Kokanee are starting to stay in deeper water. Anglers should focus on trolling for Kokanee around 40 to 50 feet in the mornings and around 70 to 80 feet in the evenings. Smallmouth bass fishing has been consistent near logger campground and anywhere on the east side of the lake. Shore anglers fishing for trout should try powerbait, worms off the bottom, kastmasters, or rapalas.  Watch for evening thunderstorms here because this area receives frequent lightning strikes. Stampede Reservoir is currently at 59% capacity.
