Strawberry Kokes
Has anyone been up to Strawberry lately for Kokes? Heading up tonight for the weekend but have not heard if anyone has been doing good or not. I usually fish from Strawberry Marina over toward the ladders. If so what are the best colors right now and approx. Depth?

Im curious as well Im heading up in the morning and planning on fishing the Soldier Creek side as the reports from that side where more promising last week. I have never fished that side, the reports said the fish where out in the middle. What bottom depth am I looking for on that side? Ill be stacking 2 Downriggers from 20 to 40 feet down initially, until I find the most productive depth. Last weeks reports said pink and white mini squids without blades where the most productive at 35 so, I will start out with that with a bladed squid in the mix, behind pink, orange, and pink and green sling blades. Any information from the last few days would be much appreciated.

It has been rainy and windy. Fished yesterday. Only got 2 kokanee - my first on the Strawberry side this year. I expect it to improve with the weather next week. Water temp was 44*. Both came at 29' one on red and one on pink.
I will be back up on Saturday.

I fished today with my boy and we caught 7 kokes and had some other long releases. Surface temp was about 46 and the rest of the water column was about 44 according to my Fish Hawk. Its still cold. This cold weather and rain has slowed things.

There are fish to be caught, but the fish are scattered.

We caught them from 8 to 40

We used pink and white squids and 5.5 dodgers. We also used some home made squids and wedding ring type lures in pinks and oranges.

Im not sure one worked better than the other. It was just hit or miss based upon when we found the fish and were at the right depth.

It was nice that it wasn't too busy. That will probably change.

When will those fish cleaning stations be open?

We fished the Strawberry side from the marina to Haws and east and west of that line. Nothing secret.

Most were about 16. Nothing to write home about but my 13 year old had fun.

We fought the wind and rain for a few hours Monday and caught a couple limits of kokes mostly on Macks Hot orange squids behind a sling blade and a few on Red hot head Cripplures down about 40'.

I went online to look at "windalert" and it did not have a station at Strawberry. I saw Deer Creek, Heber, and lots of other stations but not Strawberry. What am I missing?

I fished the SC side on Friday a.m. The fishing was hot. Caught kokes from 25 to 50 feet in depth. Color didn't matter - everything was working. The only problem, the fish seem smaller. Didn't get anything over 1.5 lbs. A lot of fish around the 1.0 lb size. The bigger fish we found deeper at 50 feet. Lost a bunch of fish on the way to the boat that seemed bigger, but i'm not sure (you know how that goes)??? We did see some big schools around 75 to 85 feet; however, never dropped down to see what they were.

BTW - American Land & Liezure is charging $16.00 to take a truck & boat into the marina. The annual pass is $105.

The water & restrooms were not turn on. I believe this is the 3rd year in a row that the restrooms have not functioned at SC. (maybe they get them running later in the season, I'm not sure?) This is a ripoff!

I'm about 99.9% sure the concessionaire isn't AL&L this year. Utah Recreation Company is now managing the parks/campgrounds in Utah. That's according to the local ranger district office I talked to a couple weeks ago. I hope they do a better job of Customer Service than AL&L did.

You are correct Bob, the contract came open last year and A L & L lost the bid.

Does anyone know if you camp you can launch a boat without additional fee? I recall that was the case at Aspen Grove cg on Soldier a number of years back last I did that.
