Snake River Inlet

Post By: Friscosquid      Posted: 12/20/2018 12:59:48 PM     Points: 0    
Hello Everyone,
I was wondering if anyone has fished the snake river inlet yet this year, or at least what is is left of it? Anyone fish where there is some deeper water on the snake arm, if so any luck?

There was a previous post on this already. It is not fishable this year. Not enough water flowing.

I know about the previous posts, but I am still curious if anyone has been there recently. Even though the river is pretty much dry does not mean the snake arm of the Dillon reservoir is dry. Has anyone been out there or fished the hard water in the snake river arm of Dillon reservoir?

Friscosquid, the lake is down far enough there isn't any water in the snake river arm. The area normally fished is dry. From my understanding there isn't water until almost the main lake.

I'll be up that way tomorrow fishing. If we have time I'll get off the highway and do a drive by.

Fished Snake River Inlet 12/16. We caught mostly Bows with a couple of Kokes 300 yards lakeside of the normal koke grounds. We were in 14 ft of water most of the time. There was a couple of guys chasing kokes inlet side of us in around 7 feet of water. They said they caught 15 or so kokes by chasing schools around with a flasher. 8 inches of good ice everywhere we drilled.

Any size to the kokes? Were the bows in good shape or still on the skinny side?

Saw the report up above se we stayed on the highway. From the highway the lake is obviously low but also looked to be quite a bit of open water on the lake still.

Hello Goosehunter,
Did you see anyone ice fishing when you drove by?

No but most of what we saw was open water.

Hit the Snake River inlet again this morning 12/21. With some help from friends fished closer to the inlet than last time and got on the Kokes. We limited throwing back females and got a nice fat 16 inch bow to boot. Kokes size was definitely better than last year. 10-12 inches and fat (for kokes) for most
