Some buddies and I decided to fish Keller on Wednesday and I am glad we did, because the weather was beautiful. The water was flat calm most of the day which made spotting rising kokes quite easy. This time of year its hard to sonar fish on the surface, so I am always thankful when these fish decide to give away their location. Apex have been working great for me lately along with spinners with smile blades. Troling 1.7 mph seems to be my go to speed, but the last few trips I have hooked up doubles just after I kill the throttle to fight the fish.

I still can't get over the quality of these fish. Every one has been just gorgeous and worth the effort. I am enjoying this fishery very much (in spite of a 2 koke un-clipped limit), and am looking forward to fishing it this summer when these fish will be 2-3 inches larger.

Please contact me if you are considering a trip to Roosevelt. I have really affordable rates and would like to share my knowledge with you about this fishery.

Thanks for the great report and pictures. 100 % agreement on the quality of these Kokanee, just looking at the pictures gets me feeling good. Don't know why but 1.7 seems to be my goto speed also. Have tried everything from 1 to 3 but get most of my hits at 1.7. Glad you had a calm day, my previous 2 trips have been blustery to say the least. Yesterday was calm and nice but I didn't see any jumping down at Spring Canyon.
