Attempted to launch at Keller ferry and the launch is frozen over, 6" of ice all the way to the end of the docks. Tried the low water launch and too much snow to get close to the water. Bummer

Planned an all day trip for Saturday down past the Sanpoil River on Lake Roosevelt with my girlfriend and her dad. I had never been that far south on Lake Roosevelt before so I was real excited to get out there and catch some rainbows.

We left Colville around 4:30AM and got to the "secret" fishing hole at about 7:30AM. In the first 15 minutes we had already caught 3. The bite was pretty consistent but seemed to slow down a bit when the rain would stop. They were hitting on power-bait of all different colors and flavors. Garlic seemed to work the best but they hit corn and salmon egg as well. By 1:30 we had 13 between the 3 of us. If we had hooked up on every single one that bit then we would've probably had over 20.

Going to have a smoker full of trout to do up this weekend!

BIL and I decided to spend our time down south today. Wind was a steady in your face kind of thing most of the day, but this did not hamper the bite. We started at 7 and had our limits by 2. The roads down were clear, however, lots of fog in the am. By the afternoon, it had cleared up and was actually sunny for the trip home.

We were fishing from shore both with 2 poles. both used pretty much a worm on one poll and powerbait on the other pole all day. Both presentations produced consistently.

1 oz. + sinker above a snap swivel with 3-4' leader got it done.

We fished below Keller Ferry. Upon arrival there were only 2 rigs in the parking lot at 8:30. My friend Brian and I were dressed for the cold. But, the breeze would cut right through you. We managed 3 trout each and one Kokanee. Brian picked up the Koke with an orange, J-7 Rapala. The Koke was 18'' and the biggest Bow was 20''. The Bows were picked up with orange or pink flies and the Rapala. We used downriggers at 5-12 feet with 2 rods. We flat lined one rod and used a side winder on one. Our speed varied from 1.5 - 2.5. There were a few other fishin' fools out there. But, we didn't see any nets flying.
We had good roads to travel both to and from. Fog was very tiring to drive in getting there. I had concerns of de-icer getting on my new boat.
We saw deer, turkeys, ducks, geese and Bald eagles.
The one major glitch we had occurred at the launch. All 4 tires were frozen solid at the disc brakes! The trailer bucked, bunny hopped and slid all the way to the water! After that it was trouble free. I'll carry a small propane torch in the future.
It was good to be able to scratch that itch!

Got to the Keller launch kind of late. There was a bunch of rigs the already. Launched and headed up. Got lines in the water and boated a trout right off. Then we trolled for a while with nothing and finally found a few more. We were trolling along and all of a sudden a rod bent double. Looked back and seen a fish out of the water. Fought it for a little while and finally got in in the net!!! Yay! A 24in. 4.49lb Kokanee! Wow what a fish! Ended the day with 10 trout and the 1 Kokanee. Fished with the usual dodger and flies tipped with corn. Trolling speed was 1.5 to 2.0. What an awesome day!

The first bite came after maybe five minutes, however it took another ten before I was sure the fish was hooked.  Light taps and then slack!  When it surfaced I knew it was mine!  While I took it up to the truck the other rod was hit so hard the rod holder tipped over.  This fish was 19 1/2 inches and 3.3 pounds.  I caught a twin of the first 14 incher and the bite was off and the wind was cold!

The trip to Keller this morning was unique. The normal trio left home with the temp 25*. Near Soap Lake the wind was blowing and it was 40*. An hour later at Wilbur it was -3*. 20* at Keller almost seemed like a heat wave. We were the first rig at the launch but 5 more arrived before we got in the water proving we were not the only crazies.

We had lines in the water by 8:30. Fishing for us was like the fluctuating temperature. Long spells of nothing with a quick 1 or 2 fish. We offered plugs, flies and hoochies but the only thing that yielded fish were pink and orange Kekeda flies behind dodgers. We ended up with 5 RBT and 2 very nice Kokes at 21 inches each. All the fish came off the DRs at 5-14 feet except one RBT that hit while letting the line out. Water temp was 42* and speed 2.0- 2.4 MPH.

The scenery definitely was more spectacular than the fishing today. As usual it was another great day on the water to end another year with great fishing buddies. Happy New Year to All!

