For, I'm Eric Granstrom. Last week on the Wenatchee Fisherman's Forum, I saw a post from Larry Toth saying he'd caught kokanee at Deep Lake. I'd never been there and suggested to Marion we try it, so after volunteering at the Youth Hunting and Fishing Day last Saturday, we headed northeast towards Coulee City. Deep Lake is part of the Sun Lakes State Park complex and is a small, basalt canyon-lined body of water that holds kokanee, trout and mackinaw. There's a paved, single-boat launch with a dock and parking for about 20 trucks and trailers. It's a state park, so the launch fee is $7. Interestingly, plying the waters north you'll see numbers painted on the basalt walls up to 9. We trolled between 4 and 7 in 60-to-100 feet of water at a depth of 25-to-45 feet deep using Kokabow blades and Kokabow spinners and Mack's Lure kokanee hoochies. What an incredible day we had with barely enough time to sit down. One fish after another came over the rail, each between 9-and-14 inches long. Thanks for the hot tip Larry. Head to our Facebook page to see our video. Until next time, Good Fishing!
