Fished the Basin today and got a 17" Salmon. These land lock salmon are a real pretty fish. I got it on a small white streamer (4/5 strands of crystal flash, white marabou, mallard callor). The strike was very aggressive, and then the runs and jumps where classic land lock salmon style. Lot of fun! I fished starting around 2:00 pm to dark and got the one fish.

We spent some of the time working on the jetties we have been building. You are not aloud to wade in the reservoir, so we started to build jetties 2 years ago. This helps a lot with the casting and staying out of the trees. You have to get there early to get a spot on a jettie.
