Stampede Fishing Report!

 Website day today at Stampede for Kokanee 15”-16+”.  There was a big traffic jam out on Dog Valley Road that put us on the water after 6am but with the hot bite, it didn’t matter.  Purple and pink, pink n chartreuse, pink n blue, and chartreuse n orange worked equally with tuna flavored sho peg corn trolled between 35-55’ at 1.2mph.  Seeing lotta people struggle then when they show me their set ups, they are running their hoochies too far behind dodgers.  8”-12” has been working great.  3’ is way way way too far behind dodger.  And micro is the key in hoochie selection.  That’s why glitterbugs work so well.  They are all micro hoochie.  You can find these Lures at Will Fish Tackle in Auburn or online at

I still have room this week.  Call me toll free at 888-875-0990 or book online at

Changed things up today. Trolled straight for the little Truckee arm picking up Kokanee after Kokanee along the way. Hit the shallows in the Truckee for a bunch of dink cutthroats and 5 pansized native rainbows. Turned around and trolled back to ramp to finish our limit of Kokanee.  Ya don’t have to fish with the pack of boats to catch 50 kokanee by 10am. Save yourself some frustration and go solo. Paulina Peak Tackle did it again. Broke my last purple haze so I guess I’ll try some new colors.

Still have room tomorrow and open on Friday.  Call me at 888-975-0990 or book online at
