  • Red Hot Kokanee Bite at Stampede Reservoir

    Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service Jul 5, 2019 | 21:31 pm

    Not many other lakes throughout California can say that 75-100 fish by late morning is the norm.  Non stop action is to be had at the beautiful gem of a reservoir nestled about 15 mins northeast of Truckee.  Currently I’m mainly fishing Stampede Reservoir due to the incredible catch ratio and the lack of heavy […]The post Red Hot Kokanee Bite at Stampede Reservoir appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    7/3/16 Boca Kokanee Clients Rohn and Willow had so much fun at Folsom 3 days ago, they wanted to go fishing again.  This time, the search was for Kokanee.  The hot bite for Boca Kokanee was kept a secret by many locals, myself included, due to the size of the lake and the fact that […]The post Boca Kokanee appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    6/30/16 Folsom Lake Trout A client called me the other day and said he was new to the area and wanted to learn the how to fish for Rainbow Folsom Lake Trout.  I told him that fishing is best May and June when the weather is cooler but I can at least show him the […]The post 6/30/16 Folsom Lake Trout appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    6/20/16 Folsom Lake Trout The Stephan family wanted a little fishing action close to home and chose Folsom Lake.  Since I had not been there in over a month, and a projected 108 degree temperature, I suggested we go up the hill to the high country where its much cooler.  They were going to be taking […]The post 6/29/16 Folsom Lake Trout appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

  • 6/28/16 Kokanee

    Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service Jul 1, 2016 | 15:54 pm

    Today we went to an undisclosed lake in the eastern sierra’s for some Kokanee fishing.  I say undisclosed due to its small size and no plants.  The lake is self sustaining. Clients did not wanna get up at the crack of dawn so I went out early and caught 3 nice Kokanee before they arrived.  Lost […]The post 6/28/16 Kokanee appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    Stampede Kokanee Red sky in morning, sailors take warning. I’d have to agree, with forecasted 20 plus mph winds my clients still wanted to fish. Ugh!! Gonna be a rough one today. But we ended the day with a huge tangle of everyone of our lines but had 10 Kokanee plus a nice cutthroat in […]The post 6/18/16 Stampede Kokanee appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    5/17/16 Kokanee Started off cold this morningand a tough bite.  Marked a ton of fish, they were just not in the mood to bite.  Switch up the presentation and lures a bit and started to catch fish.  Losing a bunch too.  About 9 am, the bite really turned on and we hooked numerous fish but […]The post 6/17/16 Stampede Kokanee appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    Stampede Kokanee Today I had the privilege of taking an Air Force Veteran out on a guided fishing trip for some Stampede Kokanee.  The morning started of cold with a light fog on the water and a very calm breeze.  Beautiful summer time conditions.  But it also started out slow.  It was more than an […]The post 6.26.16 Stampede Kokanee appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    Stampede Kokanee Today  I had the privilege of taking out Mark Fong, a write for the Fish Sniffer magazine, and his buddy on a guided fishing trip to Stampede Reservoir for the famed Stampede Kokanee.  I got there at 4:30 am and was surprised to see that I was not alone.  In fact 3 other boats had […]The post 6.25.16 Stampede Kokanee appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.

    Today’s clients were 2 young children so we got a later start today at Stampede fishing for Kokanee.  There were a lot of boats on the water today but they were fairly scattered when we got there.  We started fishing the area we did well yesterday but it was pretty evident on the sonar that […]The post 6.22.16 Stampede appeared first on Tight Lines Fishing Guide Service.
