Heading to Payette Lake for a few days next week in McCall. Anyone been seeing any action up there. Lake trout, kokes, perch?

Ponderosa state park - troll from boat dock to point about 4 colors (20-25 feet deep— lots of Kokanee (10-20” long).
Caught 3 yesterday and limit (6) today.
Early morning bite!

Lots of boats out on the lake trolling. I was in the family pontoon boat so not fishing. Trollers that said they were catching Kokanee said they were trolling at 25ft. Not sure about that as most boats were not equipped with downriggers.

I caught 3 on thursday after work, not very deep 7-12 feet is all, one nice 15"er. Just finished putting up 20 jars. My son went Anderson last weekend and slaughtered them. They were all big and fat...

Is the Kokanee bite better in the morning or evening? I see a number of boats trolling around the Ponderosa boat ramp. Any fish up around the opening to Pilgrim Cove?

I've only been able to fish in the evening. I haven't fished up that way yet.
