by Mountain Hardware & Sports
(530) 587–4844

Kokanee fishing has really picked up at Stampede reservoir. The recent warm weather has caused the bigger Kokanee to start schooling together more. Anglers have been having the most success with Kokanee around 20 feet in depth. Pink, orange, or purple colored lures have produced some of the best Kokanee. Anglers are also now finding decent size Cutthroat Trout due to the consistent stocking done over the years. Fishing with humdingers and criplers around 20-40 feet in depth can produce nice size cutthroat. The reservoir level is currently at 80% capacity.


Off Shore: 1/4oz Kastmasters, pink/orange/purple colors, panther martins, Chartreuse powerbait or worms off the bottom
Trolling: Hoochies and dodgers in pink, wedding rings, koke-a-nuts, humdingers, rapalas, lymans, flashers and a worm
