Have the Kokes moved in?

Has anyone been to Wolford for the spawners yet this year. I am curious if the jokes have moved in to shore yet. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I usually start checking it around mid October. The past couple years there has been a round of smaller ones spawning and then a couple weeks later the big ones come in. Not sure why.

So, do the kokes not run up an inlet? If they don't, where do they go?

They go to where they were dumped in the lake.

CWP will be setting the Koke trap on or about the 16th of this month and the egg collection is going to start on Friday the 18th. They will be doing the trap on the folling Monday,wensday and Friday again.

If you want an easy Koke go throw a nymph rig in the dream stream. The Kokes look super cool right now.

Spec. Go to Wolford at the boat ramp area or dam. Use a pink tube jug about 5 feet under a slip bobber and rip it with either shrimp or a wax worm. Use a lighter bobber that is more sensitive as the bites are sometimes subtle. By the way the likes have started.

Im also tring to stay within 3 hrs from colorado springs as one ill be leaving about 8-9 and 2 i want more line in water time instead of drive time.
