Kayak fishing on Cle Elum Reservoir can be hit or miss. I found that spring time is usually more active for rainbow trout and lake trout (aka mackinaw). This spring I was able to land my biggest laker on this reservoir.
While trolling the west side of the lake with a small spoon I foul hooked this 29 inch lake trout along with another smaller one and kokanee. It sure made up for all the times I was skunked on this body of water.
On a later trip I was able to hook up to a healthy looking rainbow trout while fishing with my daughter.
