Today I had the privilege of taking an Air Force Veteran out on a guided fishing trip for some Stampede Kokanee. The morning started of cold with a light fog on the water and a very calm breeze. Beautiful summer time conditions. But it also started out slow. It was more than an hour before we got our fist bite but fish did not make it to the boat. In fact the next 3 fish did not make it in the boat. Oh boy, thought it was gonna be one of those days.
Around 6 am, we boated our first Stampede Kokanee. A fat 14 incher that lept out of the water several times and was so active, was difficult to net. Made me look like a rookie netter. lol We put the next 2 fish in the boat back to back, then lost a couple. But the bite had definitely turned on.
Between 8am and 9 am we put 7 fish in the boat and lost just as many. A great hour of fishing.
Top producer today was a pink Radical Glow Tube behind a Rocky Mountain Tackle 4.25′ pink n purple dodger with Garlic scented ProCure shoe peg corn. Trolling speed was 1mph gps speed. Fish caught between 20′ to 35′ deep. Target water depth was 75′
