You can read my previous post about using local advice here. Getting the opinions from a local guide, the marina and other anglers got us catching fish much quicker than trying on our own.
Here is some of what we learned about the Kokanee Salmon on Blue Mesa Reservoir. First off, Salmon are typically found in schools. We marked a lot of fish around Blue Mesa, but most of our actual Salmon hook ups resulted in traveling through large groups of fish. We would troll until we found a school, then we would try to hit it from several different directions and if we weren't getting bites, we would switch up our lures and depths.
