So there must be a self sustaining population. I'd like to imagine there is a miniature version of Alaska going on with bears waiting for tiny sockeyes to run up the tribs to spawn.

I never caught a Kokanee but knew guys years ago who did target them. They said they were tough to catch, but well worth it as table fare. Meat is bright reddish orange and delicious. But, I never tried them.Did you keep and eat it? If so, how was it? Just wondering...

Wildbrookies: I was trolling really slow with a spoon and it hit it and ran but didn't put up a fight really. I think he was as surprised as I was. I didn't keep it as I didnt know what it was at the time. I was targeting browns and Brookies. Last thing I thought it was was a salmon. I let him back
