of water. The first hour we used a white flasher with a red squid and  pink flasher with pink squid.   after getting one release with no fish we switched to a blue flasher and blue squid and it was only about 20 minutes and we got one small one in 90ft. Talked to a few other boats that had 2-3 fish. We packed up and hit the race and scratched out 9 walleye.

Forgot to mention Chuck Norris or The Guy on a Buffalo waded out to his chest south of ramp and seemed to experience much success.  Unknown species/brisk wind out of NW.

Hit the 'race this morning.  One white bass on beach below rocks.  Couldn't feel our fingers after 1/2hr casting.  Paid my 5 bucks and found State Park to be Dead Sea again.  Nice lady at Scott's told us to hit the blocks.  Immediate pike action, little/some salmon evidence (8:30) lots of rising trout.  Rigged wire leaders and pressed on.  Decent number of 5lb class pike caught throughout the day. Firetiger or black/silver seemed to be preferred colors.   Boy caught 5lb salmon on firetiger jerkbait--"still fresh" male at noon.  Saw one rotten male and one fresh female cruising the bank approximately 1pm.  Female was still in agressive mode without wounds.  Observed trophy pike scatter fingerling trout twice--head like a horse, big SOB (6pm).

What did you get the salmon on? Any size to them? They used to set up the ladder way back in the bay in the state park, don't think they use it anymore. It was cool to see!
thx

We got 2 salmon, a few pike, A walleye, and several bass by the damn on sat. Does anyone know when and where they put up the salmon ladder. That is something I would like to see.

Fished Friday and Saturday along the face of the dam for sammys. Friday caught 3 and had 2 others on that got off. Saturday caught 1 and that was the only rip we had. Fish were all decent sized. 6 to 8 lbs. Longlining cranks.

Fished state park swim beach from sunrise to 1030.  Dead Sea.  Saw one pike caught from boat.  Went to east tailrace, saw one salmon jump, no further activity.  Boy caught two dandy whitebass on #11 black/chrome Rap on two consecutive casts; largest 17in/3lb.  If I had a do-over, I'd hit the race at daybreak.
