    You're right, that's a tench I caught in Rufus last summer. Most people wouldn't recognize it.

    Interesting thread. Has anyone used this method for Kokanee? And I also wonder what flies would work for them, fishing vertically and deep.

    I caught a small one once in relatively shallow water, just under the surface, when casting for Coastal Cutts. It hit a yellow soft-hackle fly that was working well for the Cutts.

    In Lk Sutherland I know a guy who catches Kokanee on a white Point wilson dart with a fire red tail section. Jigging. Maybe a minnow pattern?
