ONTARIO: Musky-fishing is hot in Lake Nipissing-French River watercourse and in Mani-tourlin Island section of Georgian Bay as spoons and wobblers produce best results with two 38-pound fish landed last week from this water and OG through September.

PENNSYLVANIA: Lake Canadhota ( Crawford County) produced a 42-pound fish last week as Lake LeBoeuf continues to yield midgets and Allegheny River smells, lit. & fig.

STEELHEAD TROUT: CALIFORNIA: Fishing excellent from the lower Klamath upstream to Blue Creek with river clearing and OG; FG in Mad. Mattole and lower Eel rivers for smaller fish, with lunkers lurking in Trinity and Sacramento rivers.

BRITISH COLUMBIA: Stamp River L, FP but OG as fall fish should be moving in soon; Brem is full of fish, with good reports from Silver Creek. OG generally as fall runs get under way. OREGON: Deschutes River L, C, FG in lower river with flies and spinning lures, OG with best results in early morning and late evening.

BLUEFISH: FLORIDA: Blues should fee showing soon in Stuart area, then working southward, and old-timers predict a big run as bait is abundant in the area.

NORTH CAROLINA: Bluefishing has slumped around the inlets since late August as hurricanes brushed the Carolina coast, and OP for inshore anglers.

PACIFIC SALMON: WASHINGTON: 3,500 co-hoes boated by sport fishermen over weekend with average weight 10 to 15 pounds as phenomenal run of silvers turned up last week off Olympic Peninsula; Strait of Juan de Fuca producing limits of 14-to-16 silvers on herring bait or trolled dodgers.

OREGON: FG in Nehalem River (inside the bar) for chinook and coho; OG with mooched herring best lure.

BRITISH COLUMBIA: Chinooks tapering off but some big fish still off Campbell, Comox and Alberni rivers; OP except at Nimpkish River. Coho fishing good and improving, with limit catches at Browns Bay, good fishing at Campbell River, Kye Bay and around Signey; Cowichan Bay will start producing soon and outlook is excellent for silvers in all B.C. waters as fall fishing nears peak in a peak year.
