Today was a fun fish day with my wife, Katie. It was a beautiful day! We took
a few hours off and decided to give fly fishing for Colorado Kokanee salmon a
try. The fish have moved into the Dream Stream section of the South Platte
River from Eleven Mile Reservoir. The DOW is currently trapping the
Kokanee salmon to harvest eggs and sperm for their hatchery program.
There were still plenty of salmon to go around.Kokanee salmon are the landlocked cousin of the Sockeye salmon, which is
well known in Alaska. A few hours fly fishing for Kokanee salmon is a nice
change for a day, so go give them a try. Good numbers have been reported
in the East River, and a few have shown up in the Blue River as well.
