We took my buddies nephew that is going on a mission in one month and he had never caught too many fish before. He just kept mumbling to himself. "I can't believe we caught that many fish. I can't believe how big they are. I can't believe how hard they fight. This is really fun!"
We fished Brinegars Ranch, Anvil and Hideout which all produced fish. Some days were just plain amazing with 2 and 3 lb fish. Weather was great and the wind was never terrible. We used mostly RMT dodgers and lures and squids. Pink is still the color. We did get some fish on the green wedding rings and a couple of other spoons.
The best was one evening we went out to catch rainbows near swim beach. Ridiculous how many fish we caught and the size of some of them were big. We caught 40 rainbows in 2 hours. All were caught on rainbow garlic power bait. My pole was never quiet for more than 2 minutes the whole time. I have never seen rainbow fishing that good that I can recall. The flesh of the rainbows are very red. Good eating I am guessing. We kept a few to find out.
I have attached a couple of photos to look at. Of course the kid caught the biggest Kokanee - as it should be.
