Kokanee fishing at Stampede just never slows down

Stampede Reservoir - Truckee, CA (Sierra County)

by James Netzel

Kokanee fishing at Stampede just never slows down. Big fish to 17” plus and cutting great. Did have a couple lighter fillets but most are still a deep orange. Bite is slow in the dark but soon as the fish start to school, it’s game on. Paulina Peak Tackle pink lemonade, clown, and cotton candy 6”-8” behind p lite dodgers at 70’-110’ trolled at 1.2 SOG.
