    Hope this helps. No Kokes to my Knowledge. Lots of skiers.

    Billy Clapp Lake is formed by Pinto Dam which is part of the Columbia Basin Project. Lands around the 1,010 acre lake are included in a wildlife reserve program. Access is limited. Summer Falls State Park, on the north end of the lake, is open for day use. The Department of Wildlife provides public access and the only boat ramp at the south end. Angling opportunities include yellow perch, crappie, rainbow trout, and walleye. Fishing season year-round.

    Hello all!
    I am new to the forum. Enjoyed reading everyone's posts for a while and decided "what the heck" and joined. I really enjoy fishing for the kokes, just don't get to do it as much as I would like (work seems to get in the way a lot).
    I do have a question though:
    My family and I have been going to Suttle lake for about 15 years in April-May and use to just sack 'em until a few years ago. The fishin' really fell off for us. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, what happened to Suttle? Or did we just forget how to catch fish.

    Have fun out there!
