Kokes deep at Stampede

Stampede Reservoir - Truckee, CA (Sierra County)


by Nor Cal Fish Reports
7-2-2015

Lake is at 17% capacity. Surface temp is 70 degrees here, which is driving the Kokes deeper now. Fishing has picked up for Rainbows here, especially in the LT arm, and toplining for Kokanee has been great for those who can launch their boats. There is a new launch site now east of the old launch. Old launch east of original boat launch is now to shallow! Reports of most Kokes ranging in the 14-16 inch range. Best spot has been the creek channel of the LT arm in about 30-35 feet and bumping the bottom. Pink and Orange have been the go to colors here with Green and Yellow variations also picking up some fish in the mornings. In the PM with the sun on the water try some darker colors such as Purple, Blue and Black. Go deeper later and shallow in the AM. Shore fishing has been good for the Bows with powerbait, nightcrawlers, and various hardware. Smallies are suspended along shelves in the Davis Creek arm and most are being taken on suspending baitfish patterns, Crayfish patterns, and various Jigs worked down these shelves. Some big smallies here, but you'll have to work hard for them. Mountain Hardware (530) 587-4844
