Last year I caught several fish in early May here, so I wanted to try it again. I got there about 7 and the sun was already bright so I was concerned the fish would be in hiding, but they were active until about 9:30. At first there were a few fish eating bugs here and there, so I targeted them and caught a nice cutthroat in about 5 feet of water. Then I moved to my secret spot and started catching bull trout including one about 5 pounds! I think he could be the one I caught in the same spot last year.

Overall, I caught 3 cutthroat and 4 bulls (released). I was kind of hoping to catch a Kokanee so I could taste one, but no luck with them today. It was a very beautiful day and very enjoyable.

I needed to get some wilderness time, so I took my canoe to Rimrock lake for my first mountain trip of the season. Last year I caught several fish a certain part of the lake at the beginning of May. I though that with the mild winter maybe I could catch some in April but no. I thought I had one bite, but my anti-reverse was off so I couldn't tell.Tried a spoon and spinner for 1-2 hours with not luck. It was nice to get out, very peaceful and saw and heard lots of birds, but no fish. Air temp was about 45-55 it seemed like, I don't know about the water.

My family and I went to camp at Silver Beach Resort. I fished for about three days using all different types of set ups from spoons to worms to power bait, etc. I caught one dolly vrarden about 11" but that's about it. The only success I had was with a chartreuse dick nite with the frog splatter. There were a lot of people fishing. Fun lake, just tough to catch fish.

Been do'n some cabin work at rimrock so I decided to toss one of my CRAW traps in to test the action. Pull'd about 3 doz keepers and had them for dinner. used trout heads/guts in a bait basket to lure them in. I probably could have had more but I think the wave action was moving the trap around some. Good eats!!!!

Fished down by the dam to get away from the wind and sail boats with not a lot of luck. We started at 8:00 caught 3 small kokanee about 6 inches, we left just in time as the ski boats and jet skies were rolling in which was about 1:00.

Launched the boat at Silver Cove and started fishing at 11:00am and stopped fishing at 3:00pm. The two of us limited out on Kokanee at 16 fish apiece. The fish were small with a size between 6-8 inches. Many of the fish fell off the hook before reaching the boat due to soft mouths that a snubber may help prevent that from occurring. We used a small flasher followed by a 3 foot leader then a Rimrock Special tipped with a maggot. The fish were mainly between 20-40 feet suspended.

A quick trip to Rimrock today for "silvers" ok, "kokanee" to all the icthyologists out there because they are a landlocked sockeye. I grew up with them being "silvers" in Rimrock. That's what my 95 year old dad always called them when we spent many days on the lake when I was a small lad, and that is what they will always be to me. Sorry for the "misnomer" just a memory thing for me.

Caught three kokanee, one went back (only 4") and the other two (8") plus one 9" bow came home for a treat for Mom and Dad to feast on. Wind was brutal, typical May morning on Rimrock. Chummed with bran, which helped get the silvers. They were deep, about 10-12' under a slip bobber with a red Rimrock Special fly, size 12 tipped with two maggots. Started at 9 am, left at 11:30. Should get better when water clears a bit more. Lake not quite full. Wind gusts were up there, 25-30 mph, white caps. Only saw one boat wind trolling, and they did not stay long either.

Rimrock lake was very calm and pretty clear. We were excited to see a few sizable fish splashes while we were there, but we got skunked. I tried bait fishing and trolling spoons and a wedding ring spinner and caught nothing, though it seems like we had some possible bites. It doesn't look like there's very many fish in this lake.

Hit Rimrock this morning with three friends, hoping to see the kokanee bite taking off. My neighbor Glen had the first fish in the boat about twenty minutes into it, and then nothing until the youngster in the boat, Collin, caught a 12" rainbow. It was real slow until Glen put a brown roostertail on, with a dual Colorado blade setup ahead of it, tipped with maggotts, and he started hooking a few kokanee. I stayed with my red rimrock special, and the other three used brown roostertails for us to finish with just 9 kokanee, and one rainbow for the frying pan.
We had probably double that in hits and fish on that didn't make it to the boat, along with two bulltrout that I caught & released.
We marked fish everywhere in depths from on top to 50' down, and caught our fish in the 10-15' range. The water was still just a little off color, but very fishable, and when these kokanee decide to go on the bite, which I feel will be very soon, it will be a fun time on the water.
Good to see the County Sheriff doing his safety checks, so be compliant when you go, and have lot's of fun. Tight lines and take a youngster fishing with you.
Kokanee were about 9-10", bulltrout were about 14" in length.
