Trout fishing is starting to pick up again on Tenmile Lakes.  Trout anglers are catching rainbow trout and cutthroat trout, some measuring nearly 20-inches long.

The wild coho fishery opened in Tenmile Lakes on Oct. 1 and will run through Dec. 31. Salmon anglers may harvest 1 wild coho per day with up to 5 wild coho for the year in aggregate with Siltcoos and Tahkenitch lakes.  A few wild coho were caught in the lake earlier in November but has been slow since.  Fishing should improve when we get more rain.

Fishing for largemouth bass has been good.  Bass are hitting plastics and jigs fished in deeper water.

Yellow perch fishing is very good this fall with lots of fish in the 9- to 12-inch range.  Look for yellow perch in the deeper mudflats in the lake.  Anglers are using small jigs or a worm on a hook fished near the bottom.
