Stampede did not disappoint

Stampede Reservoir - Truckee, CA (Sierra County)

by James Netzel

Yesterdays scouting mission was a tough one and I was concerned about todays trip but Stampede did not disappoint with boat limits of kokanee to 15”. Most in the 14” range. Bite was weird but Paulina Peak Tackles pink lemonade early, then watermelon UV late morning, back to pink lemonade. When it was one color, that’s all they wanted and switched 3 rods to that color, then had to switch to all watermelon, then back to all pink lemonade. Speed 1.2 gps speed 40-55’ otw in deep water. A few took the line outta my hand while attaching to downrigger so I’m sure you can get em on top too.
