Snake Inlet

Post By: Buho      Posted: 11/8/2022 12:50:09 PM     Points: 108    
I am hopping that this year will be ice at the snake inlet. Does anyone know if they lower the water level and the inlet is just a creek this year. That would be a sad thanksgiving week again if there is not enough water. Any updates will be greatly appreciated.

Thank very much Matt. Will appreciate it if you can share the updates. Are you from the area?

I am not from the area, a buddy and I just go fishing every Monday or Tuesday. Had another friend up there for work today and he is saying itís still skim and open in spots, so that being said Iím gonna try going up there the following week now.

Sorry for the late update. Ice is about 8 inches as of yesterday, Koke bite is finally on. 40+ in a few hours.

New to kokanee, any recommendations on depth to look at?

edorrian . . .if the kokes are on the bite,just find the crowd . . .depth will vary,but anything from 4ft up to about 15 ft has been the depth for me.The kokes from Dillon are kind of stunted . . .
