    Default Roll Call

    Please re-introduce yourself to the Washington Board. I want to keep my contacts up to date and check on our coverage of the many great kokanee fisheries in the state. I look forward to your local reports and discussion threads and perhaps we may be able to organize a gathering in the future.

    I see some people fish at Merwin. I have a RV set up at the Campers Hideway & keep the boat there durning the season. Maybe we could have a little get together & BBQ at my place some weekend. My boat is 18ft. & fishes 3 or 4 & plenty of room at the RV or bring your boat & launch from the Hideway! I need all the HELP I can get!!!

    I am very new at kokanee fishing. Have a house on the Klickitat River and been fishing for Salmon and Steelhead for the past 10 years. Wanted to try some new and was introduced to kokanee fishing by my son this spring and have really taken a liking to it. Trying to soak up as much info as possible - this forum and all of you have have provided great information. I hope to be able to meet some of you and share fishing experiences.

    My buddy and I used to fish Lake Stevens everyday after school for years, we used catch kokanee on ford fender and worms. Just got back into kokanee fishing over the last couple of years and the new methods, well new to me, are much more productive.
