    Thanks for the report! Just moved up to north ID from south ID. Hoping to tackle some kokes this spring! I've never caught or fished for them. In research mode now....

    Fish shallow, for some reason dworshak fish are way shallower than almost places Iíve caught them. Iíll usually start with a downrigger at 10í and one at 15í or maybe 20í. I also fish two long lines with ford fender and 1/2 or 1 oz drop weights on sliders.

    Oder of importance on my boat is: depth, speed, color, bait.

    Last year pink was hands down better than any other color but orange and green had their moments. I generally use shrimp or krill flavored corn. Anywhere from .8 to 2 mph works for me but I usually stay in the 1-1.5 range.
