I met Alan Greenhalgh, owner of Kokabow Fishing Tackle and Jim Paine at the boat launch in Keller for our annual fishing trip on Lake Roosevelt. Alan had landed a 25 ½-inch kokanee the day before and we were looking for another giant. We started our day a little differently. They had brought some crawdad traps and bait and were planning on crawdad boil that evening. Alan was about to drop the pots when Jim saw two otters slip into the water. Needless to say, we weren’t going to put our pots where these critters could rob them. We found another bay nearby and then off we went to the kokanee fishing grounds. Jim piloted the boat to Plum Point, which is above Spring Canyon Park and we started trolling with primarily orange colored Kokabow blades and spinners. Alan is always experimenting with colors and when he switched to pink colors we got bit. We got one kokanee here, lost two, and moved to Swawilla Basin. Got another kokanee here and lost another one. We ended the day near Camel Nose with another kokanee and, get this, a walleye. What a great day of fishing with these two. We had a ball.
