Well a good buddy of mine and my twin girls went after the kokes today. Fishing has been fairly consistent but not a lot of limits. Today was much better. 4 nice sized kokes in the boat in the first 1/2 hour. We ended the day with our 8 fish and releasing one about 15 inches. Finally catching bigger fish today. 4 weighed right at 4lbs. Made for some happy fishing for my girls!!

The drive out to 7 Bays was very foggy, by the time we reached the launch my truck was coated in a thick later of ice. On the way there the coldest temp I saw was 9 deg. At the launch it was 22 deg. 2 boats launched before I did but I still had to break some ice when my buddy Glenn backed me in. We started off across from 7 Bays throwing blade baits but never had a bite; on the cruise over some water splashed onto my windshield and immediately froze over, that finally thawed about 4 hours later. Our rod tips froze up immediately and didn't stop freezing up until about 1300, so yes it was a very cold day especially once the wind picked up.

We went to the same location as last week and boated 8 eaters (15-17 inches) but the wind picked up to 10-15 mph out of the south and I had to fight white caps for most of the day. There was no current to speak of so we were getting blown upriver all day. 35-45 FOW and the same jig colors as last week produced the fish. We also went further upriver but had to play ice breaker for about 100 yards as the river was frozen over up near split rock. We also tried near Wilamont creek and Neighborly with no luck. We headed back down river, the wind broke up the ice, to casino flats. All of the chocolate colored water from Long Lake has made it to the mouth of the Arm. We let the wind blow us across casino where Glenn had 2 hits on a jig but nothing to show for it. Our last stop was once again across from 7 Bays where neither jig or blade bait produced a hit after 45 hard minutes of working the flat. Up near Neighborly the water temp was 35.7 and down near Hawk Creek it was 38.

Tomorrow I get to call Safelite and see if their life time crack warranty is really something they support as my front windshield cracked in both directions from a ding they repaired 2 years ago as we slowed down before entering Davenport. I thought maybe something hit my windshield but no it was just the sudden cracking of my windshield from the cold. Warmer spring temp can't come soon enough.

Enjoyed my first outing on Lake Roosevelt yesterday courtesy of Captain Dave Grove. The goal of the day was to test a variety of OG1 lures for the rainbow and kokanee. We launched out of the Keller Ferry Marina around 7:40 am. Water was cold enough that Dave ended up using the bow of his boat to break a sheet of ice that was formed just beyond the launch.

We were accompanied by Rob Holman of NWFR and his associate Paul Hamilton who helped capture the day on video.

Dave’s knowledge of the lake, and the fishery, is pretty remarkable. It’s obvious he knows this water like the back of his hand. In addition, his configuration of side-planers and downriggers let us cover a range of depths with six rods—each pulling different lures or attractor/lure combinations. (The three of us fishing had two-rod permits.) If you’re new to Lake Roosevelt and want to better understand this fishery, I’d highly recommend Captain Dave!

While we didn’t touch a kokanee, the rainbow fishing was good, and the OG1 proved very effective. We managed thirteen hatchery fish and released four wild bows.

The hot lure was a 2.8” OG1 in fluorescent orange. It took the bulk of our fish. Other colors that worked were: 2.44” in fluorescent orange, 2.44” black body with fluorescent pink tail (took our first fish), 1.8” black body with fluorescent orange tail, and 2.8” chartreuse.

We headed for Lake Roosevelt very early Sunday morning, encountered heave fog and freezing temperatures most of the way from Yakima. Took a little longer than normal to make the trip. Started bank fishing near Spring Canyon boat launch about 7 AM. Boats were lined up in the parking lot waiting for someone to break the ice to get out into the main lake. Four of us fished from 7 until about 2:30 and picked up 11 nice rainbows. Two were over 19 inches and a couple were well over 17 inches. Caught them on various color Power Bait. We caught about one fish for every 3 or 4 bites, we fed them well. Color didn't seem to matter. Rained a little, snowed a little and was cold but it was good to be out of the house.

My friend fishdawg and I planned a kokanee trip to Roosevelt for the weekend. We met at the Grand Coulee Center Lodge Motel. What a great setup; even had a space reserved for the pickup and boat all in one piece! The room was great with two separate sleeping areas divided by the bathroom. Clean and comfy just what the doctor ordered!! Flows Café (now Patsies opened at 5:30 AM for us fishermen; yahoo coffee and great breakfast; now for the fishing.

