Trnity Lake and Whiskeytown Kokanee


Well-known member
So I took up a new fishery the last few weeks . The wife and I first went to Whiskeytown Lake. We trolled and ended up with 8 fat Kokanees , the largest was right at 18 inches. That is big for a Koke. We did not stay longer to fill our limits because of the high winds which made it very tough to troll.

Yesterday , I went out with a friend Jake who broke his back a couple months back . He is still in a big "turtle shell" and is going NUTS staying at home. He invited his dad along . We would just let Jake reel in fish if we caught some . This time we fished Trinity Lake . They just increased the limit on salmon ( Kokanee or Kings ) to 10 per person !
We stopped at 20 fish in the box. We lost a solid 12-15 fish . 18 Kokes and 2 Kings. The Kokes averaged about 15".

If you want to do some catching, NOW is the time ! Get out there ! It should be hot for another month or so .

I have the fillets brining now for smoking .

Some great days on the water !

Great report. Whiskeytown is one of my favorite lakes, but like you experienced, it does get some breeze in the afternoon. The Water is clean like Evian.
