Think I need a bigger front deck to hold all these Kokanee. Was a great bite today at Stampede. 35 kokanee by 8:30am!! That’s a little over 2 hrs fishing.   Morning started off slow. Went 20 mins without a bite. Then a triple hookup and 3 fish in the net together made a mess. Lol. Then it was difficult to keep...

These fish are growing at an alarming rate. Just a few weeks ago we were ecstatic with 15.5”. Now we’re getting some to 17”!!! Got boat limits early and even sped the boat up to 1.7mpj just to make it tougher to bring em in. Then I said let’s try for trout again. So we put on speedy shiners and...

Unbelievable fishing at Stampede today. 30 fish an hour!!! Difficult to keep 2 rods fishing at any given time. Had to pull rods out of the water in order to give my weekly fishing report on the radio. Even sped the trolling speed up today to give clients a tougher time reeling in the fish. It also gave me a...

Another good day today

Another good day today. First hour kinda slow with about 4-5 gooder kokanee. Then lights out. We were done by 10:30am. Fish wanted to play deep in the morning. Best depth was 40-50’otw but we did catch our share up at 20-25’otw too. Tackle charge helped too. The watermelon spinners that were so hot last couple weeks were slow. Took those...
