Website day today at Stampede for Kokanee 15”-16+”.  There was a big traffic jam out on Dog Valley Road that put us on the water after 6am but with the hot bite, it didn’t matter.  Purple and pink, pink n chartreuse, pink n blue, and chartreuse n orange worked equally with tuna flavored sho peg corn trolled between 35-55’ at 1.2mph.  Seeing lotta people struggle then when they show me their set ups, they are running their hoochies too far behind dodgers.  8”-12” has been working great.  3’ is way way way too far behind dodger.  And micro is the key in hoochie selection.  That’s why glitterbugs work so well.  They are all micro hoochie.  You can find these Lures at Will Fish Tackle in Auburn or online at

I still have room this week.  Call me toll free at 888-875-0990 or book online at
