Priest lake has been fishing well as of late. Water temps have hit 80 and the fish are settling into their summer patterns. Crappies are still biting well if your trolling through the schools, that all seem to be suspended about 12 feet over 17-20 feet of water. Pulling crank baits over brushpiles is also starting to work well.
The striper and Hybrid bass bite is on fire. We are marking large schools of them under bait balls near steep bluff walls around long Hunter. Zara Spooks, Whopper Ploppers, and black buzz baits have been the ticket so far. Fishing bait with a dropper rig has been very productive using both threadfin and gizzard shad.
