Kokanee are a landlocked Sockeye Salmon. They act like Salmon, they are a schooling fish, they are scent and color oriented and will go on a bite and just as quickly shut off! Like many species, the size of the baits do not really correlate to the size of fish so trying to create big baits doesn't particularly work well but at times down sizing your presentation seems to help catch more fish.
Being finicky plankton eaters, the best colors for Kokanee should revolve around greens and chartreuses, which do work well but it seems that the best colors seem to revolve around silvers and pinks. Kokanee will follow the food chain-like any other fish, according to water temperature where the plankton is at a given time of day, types of currents in the reservoir they can be found on the surface to as deep as a 200 feet.
