With springer fishing starting to wind down, has anyone tried for kokanee at Merwin or Yale yet?
I'm thinking it might be time. Comments? :shrug:

hey Jeff,
You still landing some. How have you guys been doing since I fished with you last? I had a blast with the halibut last weekend.
take care,
GBS

I checked in at the fishing bridge 2 weeks ago and saw a couple caught.

Should be getting better.

My dad and I fished Yale Sunday afternoon. We hooked between 10-15 kokes. Landed about 1/2 of that. All fish were between 8-10 inches; very small. All of the fish that we marked we down to 90 ft., but the fish we caught were near the surface. 3/4 - 1 oz. of lead in front of lake trolls and wedding ring/corn, out 30-35 pulls. We also hooked into several 10 in. trout. Hopefully we'll do better in the next 2-3 months.

From my experience, the kokanee in Merwin are bigger, but they are mostly hatchery raised. Yale fish are native fish, but they are smaller. You'll catch more kokes in Yale, and you won't have to put up with the squafish. Yale kokes are much better eating, too!

Hope this helps.
