Headed up to 11 mile yesterday, got there at 7:30am. Hired a guide to put us on the kokanee since we haven't fished for them before. Ended up being a pretty nice day. Fished for 3 1/2 hours. Ended up catching 3 rainbows and 3 kokanee. Rainbows ranged from 12-15 inch. Kokanee were 8-14 inch. All of the fish were caught by down rigging. Caught all the fish on small pink spoons in about 30 ft of water on the northeast and south side of the lake.

PICTURES= REPLIES

You can post a report of catching one fish all day and picture showing only one nice size fish and get a good amount of replies.

IMO

cofisher_ i was wondering if you saw or fished for northerns, when i was at elevenmile i saw lots of surface activity by the inlet in this swampy cove, i hate the wind up there it screwed up my chances at some top water hits

Kokanee King,

We did fish for northerns for a hour at a small cove at the far souteast side of the lake next to those bouys that tell you can't fish beyond that point. We threw large ralpalas and spinnerbaits at them but didn't get any luck. I did see alot of fish surfacing all around the lake, couldn't tell what they were though. I heard that shore fisherman are having luck with the northerns on the south side of lake in the evenings using a variety of methods.

Slayerfish,

I did see those reports. The thing is we wanted to go after the Kokanee but it was a unfamilar lake to us and we don't have a boat so it was either rent a boat there and buy all the proper equipment. Or for about a $100 more we could get a guide who would take us on his boat, put us on the fish, supply all the equipment, and provide PLENTY of information about the lake. So in the end it was a pretty good deal.

_Colorado,

The guides name is Larry I can't remember what his last name is. His son Alex took us out on the lake. Couple of real nice guys and gave us plenty of information. They actually own that building at the marina and thats where they run the guideservice and have a website. Their email address is [email protected]

Good job on the fish, You only paid about 33 dollars a fish. LArry Folk charges like 200 for a half day or something like that. Now you know where to catch them. ;D
