I finally got out to fish yesterday after having a lot of boat work done .We got on the water about 8 am and fished about 3 hrs till the wind made it too hard to fish . A cold front came through and I wasn't expecting much.
2 of us landed 13 nice kokanee and lost quite a few . the last hr they seemed to be hitting very light.
My neice was using a small flasher with a purple hoochie and shopeg corn.
I was using my usual , a home made spinner and red beads , no attractorand corn . the spinner only out fished the flasher by 3.
Twice we had doubles on. I think fishing is very good . The fish were showing between 11 and 42 ft. we caught all our fish at 15 and 20 ft.
Most were 13 , 14 inches , thick and deep , larger then last yr.

I haven't seen any recient health reports on Kokanee. Lots of people do. If your concerne I'd suggest contacting the NM fish and game dept.
I'm not fond of Kokanee but all the fish we caught were eaten this weekend .
