Default Kokanee @ Carter

I was listening to Terry Wickstroms show this morning and he says that Carter may be good this fall for Kokes.

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.

Thank you a ton. I figured it would be too early still, but I am just trying to figure out some close to home ideas for my 10 year old and his great grandpa. It sounds like fishing has been slow overall for the last month or so, but picking up. I have been archery hunting, which makes me a nonfishing fool.

Kokes at Carter are hard to catch. They mostly hang out around dam #1 but I've caught them throughout the hole lake. The best thing about Carter is there's a strong possibility of having open ice year round.
