I had some doubts about going to Keller and trolling for kokanee on Lake Roosevelt last Thursday. The fact that it wasn’t going to be snowing and there wasn’t going to be much wind made that particular day the best choice for the week. The reason for hesitation was that there was a full moon and a big shift in temperature. This combination has worked against me in the past. Still, I talked Tom Verschueren into making the long drive to Keller. We ran from the launch up to a spot above the mouth of the San Poil. There were a bunch of boats here when we arrived. The first one that passed near us yelled that the fishing was very slow. We had just put out our gear and actually got a fish fairly soon. It was a red band rainbow that we released. We got several hits, lost a couple of fish and retrieved Kokabow blades and spinners that had been striped of corn, and released another red band. I decided to run down to Camel Nose to see if it was better down there. Tom reeled in a nice rainbow that I kept for dinner and we headed for home.
