Today decided to give Offutt lake a try with my friend Kevin. We fished from about 9am- 2:30. I experinced the best day of big trout fishing I've had since moving to Washington 5 years ago. These fish were a battle on kokanee downrigger rods, almost
Reminded me of salmon fishing. We ended up limiting out going 10 fish for 15 hook ups. The trout were caught from the surface to 16 ft on the downrigger. Trolling about 1.6 mph. The hot lures were a spoon I custom painted orange and purple, Brads killer cuttplugs and a luckycraft minnow. Tight lines!

Nice catch. Fish there few times caught some nice trout but yours takes the cake. Never used down riggers there before.

I found the downriggers to be useful to spread out the gear then dial it in. I know the lake isnt much deeper than 20ft but sometimes you can catch a crazy bite on a specfic depth. These qre the biggest trout I've caught to date on the westside.
