I looked at the lake level graph for Lake Roosevelt and the water level is dropping sharply. This is great news for those who like to fish for the giant kokanee that are showing up in the big reservoir this year. It looks like the kokanee fishing is going to as good or better than it was four years ago, when the last really big fish were being caught with great frequency on Roosevelt. I checked in with Austin Moser, who has been fishing for kokanee on Roosevelt since December, and he reports that the action has really picked. He is limiting most days and says that anglers are catching fish now from Keller all the way down to Grand Coulee Dam. The fish are still very shallow, and he is pretty much fishing right on top, with the blades from Kokabow, without any weight on his side planers. Anglers using downriggers aren’t dropping their gear lower than 10 feet. It looks like we’re in for another great winter for fishing giant kokanee on Lake Roosevelt. So, grab your Kokabow Tackle blades and spinners, get a can of white shoe peg corn and Graybill’s Guide Formula and get up there!
