    Were still catching fish. Landed 75 yesterday.

    Does ANYONE have any info on targeting larger fish? I have lucked into a school 3 times of fish 12-14" and landed a 16.5" koke. I've only found these fish in the early season and have been unable to target them repeatedly.

    Thx eschmit04! We boated a few to 12" in mid June, but like you had a hard time finding many of them.

    I've only found em April may. Then they are gone. They have to be somewhere... Wondering if people deal with this in other lakes???

    Planning to head up tomorrow.

    Figured I would check in here and see how far up they are right now.

    Anybody know where to start looking for them?

    We ran from the dam up to Canyon Creek and tried there first.

    Caught a few but it was slow. Tried up a little higher and even though we were marking them they didn't bite. So Back to Canyon Creek and ground it out for a few hours. Got 13. Largest few were 12" and pretty fat. They ranged down to 9"

    Saw them as deep as 70', but didn't catch anything at that depth. Saw them jumping on the surface but didn't catch any on the surface either. All the bites were in the 30-45' range.

    They liked the pink kokanee flies behind green and orange dodgers. Early on a pink and orange micro hoochie got a couple, but then nothing more on that.

    We found scattered fish from Elk Creek up a few miles, then schools farther up. They're moving up pre spawn. Most fish are at 30'. Snooped around til we found mostly 11"+ fish. Lots of 9" fish. Limits no problem. Next years fish are very small. Hope there's adequate feed for them to put on a few inches, but with the early draw down it's doubtful.

    We found nice fish in Elk Creek last Monday but the smoke put an early end to our day. We were surprised that the the eggs in the females were still immature for this late in the in the year. Sure would like to get another trip in but the heat and smoke will probably prevent that from happening.

    Checking to see if anyone can give some information on where to start looking for some kokanee to catch?
    Plan on going Sunday or Monday
    thanks

    We fished Elk Creek yesterday. The fish were scattered and the bite was slow. The fish are still bright silver, no sign of color change.

    Default Fished Sunday

    Fished between Silver and Gold Creek Sunday. Couldn't keep up with 2 downriggers. Didn't fish long, couple hours maybe but put 35 in the boat. Most fish 40 to 45 feet. Dodgers and micro hootchies at 1.1 mph. Marked tons of fish 40 to 70 feet. Fish were 9 to 11 inches with most at 10". Some just starting to blush and the eggs still skeined up but maturing.
