    Good meeting you Roger briefly at Blue Mesa....

    Good meeting you Roger briefly at Blue Mesa. Prior to seeing you i spent 3 days jigging for kokes and only landed 2! I got on several schools but they had lock-jaw so even the guides were struggling...
  2. Lake DeSmet kokanee report - new fishery?

    Hello everyone,
    Last year saw a WY game and fish video on kokanee spawning at Lake DeSmet. I believe they were first stocked in 2019 and have grown well. Based on this we decided to visit the lake...

    Headed west toward FG on Tuesday. Will stop at Seminoe for two days on the way there for some walleye and trout fishing. It is about 1/2 way so it is a good break from the long drive. Will fish FG on...

    Good summary and articles to support your views....

    Good summary and articles to support your views. It would help if all koke fishermen killed the pups they catch by accident. I think as a community focused on chasing kokanee we could put more...

    Good update Roger. I appreciate it since we have many trips planned to BM this year and we are not local. I presume the launch ramps at Elk Creek and Lake Valley are open even though the concessions...

    Different perspective on fish finders?

    Got into kokanee fishing about 3 yrs ago when we purchased our boat. Did not know much about sonar since had only used cheap ones on our fishing kayaks up to that point and had not target kokes. Only...

    Thanks guys - I appreciate the input. Sounds like quite a pain to replace the flooring so I am going to do everything reasonable to minimize the chance of damage. If I use shrink wrap I may pay to...

    Winter boat storage?

    Hello everyone,
    We bought a new 20' Lund Impact two years ago and i do not have the luxury of storing it in a covered garage or boat-port. I have been tilting the trailer so the rear of the boat is...

    I do not have the koke fishing experience a lot of the other folks do, but i fillet all the fish. Smallest fish we have caught have been from Navajo in New Mexico. I would guess some might have been...

    Kokanee meat prep?

    I have heard from several sources, including a fish biologist, that as soon as a koke dies its flesh starts degrading and softening due to bacteria attack. Being sensitive to warm water they almost...
  13. Thanks Nofish.

    When I first started jigging 2 seasons ago I tried several rods I already had but they were too long and the tips too soft. Last year I purchased 2 "heavy" ugly sticks that are 57" long. They are an...
  14. Ice fishing rod for kokanee jigging (from a boat)??

    Hello,
    Just saw an ad for ice fishing rods and noticed that they come in some pretty heavy weights for big fish like pike or lake trout. When jigging for kokes the fish I lose are primarily when I...
  15. Thanks for your insight, SilverBullets and Kokanee64 - very interesting.

    Just got back from our first trip to Navajo. Best koke fishing we have had in the 1.5 years we have been doing it. Had some double, and even a triple hookups while trolling. As you mentioned...
  16. Thanks for your input Mike and Bduck

    When i go to other lakes this season i am going to try to get on some schools and see if they stay put. Next trip is to Navajo starting this Sunday. Never fished it so should be interesting.

    If I...
  17. Slow trolling - time to transition to jigging??

    Hello. I have a question and maybe a solution to the slow fishing experienced by many on the forum? First, i am NOT a seasoned expert koke fisherman. My wife and I really just got into it mid-summer...

    Water level and launch spot?

    Hi, those look like some healthy kokes. Good job. Is the water level high enough to launch at the north ramp near the campground or did you launch near the dam? We were there a few weeks ago and used...

    Slow at the gorge. Good at Fontenelle.

    Fished the gorge on Sat. 5/15 and Sunday. Launched at Lucerne Valley. Headed south toward Sheep Crk where we had caught Kokes last Sept. Only marked one small school and hooked zero. Trolled for a...
