    The king fishing is hit or miss the last couple days. Some bigger fish showing up but no numbers. If your bites stay on you can still fill the cooler though. 😀. LOCKEDSTRONG 2015.

    Not wild and crazy, but the salmon are still cooperating for us. If you can hang on to your bites it will be a good day. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    The salmon bite remain excellent in Oswego. We are catching all sizes which is a good sign for the next couple years. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    A very productive morning in Oswego. Lots of bites and lots of fish landed. All not released to fight another day. Lol. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    • Shane Muckey wish there was a way too figure out how many were harvested last 2 days and the next 3, wow it would be astronomical.
    • Mason Rector Yeah baby!!
    • Shane Muckey I always tell guys here, a windy or flat labor day weekend makes or breaks how good the september run of salmon will be.
    • Theo Lander Holy shitz
    • Marvin Burdick Would look good on the grill tomorrow

    Definitely some very nice brown trout around, but not the numbers that we would like. Back to grinding out every bite. 😢. Still waiting for some kings to show. Maybe this will be the week ???? Let's hope so. LOCKEDSTRONG

    The fishing in Oswego remains to be challenging. Generic water with no thermocline has everything spread out right now. Had a great time with a fun family. 😃😃. LOCKEDSTRONG 2015.

    It's been a definite grind the last couple days. Same water temps for miles spreading the fish out majorly. Still getting some quality fish, but working hard to get them. LOCKEDSTRONG 2015.

    We've been fishing early for Browns then moving off shore for lakers and steelhead. Not a great bite for sure, earning every fish we boat lately. No thermocline and huge areas of the same water temps. I hate to say it but we need a couple day blow from the west. LOCKEDSTRONG

    A quad to start off the morning. 😃. LOCKEDSTRONG

    The capturing of large brown trout continues. Not fast and furious, but getting enough to keep everyone happy. Same temperature from 10 foot to 60 foot right now spreading all the fish out. The bright sun is not our friend. LOCKEDSTRONG 2015.

    Definitely not an easy bite, but if you put your time in, there are some quality brown trout around. Waiting for the lake to set up for the blood bath to begin. Until then we will grind them out. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    The word of the day is Fog. 😁😁. Got a few Browns and missed a bunch. I hate the fog. Had tomorrow cancel, back at it on Thursday. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    Brutal winds, but we stuck it out with a good brown trout bite. Picked at them the entire trip with some large ones mixed in. LOCKEDSTRONG 2015.

    Another blow off day 😁. These northeast winds are killing us. Brown trout fishing remains excellent the last couple days. 20 plus bites a trip. We need some good west winds to bring back the kings. LOCKEDSTRONG 2015.

    A good brown trout bite continues. The last northeast blow messed up the salmon fishing so we have been concentrating on the browns. We did catch three or four rainbows mixed in though. LOCKEDSTRONG.

    Brutal, windy, cold morning with the boys from Maine, but the fish wanted to bite. 😄. A good mix of everything. LOCKEDSTRONG 2015.
