Stampede Kokanee are HOT!

20130718_stampede The Kokanee bite at Stampede continues to be outstanding. For the third time in five days the Kokanee bite was nothing short of perfect. We launched at 5:30 AM and headed straight over to the Island. With two rods in the water we had our fifteen Kokanee in the box and lost another 8 or 10 by 8:00 AM. The fish have been going crazy over the Sep’s Watermelon Strike Master and a RMT Assassin Spinner with Pautzke corn. Today, we used our own mixture of corn which is Shoepeg Corn cured with Pautzke Fire Cure. The Berkley 6 pound XL on Abu Garcia 4600 reels have been getting a work out at Stampede. The fish haven’t been big but they are nice fish. They are fish is running 12 to 13 inches with a 14 inch every now and then. The best depths have been 35 to 40 feet at first light and dropping to 50 to 60 feet as the sun comes up.