Despite the snow on Monday night we headed out to Roosevelt for some Winter rainbows on Tuesday. It took us a little longer to get down and launched being loaded up with the camper and pulling the boat. After setting up camp at Ft. Spokane and looking at the launch (icy and weighing 10,000 pounds didn't sound like a good idea with that steep ramp) we decided to head over to Seven Bays to launch, which was a great choice. The plow had just finished and it was freshly sanded, easy launch. We had planned to start fishing right out of the marina towards Hawk Creek. The wind was blowing pretty good coming from that direction so we decided to motor down to the mouth of Hawk Creek and drift troll back. It was a good choice not fighting that wind. Had a perch Kekeda and an orange Kekeda already on the rods so out they went, 7 ft. on one and 12 ft. on the other. Not more than 5 minutes later our first fish hit on the perch. Then three more on the perch and nothing on the orange. Finally the orange got a hit and after a short fight it was in the net. Too short a fight actually. There wasn't nearly enough line on this rod. So I swapped it out for one of the backups with more line and the orange starts getting into the fish as well. Had 9 fish in the boat by the time we trolled back to the marina so we just kept on going. Hit one right in front of the marina logs and then a double not more than 50 yards after that. We kept trolling on down to the mouth of the Spokane and across towards Hunters. Didn't make it more than 1/4 mile along that stretch and we all had our limits. We ended up putting one native back along with three of the smaller ones that swam off just fine. Biggest fish was pushing 20" with several 18's and the rest the typical 16 inchers. Took us a little over three hours to get our limits. They are fat and feisty with the water temp finally below 40 degrees.

Gear for the day was a perch and an orange Kekeda. Both on downriggers with a chunk of worm. One at 7 ft. and the other between 10 and 12 feet. Speed was between 2.3 and 2.6 with the water temp between 37 and 39 degrees. We did get a lot of hits when we sped up a little so speed changes could have been a trigger for them. We were out over 80 to 120 feet of water most of the time and then we'd hit the points of the little bays along the way.

Got back to camp, lit a big fire to warm up, roasted some sausages over the fire and had a great time camping with my brother and friend. How could I not rate it a 5!

Lake Roosevelt Keller Ferry. sorry for late report. December 17 was a good day to be out on the water. i did not see anybody else out. wonder why haha. we had the lake to our selves. temps were in upper teens but hardly any wind. thank the Lord for buddy heaters. we started late, waited for fog to clear up. fished camels head/ bay area from 12 to 5pm. landed 2 beautiful kokanee in the boat. lost a few as well. we had a total of 11 fish. 9 trout and 2 kokanee. had 4 rods out, 2 on DR at 8 and 11 feet. other rod had a fly and rapala. 2 mph seemed to work best for us. water temp was 39 . i was going to rate this a 4 but the park rangers asked me to remove my wall tent from the campground. anyways see you guys soon. Kokanee fishing should be good this year again.
Lets make fishing great again! - konstantin

Friend Ron and I watched the weather reports all week wondering if we would be able to make it out to Roosevelt on the weekend. Sunday just maybe Sunday the snow would let up and it wouldn't be too windy or cold. Left my house around 7 with snow on the road and a temperature of 25 degrees. Stopped for boat gas in Airway Heights and I noticed something missing...the sonar! Love the new Garmin with the quick release feature; only problem is I left it home!! Now what to do? Do we go back and get it and lose an hour of fishing time or just truck on without it. We decided to fish known waters without it.

Found fog up past Fairchild on highway 2 and some slick road to test the new studded snow tires on. Glad to report they worked great and got us to the Fort Spokane launch without slipping and sliding. As we pulled into the park we immediately notice there were no rigs in the parking lot...not a good sign maybe the steep ramp was too icy? It was plowed out with only an inch or so of new snow over what looked like compact snow that had been sanded. Now for the ultimate tire test putting the boat in. The tires did a great job again and the boat was in the water without a problem. Touched the key and the E-Tec fired right up and took us out to the mouth of the confluence where we decided to start fishing in known waters. The water was glass smooth and the heater was keeping us warm now for some fish.

Ron put on his Canadian spoon and it had not been out two minutes when he got the first fish. Then he got anther on his second rod and I didn't have a rod in the water yet! I finally put Ron to work driving so I could get in the water. We experimented with tackle and finally settled on Ron's orange black flies tied by his son in law and my orange and orange /red Kekedas. Finished our limit by 1:00 pm what a great day of fishing. Also safely released a 5# plus Red Band trout; what a beauty he was!! Three colors lead core and 2 mph did the trick. 18' on the wire also worked.
