Lake Pend Oreille kokanee bag limit

Due to the large number of kokanee we are seeing in Lake Pend Oreille in 2014, we changed the bag limit from 6 to 15 as of today, May 15th.  Kokanee are a great tasting fish.  Check with your local sportshops on how to fish for kokanee.  During the summer months, anglers in boats are more successful than bank anglers.  Fishing flash gear with a piece of bait at a depth of 20 - 30' is the general way.  You can also jig using a colored jig with worm or maggot.
