I am getting a chance to fish Lake Roosevelt for big kokanee and rainbow later this week. My buddy Kevin Witte invited me to come up to Spring Canyon and jump on his boat for the day. You may have seen the videos I have done with Kevin earlier this year. We were fishing for northern pike off the mouth of the Colville River, and I landed a walleye that weighed around 14 pounds. We got a bunch of nice walleye trolling along the shore later on. I went back up later in the summer and got a sturgeon that was just short of the slot limit and released it. I always enjoy spending time on Kevin’s boat and am really looking forward to this trip. As an avid angler I am always optimistic about how we are going to do. I have seen some photos of great catches of big kokanee with some very nice rainbow sprinkled in. I have been watching the graph of the lake level for Lake Roosevelt, and it is going down. That means that the daphnia that the big kokanee feed on are moving down the reservoir. Our timing could be just right for catching some giant kokanee.
The water level on Lake Roosevelt is dropping, and that brings the feed that kokanee love down the reservoir.
