Clear Lake Pierce County

In my search for local kokanee lakes I came across Clear Lake in Pierce County. Looks like it gets stocked with about 40, 000/yr. There hasn't been a lot of recent reports here but what from what I saw it looks like it has fallen off in recent years (so has Ward in Thurston). I was wondering if anyo...

Re: Downrigger and Line/Lure Depth

Your 2 cents is probably worth more than my 10 dollars :). I still have not mastered this kokanee thing but I would agree that a expert fisherman who knows what he is doing will out fish someone with more toys. I am still in that 2nd category though. My question wasn't so much about the X2 then abou...

Interesting, and thank you for the reply. Based on the temperature readings I get, 10 ft (even only 5) can make a drastic difference in the preferred temperature zone for kokanee. What you said makes sense. I was recently in a shallow lake and was pulling 'gunk' up on my lures even though I should n...

Downrigger and Line/Lure Depth

I recently bought a Fish Hawk X2 to better track lake temperature for kokanee. However, it has me thinking. The probe can tell the water temp. at the downrigger weight but where exactly is my dodger/lure. For example, If I let out 50/75/100 ft. of line before deploying the weight and then drop 30 ft...

Clear Lake - Thurston County

The description of the lake mentions Kokanee. http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/washington/158/ I thought only Ward and Summit had...
