19 - Spokane Confluence to Lake Roosevelt North End Fishing Report
Thursday half the day was spent over holes that were not productive. It seems that productive spots start producing results right away. After trying a few spots, we finally hit the jackpot. We hooked up our first fish just as we were about to set our fourth rod. This fish jumped for us and put up one heck of a fight. Nearing the end of this fight I tossed out another herring rig and with in minutes we we had ourselves a double. Action was fast for us the rest of our trip. We kept 3 beauties and released 3 shorts. These fish are a blast to catch and are very delicious. It's my version of Wicked Tuna.

How much lead are you needing to keep the rigs on the bottom with the flow still being high? And congratulations on another successful outing!

Awesome fish!!! Have been out there several times in the last couple weeks, been reading and talking to different angles on what bait and set up they use, Still haven't been able to hook one. Can't seem to get it down. Any suggestions to help my fishing buddy and I start catching these nice monsters.

Obviously a guided trip will flatten your learning curve. Must be over fish. Must make sure your gear is on the bottom. Plain herring, squid, or smelt for bait. Lots of good you tube videos will help with all aspects of this sport. If all else fails, wear gloves.
