Tried with several setups; wedding ring with jack lloyd baited with corn, green squid, several little fish baits, salmon eggs,and kokanee killers. not a single bite. Didnt see any other fishers pulling anything out either. I was doing low budget canoe trolling at several depths up to 120\' from wolf lodge bay, beauty bay, blue creek bay and down the main stretch. As the sun was setting, we saw probably a hundred as they were jumping, coming up to the surface, you could see their bellies flashing in the fading sunlight. Still not a bite. A couple lines up toward the surface, we were hoping to just hook one randomly as we were going back to dock. Skunked, but at least we didnt see other fishers pulling in fish after fish to add to the insult. October 1 2012 10am-7pm

10-27-2011 While fishing for Chinook Salmon in Wolf Lodge Bay is slow, I caught 13 Kokanee at 30' useing the traditional red wedding ring in front of a 3 blade Jack Lloyd set-up all on a down rigger. I was also set-up with a green dodger and mini squid at 80' for the Chinook. Chinooks were not hitting on this but a few of the Kokanee did.

Fishing for Pike is slow. Find shallow weedy areas were smaller bait fish are found. Fish a depth about 3-10 foot. This should turn up a pike or two. Fish slow using suspending rapala type baits. Buck tail spinners seem effective now.

Coeur D Alene Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Coeur D Alene Lake at 46 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Coeur D Alene Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 46 Prime Crappie fishing is in full swing. Crappies should be migrating to their spawning areas now. They?ll either be up in the final spawning area now or at tributary entrances. Concentrate around 15 feet of water. Fish Primary points at the mouth of the creek arms. Fish Targets at this point instead of focusing on bait fish. Fish trees, shrubs, vegetation, etc. Fishing correctly this time of year will get you snagged quite a bit since you need to focus on making and keeping contact with the cover.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be staging and getting ready to spawn now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Start looking for pre-spawn fish in deeper waters with easy access to shallow clean water rocky bottoms. Walleye should be feeding aggressively right up until they start laying eggs. This is a perfect time to be fishing for Walleye.

Coeur D Alene Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
