2019-10-31T08:54:10-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Stampede Reservoir is one of California’s most consistent kokanee fisheries every year. On the other hand, it hasn’t had large kokanee for three years.

Impressive Kokanee Bite at Bullards Bar

2019-10-31T08:54:04-07:00

By: Troy Barr For many years Bullards Bar had some of the smallest kokanee in California. This was because of the large, naturally spawning population. There were too many kokanee in the reservoir and they were competing for the same food source. Fortunately, the fishery has improved in recent years. Bullards is a place to [...]

Union Valley Reservoir Kicking Out Quality Kokanee

2018-04-18T18:57:40-07:00

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 [...]

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 [...]

Learn to Make Your Own Cured Kokanee Corn

2019-10-31T08:52:39-07:00

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 [...]

2019-10-31T08:52:16-07:00

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 [...]
