After some days off I had heard that the bite had slowed down and the size was smaller at Stampede.  Well, the Kokanee did not get the message.  Ended up with 3 limits to over 16” by 8am.  Tried to drag the day on a little later by going to where I thought the fish were not and ended up with doubles, triples, and 2 quads.  Paulina Peak Tackle Purple Haze and Lemonade still top producers.  But pink n purple held their own too. has all these colors in stock online.
