Another deck full of Stampede kokanee

Stampede Reservoir - Truckee, CA (Sierra County)

by James Netzel

Another deck full of Stampede kokanee. There was an armada today all fishing within 100 yds. If they would spread out a bit, fishing would be easier. My technique for today was do my best to stay outta the way. Just skirt around the edges In open water. Then I found a pod of fish shallower holding to structure and filled the box there. Was nice when wind picked up and everyone left. That’s when the bite really took off!! Paulina Peak Tackle pink lemonade was best hoochie by far followed by clown. Clients wanted to sleep in and start at 7 so that made for a long morning. But we had a blast!!!
