I am planning some fishing trips that will include kokanee fishing, walleye fishing and even sturgeon fishing on Lake Roosevelt. I want to get back to Lake Chelan, and learned something on my last trip. The combination that worked best for me was the Kokabow Watermellon blade and a Ravisher spinner. The Watermellon blade was one of the first I ever used from Kokabow. I looked at some of the photos of the big kokanee we were catching on Lake Roosevelt a couple of years ago, and the Watermellon was in the photos. I know that it is important to try new things, and I have certainly had great sucess fishing with other colors of blades, spinners and squid rigs from Kokabow, but sometimes it’s a good thing to go back to basics. I also found that plain scented corn worked better than stained corn. That’s why I always have both along on my kokanee fishing trips. My next kokanee adventure may be to Alta Lake, near Pateros. I had great luck there last season, and also had fun catching largemouth bass after limits of kokanee were in the cooler. I want to try the Conconully lakes again soon, too.
