    Re: Lake Tahoe Kokanee

    They normally have a set date as to when they pulse flows out of Fallen Leaf Lake to draw the fish into Taylor Creek. It is normally the first week of October, but I can confirm that for sure. Until then, the kokanee will be stacked up north of Camp Richardson to Emerald Bay. When the massive schools start forming you can jig on them using really small buzz bombs or kastmasters...really fun.

    Re: Lake Tahoe Kokanee

    I went out a few weeks ago with a friend of mine in the morning and we had 3 limits by 8:30. He's been going out 3-4 times a week and getting quick limits. It's still way to early for them to be in Taylor Creek. Maybe at the end of September, last year they didn't show until mid October.

    Re: Lake Tahoe Kokanee

    Gave it a try from my kayak on 7/20. Fished from Taylor to the Keys, yet no takers.
    Marked a few solitary fish in the 20-25' depth. Pulled all my tried and true patterns. 5 or 6 boats out, yet no nets swinging. Called it about 9:30A

    Scoped out Sugar Pines Pt. And portage/launching is a possibility for a yak from the south end.
    I'll store that for next year...

    Re: Lake Tahoe Kokanee

    The bite is picking up but they're still spread out in this huge lake. Last year the early hot bite was off Suger Pine Point and not to many new about it.

    Re: Lake Tahoe Kokanee

    I fished Tahoe last week to no avail on Kokes. I fished the Richardson beach area in 100-200 ft of water as well as Emerald Bay; I fished for approximately 3 hours. I did speak with another boat that said he'd caught 3 this season. He caught them 20-30 ft. down. I also spoke to a guide afterword who thought it would be another two weeks or so before the bite really turned on. My son and I fished 3 rods, two between 20-35 ft for kokanee and one deep for Macks. We did hook up on Macks. I think it will be hot in August as the river flows are excellent right now coming out of Taylor Creek.
