It had been a while since I had checked in with Lou Nevismal at Coulee Playland on Banks Lake. I wondered what he was seeing in terms of activity in his area. Well, not much in the way of walleye fishing on the big impoundment. Although the weather has been warm, with many days with temperatures hitting 40 degrees, but high winds have kept anglers off the water. I asked about the fishing for the big whitefish that occurs at this time of year. He said that there was a lot of activity in that arena. Anglers have been fishing from the dike at the very top end of the lake, mostly at night. There are some that fish the bay across from the Northrup launch, but again this had been hampered by high winds. He reminded me that the net pen, where kokanee were being raised in previous years, has been pulled. He did say that he is getting lots of good reports of excellent fishing for rainbow trout on Lake Roosevelt. Also, there are some very big kokanee being caught on Roosevelt, too. Not a whole bunch but dandies when anglers get them.
Trolling big Rapalas is a fun way to catch big rainbow on Lake Roosevelt
