    Hey Riverrunner,
    Talked to a guy who fished LP this week. Knows it as well as anyone. Three of them had one strike all day. Had the downriggers at every depth, plus longlining......nada. I've heard the trout are active at CJ, but chasing rumors there is akin to chasing them at Cascade!!! Seems to rarely pan out. I'm going to give Anderson a go for chinook in about a month; looking forward to that. Good luck wherever you go. Mike

    I fished lucky peak 4 times in the past 8 days, trying to figure out where the fish were and what they were doing. I have been fishing all the regular spots, wasnt getting fish, or even marking that many fish. I fished the entire water column, from the surface to 60 feet on the downriggers.

    In my 4 outings I caught a total of 2 kokanee, but getting a handful of trout each time I went. The kokanee by the way had a very light colored meat, and less fat content than the ones i have caught in LP prior years.

    I dont know what has changed at LP, it seems like fishing is getting progressively worse.

    On to the other lakes...

    Default One hit!!! No Fish!!!

    Solo fishing today at LP and this is my first fishing trip of the year. Fish around Charcoal Creek and Pipeline Gulch then toward the Goose Neck Bay. There's one hit on the long line pole with 60' lineout, 11/2oz lead Ford Fender + Kokabow Talon. The DR didn't do any good, fish from 7' down to 40'. Little bit windy in the morning and die down about 1:00PM.

    I asked few other fishermen and they didn't do good either.

    Exciting time was after launching my boat with the help of the new KFF member from Twin Fall. We chat little bit...His new Mercury motor has problem with the fuel not flow to the motor...
    I started my boat up and went to park my truck. When I came back I heard the engine running with abnormal sound. When I step in the boat I saw water just over the carpet on the back. Dang!! I forgot to put the drain plug back in from last winterize. It was plastic screw in type plug. He's helping me again to load the boat on the trailer, I pull the boat out of the dock and by the time that I realized that I forgot to raise the out drive up. The skeg ground on the concrete few feet but didn't damage so bad. It's took almost 15' to drain water out.

    He also found and fixed the fuel line kinked on his boat We both left the dock about 10:15AM...
    Thanks you for your help and I was glad to meet you.

    Default One hit!! One fish (rainbow)

    First time fishing LP and I have to say the fishing wasn’t good but the fishermen I ran into were great! As @fish4kok said, the morning started of pretty eventful at the Turner dock. After fish4kok drained all the water out of his boat we both headed into the area he described. I was marking a few fish at 20’ and a bunch down around 80. I was trolling a green hootchie on one side and a pink one on the other. The only fish I picked up was a rainbow at 20’ on the pink hooch. I had one fish swim right next to my downrigger ball but wasn’t interested in what I had to offer.

    Default Quiet evening at LP

    Daughter and I decided to wet a few lines tonight after the rain let up (getting spring fever). Tried many colors, lures and depths but ended up skunked. Water levelappears to be coming up. Color getting a tad cloudy and debris is starting to appear.

    We fished Anderson last Sunday and although action was slower thank prior outings still not bad fishing, we got 14. We didn’t find any large schools and fish were scattered from curlew to lime and up through the narrows. We tried fall creek for awhile but didn’t find much there.

    Fish were mainly 25-40’ deep.

    Let us know how you do as we’ll be back on Anderson this weekend.

    Did do Anderson yesterday. Real slow only boated two out of 10 hits. Everyone around fall creek did not do well ( that i talked to ) Did talk to boat that fished east of balls and said they had a cooler full - looks like that end would be better Dont know if full moon affects koks?
