Not much has changed this week, the fall bite is at its peak. The lake trout have moved shallow, small tubes, power bait twister tails and white gulp minnows have been producing very well. Look for the lake trout on steep rocky drop-offs.

Browns continue chasing streamers and minnow type crank baits in the evenings,after dark and during low light periods. Gravel bars and inlets have been producing some nice fish.

Kokanee have started their fall migration and can be caught with ice jigs and small tube jigs under a bobber.
