    Default sunday 1/28/18

    went out sunday, and fished from 2 to 515. Landed 2 trout and 2 kokes. Super windy, made it hard to keep a good speed. Trout were at 15 feet, and the kokes were at 8 ft. Everything is still pretty spread out, not much action on the fish finder. Water was 38*

    On the east side of gooseneck bay. At the end of the rock wall right be for that big Sandy point that shoots out. We caught all the fish going back and fourth down that rock wall. Turning around off that sand point

    Default Spring Shores Launch open?

    Hoping to take the boat out on Tue for the first time this year. Is the launch ramp at Spring Shores usable, or do we still need to launch by the dam?

    Yes Spring Shores ramp is useable even a couple of docks in the water. Good luck up there!

    Default Message board acting strange

    Has anyone noticed any irregularities in the board lately. I don't see the newest posts until I log in. Once I log in it reacts normally, but until I do, I don't get to see the complete thread. and it happens on all the threads. Just wondering.....

    Default great boat ride, great fishing, catching not so much

    I launched at Spring Shores, had a slow boat ride for about 4 hours, and decided to come home. Not a single tap. I fished east of the ramp and then went back down the reservoir a little beyond the heli pad.

    Hmmm..... That's disappointing to hear Physion. Hopefully this isn't the "off year" for Kokes on Lucky Peak, but it's still early. I was going to give LP a try sometime next week, but now I may head up to Arrowrock. I prefer fishing Arrowrock over LP because the boat traffic is is much lower there. The road there is just a pain in the butt, though. Seems like the road is mostly in rough shape. I can deal with that, but it seems it like it is always dusty or muddy.....which means a lot more work cleaning up when I pull into the driveway. I'll post a report when I go.

    Default Thanks for the report

    Thanks for the report. The board at Sportsman's says the trout bite is "great" and Kokes "good. Maybe a bit over exaggerated?

    The Sportsman's Warehouse locations publish their fishing reports on the web, and they are often word-for-word the same for months and months on end. Terrible source! Mike

    One of the guys I ran into at LP on saturday said that he thought the bite was off because they had raised the water quite a bit. I have seen water level changes do that in the past.

    Default Water level

    I use this site to track water levels on Lucky Peak. You can also get to other reservoirs from this site.

    https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/ram...ir%20Elevation

    If the site is correct, Lucky Peak has dropped less than 3 inches since Mar. 5. I don't think that would have much affect on the fishing.

    Fished for a few hours on Sunday. No bites the whole day (I'm also a newbie, so take that with a grain of salt). It was a nice day for a boat ride though. Tight lines!

    that board is a joke in the winter time. Never gets updated. I bet that report was posted in august 2017

    we went up to LP last week and got 1 koke by the dam, then proceeded to get nothing for the next 3 hours. Evening trip. The last time we went, we got 6. But the water level has rose about 20 feet since that trip. Last year the bite turned off when they started to raise the water. Give it a week or 2 after it fills up and they will be back on.

    The wife is out of town for a few days. I figured that it may be a good time to head over to the Columbia river and get in some Springer Salmon fishing..... But forecasted to be way too windy and rainy. Will probably stay local and hit either Lucky Peak or Arrowrock instead. Hmmmm.... Not much action at either reservoir. Right now I'm leaning towards Arrowrock.

    Default 3/20/18

    Fished 3 hours caught 3 on last Tuesday. Water was 38 degrees and cold wind off the water. Doubled Kokes at the second pipe up to the nursery and long lined a trout at the first pipe on orange panther martin.. Kokes on orange kokabow and pop gear. Not yet great fishing but I'm getting cabin fever.
