    Thanks for the report! This is my first communication although I have been reading your reports for about a year.
    My question is what areas would you suggest trying this week end.

    they arent concentrated yet so anywhere is possible...had a bit of luck at the south fork entrance and in the bay before the dam...good luck!

    This time of the year the Kokes has the erge to migrate down stream for some reason, not clear on that. Best fishing would be down around the Damns. I was told this, buy a fish and game Biologist.

    I'm going to Anderson Monday the 23rd. Will troll between Dam and Fall Creek entrance. Will Have a report on how we did or how we didn't. I would think that they will be concentrated around that area.ken

    Friday Landed a 17'' koke near the Dam, and several trout on the same gear. This is the first week I have seen the pike minnows become active. Killed about 10 of them. Yellow troller with green wedding ring & corn. zero hits all day on a shasta sling blade and pink wiggle hoochie near surface. Then sat morning the trout slammed the same pink hoochie on the surface. One things for sure the rig that works one day, is worthless the next.