Launched at Spring Canyon and headed out to our first location we wanted to fish. Hit the starter on the T8 and only a click with a puff of smoke from under the cowl....grrr not good. The T* with power start and electric tilt does not have a built in rope starter so we pulled the boat out and went back to the motel to remove the plastic cover covering up the flywheel. Went to the hardware store and got a pull cord and started over for the day. Ran up river and started fishing with four rigs out.

Bryan's was the first to go off on the side planer pulling three colors of lead core. What a kokanee, didn't weigh but it was around five pounds, a whopper for sure! Mean while the other lead core on the planer hits bottom and gets hung up. Now the fun begins....pick up the downriggers, reel in the planer board and run down the hung up line. Got it back, no tackle lost. Back to fishing. I noticed the action did not look correct on one of the three rods out the back of the boat so Bryan checked...oh no. Murphy came to visit again!! This was the biggest snarl of line and tackle I have ever seen: a bushel basket full it seemed. Good thing we carry lots of spare rods! Back to fishing; that koke was the only fish for the day. No love at all for my offerings.

Day two Sunday; another great breakfast now for those fish. headed to Spring Canyon and boats were leaving....what? Found out the launch was blocked in by ice that had blown in. launched at Crescent bay and proceeded up river to fish. Bryan got a nice trout as soon as the first rod was in. Mine never got touched Sunday either. Oh well that's fishing.

Thanks FishDawg for another great time together; now for those pesky fish....next time!!

Bank fishing @ Lincoln mill - a word of caution, don't use Redwine Cyn rd - got in about a mile before having
to shift to 4wd and do a 180 and get out of there - spring breakup and all mud. Best route in is Miles-Creston
to the "Y" - maybe a little longer but solid asphalt.

Water temp 34-35 according to a couple of boats I talked to - trout played a good game called noodle, noodle,
steal-a-meal - score ended trout 11, me 3. Caught on two different set ups - 30" leader, two marshmallows and
a mix of yellow corn/garlic power bait on a small treble. Other set up was aalso a 30" leader, two marshmallow,
and a mix of the yellow/red/white power bait balls on small single hook.

My boat is still snowed in in a gravel storage yard, but melting fast - hope to be on the water again in a couple
of weeks - and there were a lot of boats out on the water too - me envious? you bet !

It has been a while since I've been free to chase after Kokanee at Roosevelt. I have been on maternity leave for the last two months and have enjoyed the time with my growing family and our new baby boy. Yesterday my brother convinced me it was time to get back to work.

We targeted kokanee all day with my usual offerings. Apex, spinners, squidders, and rapalas. All but the Rapalas were quite effective for 3 limits of Rainbows. These bows were quite nice with the largest measuring 21". We only hooked one wild that was released. Most of our trolling was done at 1.5 mph but we caught fish all the way to 2mph.

We did manage to find 2 mid sized kokes. Right away we new these were kokanee. THey seem to like to make a break for the surface shortly after they hit. These both took a pink apex off the downrigger at 14' with a 50' setback. Not a bad way to start the season.

It was a beautiful day on the river and it felt pretty warm when the wind wasn't blowing. Fun to fish with my buddy and my brother. I know we are both looking forward to warmer weather when we can get our kids out on the boat to join the action.

I hope you will consider joining me as we continue our quest for Trophy Lake Roosevelt Kokanee.

Well once again it was pretty muchly just a nice day on the water for the Tin Guppy and crew. Sawyer and I launched at Seven Bays around 8:30 and headed over towards Hawk Creek. Found it to be iced in for the most part. Couldn't get anywhere near the narrows. Managed one RB there and saw what I believe to be a Golden Eagle feeding on a deer carcass . Pretty big bird. We picked up a BIG wild trout down between A Rock and Sterling Point. Didn't seem like I boated as many of them back before when we couldn't keep them. Missed a hit down below Hanson Harbor and picked up 2 more below Keller. I think we went 2 on a pink hoochie and 2 again on my beat up Kekeda fly. That fly seems to work better on my Steelhead rod than on my Kokanee rod. Go figure. Based on how well I have done lately I won't get any fish if lose that one. The launch at Lincoln is open incase some of you were like me and thought is was froze up.

Fished from the bank at the lincoln mills boat launch, moms new favorite spot. Floated the same power bait and marshmallows about 3 feet up from the bottom. Caught 3 all together. Mom finally caught one, after she stole my pole. She swears her pole is cursed so we stopped to buy her a new one on the way home.
