    We fished Friday and Saturday from 9am- 1pm. Fishing wasnít as hot as earlier this year, but still managed 10-12 both days (not bad for 4 hours). The quality of fish are great, but did have a couple starting to turn. 25-35ft kokabow watermelon dodger, cut plug orange or pink seemed to produce best for us. Hope this helps.

    You did better than us. We took home 7 Kok all orange meat with 2 of them are 18". Started to fish from 9:00am we caught 4 fish less than 50 minutes in Curlew, after 10:00 that they shutdown. We ran up to Fall creek and fish in varied depth we lost all 7 of them @ 45'. Later we came back to Lime creek and caught 3 more. Lure set up same as your.

    We fished from 7am-5pm launching from the dam for a change. Had some bites and caught one near the snowman in the am. The bite picked up mid day in the large bay between powerlines and the narrows. We managed to keep 17 and threw back 6 or so in the 12" range. Nice average fish but no hogs. Pink and green were best performers at 30ft on the downrigger and longline with 2 oz weight and 88 ft out was good too.

    Default Saturday 7-20-19

    We fished from 7 am to 430 pm launching at curlew. Started at the upper end and fished down to powerlines and back. We managed 18 kokes, 1 trout, and 1 smallmouth bass. 35 -40 ft on downrigger and longline with 3 oz weight and 55 ft out were both good. Green, orange and pink were all good at times but we never really settled on any one color. A great day on the lake with dad all in all. The fish are really starting to turn now.!

    Hey uncle lucas
    Good job, I am fairly new to this Kok fishing, was there on the 18th, trolled 14 hours for 5 fish, could not see any on the finder, tried everything, pulled at 30 to 40 on the DR but super slow, was doing everything you were but very few fish, could you tell us newbies what length of line you use between the dodger and the squid and what speed you go ??? and anything else you would be willing to share with us greenhorns

    Thanks, Greg

    Try adjusting the settings on your finder. It took me quite a while to figure mine out and if the setting aren't just right I won't see anything either. As far as leader length, some of mine are shorter and some longer 12-24 inches. It depends on the day. Most people use shoepeg corn with some sort of scent or plain works too. The sweet speed for me is always 1.3-1.5 mph. If you see a particular boat catching try talking to them. Most people are approachable and willing to help. Hope this helps and good luck!

    Thanks for the reply, I have the finder set at 83 mhz which is where it has to be to see the elongated air bladders and the depth scale set at 100 feet and all summer long they have been showing up just fine until the 2nd week of July and then they started to disappear, I assumed they were getting fished out, could you tell me , that is if you know, as the season progresses and the fish get closer to spawning do they get more aggressive, I was wondering if as they get closer to spawn do we run shorter and shorter leaders making the lure more aggressive verses shorter lazy leaders, one boat on the lake told me that and other boats said no dont do that so just trying to see what direction i should go this time of year to entice a bite.

    Thanks / Greg

    I really don't have an answer for the leader length/time of year. I will say this year seems to have been off for me and seems like many others. It's been an inconsistent bite with preferred colors changing several times in one day. We marked fish all day on Saturday throughout the entire lake. I will fish a particular lure for maybe 30 mins and if no bites, change. Usually we can find something they like and many times it's just ONE lure combo. Hope this helps.

    Flew in from WA state to check out the tournament with my son and family who live in the area. It was a great time even though we had a hard time boating some fish. Managed to weigh in with only five(picture is just from prior evening). Everyone attending was friendly and definitely something to look forward to again! Thank you Idaho Backcountry Vets for hosting along with all the sponsors and boaters helping raise money for a great cause!

    Default Slow but Caught some fish

    Fished Anderson today from about 8 to 2:30. Five hits, four fish in the boat ... nice size ... right around 17 inches. Two of them were showing some color. The females were full of roe. Found the fish at 40 feet. Two on a silver and blue dodger with the pink hoochie and corn. Two on a "ford fender" set of flashers with the same hoochie. Spoke to another two genlemen who had boated 9 .. all nice sized fish.

    Hey, Conservationist, that was me (KokaneeKevin) and my fishing buddy you ran into on Tues. I'll be sure to say Hi next time. :) I told you 9, but we actually ended up with 10 Kokes in the boat (forgot about the last one just before we headed in). All were between 16" and 18", and fat. Very nice! I had one (a personal best) at 18 1/2". Most had some red, but we had several that were all silver. It was a bit of a slow day, especially late morning. We started around 7:30, ended at 2pm. Started just off the Curlew ramp and caught 2 nice ones before 8am. Thought we were in for a big day. Then nothing for the next couple of hours, except for a couple of hit-and-runs. By Noon, we headed to Lime Creek and caught one there. Then we headed into the narrows and things finally started picking up. Caught the rest of our Kokes there (kind of the northern end of the narrows). We fished with 3 lines, one on a downrigger set between 40' and 50'. Two long lines, one with 4oz and one with 5oz weights. Although we mixed it up and fished between 20' and 70', all fish were caught between 40' and 50'. The rainbow dodger and pick hoochie was the best combo, but also caught several on ford fenders with an orange spinner on one and a pink hoochie on the other. We probably had a total of 20 hits. Lost 2 due to lines breaking (very unusual for us) and lost another one at the boat when it threw the hook at the last moment, just escaping the net. All in all, another great (and hot!) day at Anderson Ranch.
