8/9/14 In fish all day! Started the morning trolling just out from the debris jam at 7am, picked up a couple small kokanee headed up the middle tward the dam on ford fenders with wedding rings and shrimp. Bout half way across the lake we picked up and boogied for the dam, slow trolling the shore line opossum the dam we picked up a lot of fish on silver flat fish with a 4 Oz in line weight running it about 30-35 feet deep. That pole continued producing fish most of the day. In the afternoon the bite died down so we switched it up doing some casting against the bank on the south side of the lake with various crank baits picking up a few rainbows and kokanee. We noticed about 4 hours before dark that the fish had changed up again and were slowly working up in the water column. We ran some black wooly bugger flies at various depths around the debis jam picking up some very nice keeper rainbows till about 8 pm when the bite completely died and we headed for the launch. Kept 2 nice 15 inch rainbows, hooked and released close to 30 fish for the day, mostly due to the kokanee having parasites and sores on them and feeling a bit soft. All in all a great day on a new lake. Next up on the list Merwin reservoir, then perhaps Yale and Merrill lakes when the fall bite picks up.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Swift Reservoir Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- wedding rings, Run a few different colors depending on water conditions they will hit on one color combination more, a green and red combo is a good place to start with a bit of worm or corn. Use a few split shots to get you down to 15 - 20 feet if the water temp is down below 45 degrees, trolling across the points and finding submerged ridges is a good bet. Trout are attracted to flowing fresh water so finding a deep cove with a freshwater inlet is a good bet - this lake is a good producer from May - August, early in the season you can usually catch your limit from the bank without to much energy. From the buoy\'s at the mouth of Eagle creak up stream is BARBLESS hooks only.

Swift Reservoir Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
