Re: Kokanee lake wa

Any tips on where to go on Lake WA this time of year for kokes? Thinking about knocking the dust off the downriggers on Sunday. Some of my favorite Kokanee spots this time of year are just south of the i90 bridge and up by Kenmore. Focus on deeper water and look for suspended school of fish in 40-8...

Re: Lake Stevens tips?

Lake Stevens Bows can be very moody. I catch most of mine during the winter months trolling stick baits along the shorelines. During the Spring and Summer its mostly incidental catches while fishing for Kokanee. I do know my neighbor does okay fishing the point just outside the cove

Re: lake chelan get together

The State park has two docks that are for overnight mooring of boats. They are free with camping. Only thing is if the wind is right way it hammers on the boats. I split a fender tied up to it last year.

Its time folks! The weather is warming, trees are regrowing their leaves, and the waters are warming. That means one thing around these parts. LAKE STEVENS KOKANEE!!!

Re: Lake Washington Cutthroat

Current studies are actually being done on the Lake. They started in 2014 and have been addressed at several fisheries meetings. Results have showed that several different stocks of fish move into the lake to feed and the lake itself has successful reds in almost every feeder creek. Cutthroat are an...

Re: Lake Washington Cutthroat

Only advice I'm willing to give is: Lake wash Cutts are an unsupported fishery, there are no hatcheries putting fish back in the system. Studies done on the rivers in the lower sound show less than 1000 breeding pairs on the 4 river systems studied. I think he was asking for fishing tips not a hist...

Re: Lake chelan camping.

If i were you I would camp and launch at the state park. It is a nice facility and see's less ramp traffic then Millbay. And plugging the boat ramp shouldnt be a huge problem as long as you don't take a ton of time. Right outside of the cove near the state park can offer great fishing for Kokanee, M...

Re: Lake Stevens kokanee late February

For those little buggers the first thing I do is make my leaders a little longer, around 18 inches versus the 10-12" for April/May. I also like to use bait scents (Krill, Herring, Shrimp) and tend to shy away from Garlic and Anise. But the biggest trick is getting your gear away from the boat. Boats...

This is what North Of Falcon is really good at. Take last year into account. Water temps in the strait and off the coast were 6-10 degrees higher then normal. We had drought conditions in all of our rivers. And the Gulf of Alaska was consumed by a warm blob of water with no ocean upwelling which is ...

Re: Lake Chelan koks

Try pulling you usual trout gear around the shallows of the lake. Down in town by Chelan can be a good spot. Chelan has some great trout fishing and some can be quite large! Just be sure to release any native cutthroat you catch.

Re: Abu Garcia C-7000 Levelwind Reel Vs. Warefare

If you are willing to spend the money on an Abu 7000 and plan to use it in salt, I'd suggest getting the Shimano Charter Special instead. Probably the most common and affordable lever drag reel sold for the past 20 years. The 1000 series reel will handle just about anything you'll find in these wat...
