Sorry late report but just had to share. Finally after 5 years, I caught a 20" cutthroat out of Lake Sammamish. I read so many reports from other members of catching 20" inchers. Closest I had come was a 19" incher a couple of years ago. Needless to say, I was pretty excited. My husband smoked it up and it was excellent!

Fishing the northern area on the westside, 50' on the rigger, 90' back. Using a 50/50 arrow flash dodger and homemade 50/50 beaded spinner with a small piece of perch. No scent.

Also caught 2 beautiful kokanee and a small blackmouth. All released per regulations. Finished the day with 4 cutthroat & a perch.

Now if I can only figure out how to fish the sound and catch some coho or kings.

Tight lines!

Awesome Fish, That lake has been hot. 3 weeks ago I limited on Cutts 17" to 19" and that rarely happens.

Conrtatulations. I've fished Sammamish for 12 years pretty regularly trolling flies in the winters catching scores over 18 inches. Never once broke the 19.5 inch barrier.

I'm surprised there's anything cutthroat over 10" left in that lake since everyone keeps them.

The WDFW encourages catch and eat cutt fishing in Sammamish. They're a major predator of the salmon smolts.

I usually come home with my limit of Cutt's every time i fish the lake.. sometimes it may take 6 hours.. but i try to do my part to save the salmon population..... lol
