I just posted an update on the Colorado forum on a recent ice fishing outing at a high mountain lake here in Colorado. This lake (Antero) is known for how fast the trout grow by feeding on the fresh water shrimp (scud). A couple of years ago the Colorado DOW started stocking Kokanee into Antero and while ice fishing earlier this week for trout we also caught a few Kokanees. Antero is only about 15-16 feet deep and in the summer there is a lot of weed growth, so at first impression it not the typical deep water reservoir you think of for Kokanee. It is good to see the Kokanee doing well. At Antero the weeds can grow so thick that by early summer trolling is very difficult. So during the winter ice fishing for the Kokanee is when they may be the most accessible. All of this leads me to ask and hopefully start a discussion on Ice fishing tips and techniques for Kokanee.
Thanks and Happy Holidays everyone!!!
