View Full Version : First kokanee try at Strawberry

My bride and I went to Strawberry today to try for some kokanee. The day started off bad when I slept in until 6:00 AM. Granted, we are in Park City this week, but by the time we got lunch made, stopped for breakfast at the Hub in Heber, picked up the boat in Daniels, and got to the Soldier Creek launch, it was past 8:30 AM. So much for an early start. Iím not EVEN going to go into the fiasco of getting the boat launched and away.

We finally got started trolling about 10:00 AM. We hit all the likely spots on the Soldier Creek side and up into the narrows at least a mile. I put two lines down at 30 feet with every thing I could think of for 6 hours. I also put a long line out on the surface with at least a dozen different combinations. We got exactly zero hits in 6 hours. We marked a few fish between 20 and 30 feet, but never had a taker. My very first skunk day of the season.

Thereís always tomorrow.
