    Use the color blue?

    Since some of us now turn to making rather than using/losing tackle, has anyone had very good luck using blue lures for kokanee? Blue is supposed to be visible deeper than red, so I was just...

    Sticky: small kokanee

    I know we would all like to catch bigger fish, but if there are no small ones there won't be any big ones. It is encouraging to hear that there are now small kokanee being caught in Lucky Peak. ...

    Shrimp

    I was thinking about a bag of frozen shrimp and just putting on a small piece. It might stay on better than corn and maybe even get more than one fish.

    Shrimp

    I was thinking about using some pieces of shrimp instead of corn with scent. Anybody tried that? Did it work? Shrimp and krill scent from Pro-cure seems to work well, so I am thinking I might try...

    Warm Lake

    I fished Warm Lake several times this summer. Mostly 10 to 12 inch rainbows and smaller kokanee. I always caught fish, but not anything of great size. The skiers were polite, so I had a good time...
  6. Add a snubber

    I still use weight, blades, and a spinner much of the time. Putting a snubber between the troll and the spinner has helped me keep more fish on the line. Although I do have a downrigger, I like to...

    I use a small three bladed troll and spinner that I make, let out 100 ft of line, and catch fish near the surface. I troll at about 1.5 mph according to my plotter. I have never had problems with...

  9. Trip on 4/22

    I fished from Curlew to Lime Ck today. Great day on the water. But, only boated two kokanee, lost one, and broke a rod. Still, a good day. Beats working.
  10. The narrows

    I will admit some ignorance. I have fished Anderson quite a bit, mostly from Curlew down reservoir, but don't know which region is referred to as "The Narrows." Can someone help me out?
  11. Area and depth?

    Any hints about which part of Anderson and depth?

    Road

    I have seen it a lot worse, but there were some places where I really slowed down to keep from bouncing my boat. I wouldn't mind going back in but there are definitely some places where slow is the...

    A few fish today

    I longlined across from the ramp and towards the dam. 7 rainbow and 3 kokanee. I used a three bladed troll with a spinner. The downrigger with a hoochie didn't produce as well so I went to two...

    Nice! Has anyone checked out the Curlew ramp recently?

    deadwood limit

    Part of the justification listed earlier this fall is the need for eggs for the hatcheries so fish can be planted in Lucky Peak, etc. The last two years have been a bit scant, so the Lucky Peak...

    boat launch

    There is a crude boat launch at the campground at the south end of the reservoir. No dock is available. I have seen it but not used it. Most people launch off the bank where the river comes in at...

    local area

    I think Cascade is a better fishery than Payette. Payette used to have good kokanee, but that is long gone.

    Cascade has rainbow, perch, bass, and a few kokanee. Horsethief, east of Cascade, had...

    What is next?

    The season is just about over for me. When I need gloves to keep my hands warm it is time to start making lures for next year. I am going to add to my stock of home made tube flies so I don't have...

    Kokanee meat

    Thank you for your research and your update.

    Both my wife and I thought the lighter color meat did taste a little milder, but that may vary depending on who is making the comparison.

    Again,...

    Maybe the last trip of the year? Color of kokanee meat?

    I fished between Charcoal Gulch and Gooseneck for most of today. After the wind calmed down, I got one rainbow between 20 and 25 feet deep. I noticed some "boils" on the surface so then I tried...
