Union Valley Reservoir Kicking Out Quality Kokanee

By: Troy Barr Union Valley’s kokanee fishing has been incredible summer. It’s a long ways for me to drive, but with the quality of fish this high mountain lake has been producing it’s been worth it. I wish it were closer because many of us Northern California kokanee anglers would be there all the time [...]

Lake Chelan Kokanee In Full Swing

By: Brad Wagner As our cold, snowy North Central Washington winter fades to a blustery spring Lake Chelan’s kokanee fishery is heating up as fast as the air. While we have been making the cold, long boat ride up lake the fish are starting their annual migration down lake to follow the food. Fortunately, those [...]

Washington’s Roosevelt Lake Kicking Out Monster Kokanee

By: Big Duane Inglin There’s many hot kokanee bites in Washington. However, no reservoir can rival the size and quality of kokes being caught in Lake Roosevelt. It’s become the go-to place in the Northwest for trophy kokanee. Normally, anglers target them in the winter, but spring and summer can be productive, too. And, it [...]

Chelan Still Kicking Out Limits of Tasty Kokanee

By: Anton Jones Lake Chelan Kokanee have been numerous with jumbo fish to 16 inches in 2016. After banner years from 2012 thru 2015, they are the talk of Northwest anglers. With liberal limits that allow anglers to bring home tasty fish the lake's kokanee fishery is becoming more popular each year. Kokanee are dwarfed [...]

Learn to Make Your Own Cured Kokanee Corn

By: Sam Baird Recently, I wrote a blog on how to super charge Fire Corn to help catch more kokanee. However, I know many of you are purists and only want to cure your own corn, rather than using a pre-cured product. At times, prefer home-cured corn to tackle finicky kokanee. Fortunately, Pautzke produces product [...]

Learn To Super Charge Corn & Catch More Kokanee

By: Sam Baird The beginning of spring tends to mark the start of kokanee season in the Northwest and California. This is a time to organize and restock our lures and dodgers. Kokanee anglers are gear junkies. We have an unlimited combination of squid, flies, spoons, blades and spinners along with every shape of dodger [...]

Berryessa Kokanee Plenty of Water, Plenty of Fish

By: Troy Barr A lot of our Northern California reservoirs are in bad shape this summer. Fortunately, Lake Berryessa isn’t one of them. Berryessa is great right now. It probably has the most water in the state. It’s only down about 42 feet. You have places like New Melones that are going to be at [...]

Time to Jig For BC Kokanee

By: Rodney Hsu Beside trout, kokanee is by far the most popular freshwater gamefish species in British Columbia. They can be targeted year round, under the ice in the winter and from a boat in summer and spring. During the soft water season, the most common way of catching them is by trolling an artificial [...]

Last Chance For Lake Chelan Kokanee

By: Brad Wagner Sockeye season opened Wednesday here in the Wenatchee area and our kokanee on Lake Chelan are starting to be ignored. However, the kokanee will still fish good for another few weeks and there won’t be much pressure. Most of the guys are going to bounce over to the Columbia River and fish [...]
