we left at 4 in the morning, we got to taylor at 7:45 and got one rainbow, then hooked and landed a 22 inch laker, saw kokes purpose in som deep water way out of my reach from shore, i saw some of the biggest lake trout ive ever seen about 20 pounds swiming by shore, they were true monsters had hits on spawn sacks and sucker meat but failed to land them

went to the east river and in this one spot there was red kokaee everywhere, i caught seven , my brother caught eight and my freind caught acouple, they were really red and nailed my pink taz, the sad part was seeing all the dead kokes on the bottom, i walked up river and saw lots of dead kokes, who knows how much longer they will live, its sad to see such a good fish go to waste, but you cant keep um until november 1st up there and by then there wont be many left

ps i love gunnison

yes the lakers do eat kokanee, they stock atleast a million kokes a year in blue mesa but you never see that many come up to spawn, only being stocked as fingerlings most are swept up by bigger fish

even though lakers eat kokes it balances the population out, if you have to many kokes you will have smaller fish, the food chain has a way of balanceing everything out
