got on the water at 6:15 pull start the motor and snap pull rope in my hand. GREAT so looks like we are off with only electric. first fish 6:45 in the start of the narrows(C/R) about 12-15ft(shad J FT ). trolled right by swallow into heron *8:00 bam picked up one more otw at about 30ft *trolled for a for about hour half BAM one hit on the snap weight. So I got a 3 ounce weight on a DR clip works great just dont know exactly how deep I am anybody know the formula to figure that one out. anyways reel that in take the weight off start to fight the fish and bam DR clip come un done now I'm doubled up so now I'm trying to feel which one is bigger hand one off pulled in one grabbed the other and there both in the boat. went for a while got 2 more otw 30ft then It happen trolling in about 120ft water otw at 33ft bam and this thing was fighting taking tons of line at first clance thought it was a stripper because of its tail then got it to the boat COHO salmon 2pounds never caught a COHO before fighter . so now it about 130 I'm pumped first COHO but batteries are very low and I still gotta go far so we head back caught another on in the narrows. sorry Tim for not even getting a bite. took pictures but for some reason it will not let me post them so FULL TROUT JONES can post them I just sent them to you. you can show the fatty that you caught . nice full fins on all of the fish I caught.
oh and I still love how you can just be trolling along and a boat goes by you doing about 45mph and like 25 ft from the boat love those JACKA** you guys are idiots. but that still doesn't matter cause I was hittin fish all day.http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/2787/salmonf.th.jpg (http://img31.imageshack.us/my.php?image=salmonf.jpg)

Nice job on the trout and the salmon today. That salmon at the top left of your first picture is a King. DF&G has made some King and Kokanee plants at DV and a few are caught now and then. Nice bonus fish.

The fishing spirit was on fire fathers day !Hes a great dad who deserved it! Everytime I saw him it was fish on !! After reading the reports I figured they would be deep so I played with all the depths from 10 to 30 ft . First fish went to my old man the Doggfisher . 2 minutes in at the narrows were going 3.5 and he gets hammered on a j9 . We were Trollin for nada for a couple hours , heard many reports of slow
Bites after an early morning frenzy in heron. I decided that since the only fish we *caught was near the top to throw a f9
Out .trolled the dam and heard my pole slam on the holder look back and see the brute a foot out of the water .really wish my pops woulda hooked it,but cmon hes not complainin!!. He thrashed about and when he
got closer to the boat this surly 5 lb trout with full tail decided to spit the lure

by thrashing his head violently . I thought I'd lose him til

I noticed the lure was in his mouth like a dog bone sideways with three trebles firmly locked in. Pops netted
Him and we were like Borat *"High Five!!!" Caught a couple more on the yellow grub at 32 ft in the narrows .
King for the *Fishing Spirit *

"DF&G has made some King and Kokanee plants at DV and a few are caught now and then. Nice bonus fish."

does anyone know if these plants were recent,i remember a long time ago they put a lot of kings in.Im sure Ive caught a few kokes there also,just wondering how big they are when they plant them?

They planted fingerling kokes a couple of months ago

Thanks BTH! I remember them dumping fingerling kings also . So how long does it take to grow to 2 lbs in a fishery like DV??? I'll guess 18 months. Google time

Fishing Spirit. I launched right next to you. Small 12 ft. klamath. Bummer on the pull on the motor. Me and my buddy pulled out from the lauch next to you. Went to the damn and trolled OTW 15-30ft with everything we had for nada. Great catch and post! I remeber some time ago about the salmon plant. at least 5 years ago. Didnt hear of the Kokenee plant though. Good info. Thanks all!
