Konakee Fish Species Information
|Scientific Fish Name:||Oncorhynchus nerka|
|Other Fish Species Names:|

They turn reddish in color and males develop a “hook jaw” during the fall spawning season. Trolling with cowbells at medium depths provides angling success. Special snagging seasons are offered on some areas during spawning runs, and provide much of the catch for these delicious salmon. Kokanee die after spawning.
