Does anyone know when it may come on and if so where they go?
Thanks for any info
Don't forget, "may be" is always accompanied by its dark twin, "may not be".
I don't know when the Kokanee will get active at Carter. I have been there several times over the last two weeks trolling the usual koke stuff at various depths - wedding ring spinners tipped with shoepeg corn, little pink spoons and jigs, Kokanee Killer "e-chip" lures, etc. and never saw a sign of a koke. So for sure, it is too early for them right now.
One thing I do know, water around 50° is their favorite environment, and right now it is running closer to 64° (surface) so they are still going to be deep. When the surface temp. is cold enough, they will come up shallow, and you can see schools of them in the early mornings, raising hell on the surface and jumping out of the water. Look for them right in front of the dams, it seems to be a favorite place.
