The Fish Sniffer - Mother Lode Roundup
Mother Lode Roundup

Written By: Dan Bacher, May 26, 2014
Species: Kokanee
Location: Pardee Reservoir,

Some days are better than others, as Lake Pardee koke anglers find a wide-open bite one day and the next day struggle for limits.

 “A few fishermen around the Mud Hole, Porcupine Point, Launch Ramp and Stoney Point Landing report slow trout action this past week,” said Fred Dorman at Lake Pardee Marina. “White or chartreuse PowerBait with sparkles, eggs with garlic or orange mice tails are bringing in some trout.  Crappie are still taking red worms across the lake.”

“Mixed kokanee reports show sub limits coming in near Deer Island one day and a solid bite the next,” said Dorman. “Boaters working the face of the dam and the river mouth for trout and kokanee have begun to go deeper into the 30-50 foot depths.  Uncle Larry’s spinners in pink or white/pink hoochies are a good bet. Red Needlefish were hot recently just outside the Narrows, so they are probably worth a try as well.”

Lake Pardee is at 74% of capacity.
