Eric Magnuson invited Bob Loomis and Rich Harrod to try jigging for Kokanee in the dark, a unique method to say the least. Loon Lake in eastern Washington was the setting, the wildfire smoke turned the sunset orange, and the Kokanee were snappy after sundown.
Idaho may not be the first place that comes to mind for trophy size Kokanee, but the Gem State harbors some hidden silver. Bob and Robin Shindelar have been enjoying the fishing in southern Idaho for many years and Anderson Ranch Reservoir has become one of their favorite Kokanee hotspots.
Lake Roosevelt is the stretch of the Columbia River above Grand Coulee Dam. This huge body of water extends over 150 miles to the Canadian border and provides Northwest fisherman with abundant trout, kokanee, walleye, bass, and other game fish.
Harrod Outdoors and Mack’s Lure began working together 10 years ago on a very special fishing trip to Wallowa Lake in eastern Oregon. The guys caught trophy sized Kokanee and solidified a relationship that has stood the test of time. Now, we return to Wallowa Lake to remember the past and build new memories.
