me and my brother decided to make the drive to taylor, we got to the lake at about 10 and we caught afew rainbows on my slip bobber, then we fished for what we came for kokanee, we caught 18 and we only kept one, we caught all our spawners on orange kastmasters and orange krocidiles, we saw the kokes chasing our spoons , i caught one that was 21 inches with a very impressive hump back

I think it is $8 or at least $7...and add that amount again if you want to put your boat...and to think the state stocks the lakes there...that isnt right!...
