I would like to start fishing for salmon off the shore on the lake opposite the tail race. Just wondering if anybody has any tips on where to go, when to go, and what to use? Could use the help, timdog.
I was up there a week ago and people were fishing with salmon eggs from shore. I guess it works pretty well... ideally you get salmon eggs from females while cleaning them. Other than that you can cast rapalas from the edge too.
went up there monday and tuesday, and it was really slow. packed with people and fish. problem is, nobody was catching them. tailrace walleyes haven't started yet either. should pick up before too long. hopefully soon!!!
My hunting partner got 6 salmon last weekend (4 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday). With the biggest being around 11lbs. They were pulling #7 and #8 shad raps (black and silver and fire tiger) around the marina and out in front of the state park. He had a pretty good weekend, shot ducks and geese in the morning and catch salmon in the afternoon.
