    I fished Payette a lot 12-15 years ago. Not much but lake trout and rainbows back then. Never saw a koke. Looking forward to figuring out the lake again as relates to kokanee. I figure the couple...

    I think we can come close to sticking a fork in this season.

    We put in at 7AM at Bruces. Ran to Reeds and tried up the creek a little, nothing but a couple little ones, so kept going to Grandad....

    Sands,

    My list is long with lots of stuff. I have always said it takes as much gear to fish for Kokanee as it does to outfit a Japanese fishing trawler. If you are going to get addicted, start...

    Well, on Thursday I am going to start at Cranberry and maybe end up at Reeds Creek. Not much else to tell you. It gets hot, the fish go deeper. My last trip was a tough go.

    Still great fishing

    Went out today, Friday July 24. I didn't think the koke would be traveling far up lake after they were so plentiful mid lake and dam end last week. So I went back to Elk Creek at the inlet. Started...

    I'd appreciate the thoughts as well. I've also had some tell me that you can run your gas powered to propel the boat and use the GPS electric on the bow to steer. Ever tried that?

    Sounds like you're getting the hang of it. There are no hard and fast rules that will let you catch fish all the time and every trip. I've had trips, this year, where we caught just a couple. Big...
