Has anyone been up fishing lately? I realize the main run is over, but me and a buddy are planning to head up there tomorrow afternoon for a little while and see if we can't catch a few late salmon.

Thanks

Donnie,

I'm planning on fishing some rivers and mouths along the upper shore this weekend. Let me know how you do if you get out tomorrow.

With the water levels, I wonder if there are some more steelhead coming in....

The weather doesn't look so good as of now...but I was there this past Saturday. It was beautiful outside. Got on the water early with NO wind at all. Not many fish left but they're are a few. We got a few deteriorating pinks and 2 dark steelies. Looks like they've been in there for a while. We also saw a nice size king an upstream pool...about 3 pools up. You'll have to walk to get into the action. But with the rain coming...you may want to hold off. GL to you all!

I just got back from a week up there. I was only able to tangle with a couple fish, but it's a whole new game to me,so I'm happy.I took this trip to get the lay of the land and plan for future trips. Fish were a goal, but I wasn't expecting a lot with the weather being what it was this week.

Tuesday was awesome. I know the word awesome has been cheapened by overuse recently, but check this out.

40 knot wind and 10 ft. waves!

Great pics - thanks for sharing. We're new to north shore fishing as well, but managed to catch a lake trout last weekend (couldn't keep it though).

I'm hoping for good weather and another trip up this weekend.

      I've been looking for a waterproof spray product for gloves and work boots. I've seen a few products like ultra dry, rust oleum, camp dry. I've asked around and nobody has any experience using any such product. Do any of these actually work? I saw a video from ultra dry that their product actually keeps things dry, like a piece of paper, clothing. I use many gloves at work and I'm tired of having wet gloves cold hands from handling things that are full of snow. When mfrs. say their product glove, boot or whatever is waterproof shouldn't your feet or hands stay dry? Moisture goes thru to inner part eventually and hands/feet get cold or are damp.

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!
