Thread: Eastern Idaho Koke member!

    Howdy, all.

    I have been a kokanee fisherman for about three years. I mainly fish for kokes in Ririe Reservior (Bonneville County, ID), Mackay Reservior (Custer County, ID) and Anderson Ranch (Elmore County, ID).

    I have an 18' Starcraft Holiday I have kind of converted to a fishing boat, with Walker manual downriggers, a Lowrance Hook2 7" Triple-Shot sonar. I have an older 7.5hp Johnson SeaHorse as my trolling motor with a 125 Evinrude as my main powerplant, as well as a 42# MinnKota AutoPilot bow mount electric motor.

    I am a huge Kokabow tackle fan, most of my dodgers are the 5.5" tailfeather dodgers. I also use the Kokabow mini-flight attractors quite often. I have had good success with the Wigglefin tackle HellRazor Dart dodgers as well.

    For lures, I again, use Kokabow spinners, Paulina Peak hoochies, Mack's Wedding rings, and some hand-made hoochies.

    I use the Eagle Claw kokanee rods, Okuma Kokanee rods, and TICA rods. I use all three types.

    In the three trips I have made this year to Ririe Reservior, I have boated 45 kokes and 7 trout.

    Happy to be here, looking to gain and share knowledge.

    If you're ever on the water in Eastern Idaho, and see an old speedboat with a red bimini rigged for kokes, come on over and say hello, I'm always happy to tell you where and how deep I am finding the kokes!

    On occasion I travel from N Ogden to visit with a good friend who lives in Ammon. His boat sees action on Ririe which I will fish with him there. He has an 87' Marlin hardtop glass boat. Right now he is at American Falls Res for the week. I've been hitting Flaming Gorge, Strawberry, & Fontenelle for kokes.
