Well the fishing season for landlocked silvers and triploid trout is in full swing and I’ll be posting open seats until September.
Don’t be shy, let’s rip some lips!!!

Due to the overwhelming inquiries I’ve decided to post all the pertinent information on this OP.
Where: Riffe lake at Mossyrock, Wa.
When: prefer weekdays but will entertain a weekend trip.
What to bring: lunch (I love a good homemade sammich), warm-cool attire, sunscreen, floppy hat optional, Wa license and anything to make you comfortable. I have a large cooler to keep your lunch/beverages cool.
What not to bring: a cooler full of alcohol or 420.

Convo to set up a trip.

Also let it be known that I AM NOT A GUIDE.

My maiden voyage a few weeks ago.....

My boss doesn't care if he never sees me again! In all this COVID bid'ness, he asked if I needed anything for my WFH gig...

ME: You get me an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier that does 11" x 17", and you'll never see me again!"
HIM: Pick out what you want and let Jessica know. I'll even have her expedite the shipping! :D

Hi, what a great B-Day present for the little guy, which day would you like to fish?

I like to get to the boat launch around 7-7:30am in the summer because the fish dive when the sun gets high and turn off the steady bite.

Generally I like to be off the water by about 1-2 pm.

Yesterday’s exploration of a smaller but close to home lake. Mrs. Caveman joined me and we hit the ramp at an early time of 9:45....:s0140:

She was the trolling captain for this trip and she did very well for her first time piloting the FV Bloody Deck...:p:p:p

We started the troll up the West shore from the boat ramp, the first fish came (only Kokanee of the day, a little 7”er) just minutes as I was setting out the second downrigger.:eek: I didn’t even see it trip the rigger. :oops:

Was getting bit all morning hard enough to pop out of the rigger and reel into find a piece of corn missing and no fish. 8 biters did commit but only 4) 8-10” trout got to swim in the ice bath. It must have been to cold cause the froze with that dead trout look.:(

All in all it was a successful trip, we got into fish, we didn’t get wet, we didn’t loose any gear and we didn’t hit anything on the water or in the parking lot.:p:p:p

At the ramp looking North.

Thanks for the pics Jim. Always enjoy them, and the the story.

Had a guy I've known for years stop by the other day. He's a hell of a fisher. One of those "Diehards". More so than even you me thinks. He'll still stands in icewater up to his hoo-hoo fishing for steel. He stops in on his way back from fishing the Willamette with a guy that lives near me. Damn it was nice hearing the story of the two springers they hooked. 1 kept/1 lost. He said it must have been close to 20 springers they saw hooked that day between the Multnomah Channel and Freemont Bridge. I miss those brisk mornings in the Portland harbor. Watching the trees up on the West hills as they turn from bare to fully leafed out over a couple of months.

Would like to join you.
The next couple of weeks the calendar is full.
My nephew & his brood are driving up here for some Idaho dirt biking, then the wife is going out for knee replacement. :cool:

Looks like a nice dinner. Someday I would like to have a boat. My dad used t fish lake Michigan out of Manistee Michigan with down riggers and cannon balls. I find it interesting that they are being used in the lakes.
