Fair Fishing at the Blue

Two of us fished for 5 hours till wind came. We landed 6 jokes and 1 small laker. Used downrigger at 40 feet with orange Arnie's. Caught 3 within 15 minutes as we entered Bay of Chickens from Elk Creek Marina. Then it got slow. We traveled near jigging boats (near the Iron Works) but only saw one fish caught. We returned to the area we caught the first fish and picked up the laker and and 3 more kokes, then the wind. Not our best day of fishing for kokanee this year but still better then working.
