    I went after them while they were on a spawning run. Real small stream and they were all bright red like sockeye... very cool.

    I caught them in Ririe Reservoir in Eastern Idaho. My first time ice fishing was last season. It was really cool with the Kokanee because they would come through in large schools and some of the more experienced ice fishermen were catching their limits in 15 minutes. I was using shiny jigs. You could see them come through on the fishfinder. They weren't very large, the largest being about 15 inches, but they were darn good eating. I just pan fried them. This coming winter, I think I will try cooking them on a plank on the barbeque. Yeah, I barbeque in the middle of winter with a gas barbeque and yeah, I'm optimistic that i will catch them.

    I also caught some last spring at the same reservoir trolling with a "Kokanie Rig".

    Offraod, what lakes in Central are you fishing? We have a cabin close to Crescent and Odell, and have hiked into Meek and Snell Lakes.
