Kokanee in early spring

Wondering if any of you have much luck with the Kokanee this time of year and if anyone can give me an idea of where I might have some luck?

Right now they are shallow. Less than 40fow

Look for the boats trolling around each other or find rock ledges.

Buckboard, lost dog, pipe line, brinagers rancho are good areas now

Fishing is unseasonably good. Anglers are catching kokanee while trolling in 1030 feet of water on dodgers and pink squids. Use planer boards to troll shallower water and get the offering away from the boat. You may graph schools deeper in the middle of the day. If you do, use downriggers or lead-core line to troll for the deeper fish. When the fish are in a large concentration, some anglers have successfully caught them while vertically jigging small spoons tipped with Gulp maggots
