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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
