    Default North Carolina Kokanee?

    Hey folks! I'm new here so please excuse my greenness. I've been researching kokanee salmon after discovering there is some in Lake Nantahala in SW North Carolina where I live. Has anyone been fishing there or would have any suggestions as to how to fish for them there? I've heard people troll...

    Welcome NCSAMMONMAN from a former resident from Fayetteville (Ft. Bragg). Back when I lived there (60's-70's) I didn't even know what a kokanee was much less know that I would have a passion fishing them up here in the Pacific Northwest Washington (PNW).

    Up here we troll exclusivity for them but in other places like Oregon they jig after they find a school of them.
    I'd try asking around locally for any information about how to catch em.
    Please report back of your adventures there, I may even make the trip back one day to get after some NC kokanee.
