Finally, I made it up to Porcupine. My neighbor and I got on the water about 9 AM. It was like glass and there was not a cloud to be seen anywhere. The air temperature was around 70 and the water temperature was about 63.

We started fishing with Rapalas on the surface and RMT dodgers with a squid and a spotted Curley’s Lure at about 20 feet down. Fish on in less than 10 minutes – Tom’s very first kokanee ever out of Porcupine, a very nice 13 incher. About 15 minutes later I put one in the boat. Good start to a great day.

Packfan showed up around 10 to 11 AM. Said ‘Hello’ in passing as we trolled by them. They were catching some as well. I hope your out of town guests had as good a time as we did.


It came and went throughout the day and we ended up catching 16 fish – all kokanees. We only lost 3 at the boat, so we ended up with 13 in the live well. The browns that Porcupine is noted for did not want to play at all. We finally quit around 3 PM and headed home. My bride and I cooked 2 of the catch for supper last night. Way better than trout. The others were put in storage for some smoking in a couple of weeks. I’m betting those will be even better to eat.

Here’s Tom with his first Porcupine kokanee.

Here’s the tally for the day for two of us.

Here is the largest at just below 13”.

I was wondering about that also.
