    Nice!! Was he deep? I have caught mine in mid'summer with most at 60 feet on the wire. Betting you were deeper. Mind if I ask which general area of the reservoir? Mike

    Default Lures?

    I went out last week hoping to hook Chinook and did not get a hit. Did catch 1 12" Kok and a 12" rainbow. We tried big spoons. What is the best lure for Anderson Chinook? Also wanted to add that the Elk Creek ramp at the dam was down to the parking block at the end of the ramp I would not count on using the ramp there. My trailer wheels were against them when loading my boat.

    Default 9-22

    Fished from Curlew down to Fall creek area then ran back at speed. Got several SMB, 1 perch, 1 rainbow, and about 8 kokes (brother took them, didn't get a final count). Most of the kokes were in really good shape and around 11-12 inches.
    Gives me hope for a good season of nice sized fish next year. Hot pink mini-reaction squide behind gold holo flake UV dodger seemed to produce the most hits.

    Is it just me, or is everyone catching SMBs on Kokanee gear this year? I've caught quite a few.

    Tight lines guys!

    Default Anderson docks at Curlew report

    Just talked to the Boise National Forest office in Mountain Home, and they informed me that they finally got the money to repair the docks at Curlew this past July. They had to go begging to the county, because Washington has cut their funding dramatically, and they couldn't find the funding necessary. They are now waiting for the float replacements to arrive, and they also need to do some welding. They are hoping the weather doesn't turn, and can get the docks in this fall. Mike

    Hey Hooker,

    I've had the same experience regarding SMB on Arrowrock. I don't think it's all that uncommon during the Fall. They are stocking up for colder weather.

    Default Caught only one

    Went out last Sunday and only got one koke, first time with a down rigger and still had a blast, the wind was really up. Hoping to go again on Saturday and may try around curlew instead of the dam area.

    I'm leaning towards being there on both Friday and Saturday. Curlew area. Hope I can do better than 1. Lol.

    If you see Miss Belle and I, say hello.

    Default Not me

    No I was not. I know there are a couple of the older grey fold cats in that area as I have seen them at horse thief. Mine is the newer green.

    Default Water level at Pine

    Does anyone know if you can launch at Pine? Is the water level that high?

    Thanks

    Is this helpful website helpful? Not having been to the ranch in about a month, I have an opinion, but take it with a grain of salt.

    I doubt if any of the ramps other than the one closest to the dam are still in the water. I do believe most people could still launch most boats at Curlew even if the ramp is not in the water, but if your skill level is low it might prove difficult. I will launch mine at Curlew tomorrow if all goes as planned.

    You can use same site as reservoir levels and arrow down and find boat ramps. Go to boise district, then go too Anderson and there ya have it.. Hope this makes sense.

    Default A few Kokes yesterday

    I went out to the dam area yesterday and in three hours got 5 kokes, one chinook, 1 small trout with really pink meat, and one SMB. I would have probably gotten more, but decided to explore a bit and went up the lake and was not marking any fish on the finder in that area.

    Love the Kokabow Comet dodger and fools gold squid combo, they worked well. Fished at 65ft.

    Two of the kokes were white meat, which Allen with Kokabow was telling me about, not sure why they are not getting the pink meat, but at least I have three for the smoker. The chinook was small but very pink meat.

    If anyone finds a two piece aluminum oar that is in two pieces I lost mine somewhere on the lake.
