Cutthroat fishing right now on Sammamish is about as good as it gets anywhere!
It took us a while to find the magic but once we did it was non stop action. Lots of good solid hookups and finally got limits to the boat. Kept the 5 in the pic C&R the rest. This lake is just loaded with quality fish. The secret is to find them. Just because they were at the weather buoy one day doesnt mean they will be there the next.
TWT was up about 5 degrees from a week ago and fish were about 10 feet deeper (30 on the cable). The hot setup was the simple brass spinner shown in the pic, behind a custom bent sling blade, 12 inch leader and slow death hook with worm chunk. Speed 1.95-2.25.
I marked a couple hot spots, those aren't the hot spots. The area between the marks was the hot area. Thats where they were Weds. Tomorrow who knows.
For any Crappie fishermen out there we saw some nice stringers full of Crappie. Launch area and sunken forest seem to be the hot spots. I dont know anything about Crappie but they sure are pretty and I bet they look even prettier in the frying pan.
