    Default Slow on 4/10

    Fished 3 poles from 10 to 5 and only landed 4 kokes. Lots and lots of small chinook. Released all but 3 chinook and the kokes. The kokes were caught (15 ft. dr) on pink/green dodgers with pink/green hoochies and 1 koke long lining a talon kokabow troll and spinner.

    Thank you for your report. Is the reservoir full and water clear? I'm planning to make a trip to Anderson either Friday or Sat if the weather is good.

    I was up a week ago. Was pretty clear then. Water was up and rising, but still several feet from full. A fair bit of twigs and leaves in the water, but not what I'd call really bad.

    Again, this was a week ago. Well, last Saturday, so 5 days ago.

    There was quite a bit of debris in the water, but the water itself was clear and not muddy. The lake was probably about 12 feet short of full. Good luck Fis4kok. I hope you catch a bunch.

    My wife and I fished from about 10 to 5 between Curlew and Lime Cr. ended up catching 9 Kokanee 14-15" and had to keep a 15" Chinook that was too injured to release. Only fished the top 20 ft. Got hits on most things we tried but the best was a Arrow flash gold/moonglow trailing a pink/black tube fly. It seemed like we were doing better than we were with all the Chinook and some lost fish.

    Want to give a big thanks to fish4koke who gave me a jump start. I would have had a hard time loading my boat without my motor. You and your wife are very kind.

    Fish from 9:30Am til 5:00PM and took home 6 fat kok. We released all the Chinook and lost few kok close to the boat. I talked to few fishermen they did very good, two men caught 17, other two caught 19 other two caught 7. Most fish they caught on longline and very shallow. We fished deeper with 2 DRs (10' - 35') Vance copper dodger + pink squid, 1 long line pole with 1 oz sinker and 80' line out Ford fender + green/orange WR. By the time we quit there were few boats fished by Lime creek, they net the fish, more action after the wind die down.
    Lot of boats by Lime Creek before noon.

    Good to meet you Fish4kok. You are the first member that I have met.

    KokaneeJoe, We were the ones that caught 17. We caught many of them before 9:00 am. We were still hooking some the rest of the day but we couldn't land most of them. I didn't catch anything deeper than 13 ft. My friend caught a couple around 20 ft. Pink was the best color. Most were between the ramp and Lime creek.

    My wife and I took another couple and fished from around 9:00 to 3:00 yesterday; we ran four rods. Caught 15 kokes and at least 6 chinooks, from 15 to 25' on DRs. Dark dodgers and pink hoochies with plain corn at 25' were best. Lots of boats, but the people we saw at the ramp were courteous and efficient when launching and retrieving their boats. We fished mostly from west of Curlew to Lime Creek, out in the center.

    Default Launch at Pine?

    I have never launched at Pine. Is there a good dock in the water? Is it a good ramp? How about parking or a parking fee? How far or how much time to travel from Curlew to the Pine ramp?

    Thank you for the info.

    I'm not sure if we're talking about the same ramp, but I have launched at the campground south of the airport (and Pine), on the west side of the lake. I haven't been there this year, but last year it was a good ramp with a dock and good parking. But one windy afternoon, a lot of debris blew in and I couldn't take the boat out there. I would guess it is a 10 minute boat ride to Curlew, maybe less. I was there early in the year, and I don't remember fees at that time.

    Another thing to consider is that the Pine Bridge is closed and there is a 4 or 5 mile detour up the east side of the river to the old wooden bridge and back.

    Default Pine ramp and dock

    Thank you for the info. I was hoping for a dock for my fishing partner, but Pine doesn't sound like a good option right now. I think I'll use Curlew. At least it has a good ramp.

    Terek,
    Did well last weekend fishing darker flashers/Dodgers and hoochies early really shallow in water column, then moving deeper say 15 to 25 ft deep in column and switching to silver flashers and the standard pinks/oranges and purples as sun got higher in the sky. Find your own water. We did better finding quieter water/less boat traffic and usually got bigger fish avg.

    Worst trip I have had at Anderson in 10 years. Threw the book at em. 3 fish in 6 hours. Was super windy too, very hard to control the boat

    It was a slow day but we did manage to catch 8 kokanee. Trolling between Curlew and Lime Creek. Caught 3 in the morning at about 10 ft. then nothing until the breeze picked up Then we caught 2 quick at about 25 feet and then nothing until about 2 when we caught our last; 2 on dw at 50 ft and 1 on long line 1oz. 100 ft out.

    Yesterday we did a little better and caught 14.
