I would like to try to target Kokes thru the ice but I have no idea where to start regarding location or presentation

Yup. Live in Dillon, Dillon Valley and Silverthorne for 5 years. Man those Kokanee can pull! Great memories of the Resevoir, Blue River and Straight Creek. The company I wok for has an office in Denver and I want to figure a way to get sent there for a week. You can bet that I would find a way to get back to my old stomping grounds.

I had a great day fishing kokes on Sunday (22nd) here in Utah (Causey Res.) Was using a red glow devil, and for the vast majority of the fish, not even tipping it. I started out w/ a glow devil and a small rat finkee dropper tipped with a waxworm, but after the fish started to hit the glow devil as much as the waxie, I just took off the dropper. The key was finding the fish with the flasher, then drop the spoon into them. A friend and myself brought about 40 of 'em up thru the ice in about an hour and a half (admittedly, not typical, but just have to brag a bit about a good day!) Nonetheless, they were pretty easy once we found them. They seemed to be wandering in large schools, often the flasher would mark fish throughout nearly the entire water column.

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
