Was fishing wolford with my son and a friend, and my son caught the biggest wolford Kokanee I have ever seen. It was twice the size of our next biggest--it looked like it came out of Blue Mesa. He is only 4 years old and already showing me up.
Thanks to all that replied. Sparky fishing was fair for most, but nobody we talked to was really crushing them. We had an average day on our boat for this time of year. They are deep, we saw most around 60' to 70'
They are deep right now, so you need to use a technique that can get you down there. If you have downriggers, that is probably the best way to troll for them-- keep your gear at around 60' deep. Lead core, snap weights and Dipsy divers also work, but you sacrifice feel and can loose fish more easily. Most people troll using dodgers and pop gear tipped with white shoepeg corn. Corn alone will work but you can try scenting it with krill oil, garlic, anis, whiskey or coffee... there are dozens of scents people claim work well. Over the next week I would YouTube research Kokanee trolling techniques and you will learn far more than I can tell you here. Green and pink colors have been good this year... They are essentially spawning now so they are not spread out as much... if you find them stick to that area.
