    Re: Robinson Creek Trout and Kokes

    The west carson near the 89 & 88 intersection, is that where the bridge is & guys roll down their windows on their pickups & cast from the cab cuz they don't want to stray too far from their kegs? No thanks. I'd rather hoof it into round lake which yields all the cutts I need for the frying pan, after their heads & tails are removed cuz they are too darn big to fit. Can't take a 6 pac that far unless you're in good shape.

    The Upper Truckee sucks so don't come up hear and fish it because it's not worth it unless you want to catch bass. Go to the west Carson at Picketts Junction if you want to catch fish. It's only 10 minutes more of a drive. I'm no biologist and always assumed the same until I witnessed what I did, so I guess they mouthed those bugs and spit them out. Either way it doesn't matter so again if you didn't like how I fished that day to bad. Maybe you should get out and actually fish instead of being an e-angler or computer fisherman.

    Thank you for that articulate, insightful and highly informative dissertation...... If we could just figure out a way to land a float plane in there too, we'd be in business...

    They may not be feeding, but they will still snap at things as a reaction. Salmon of all species have been seen eating drifting eggs, it is assumed by biologists as an evolutionary action to attempt to prevent "chum" trails in the rivers that attract egg eating predators.

    Re: Robinson Creek Trout and Kokes

    If I were snagging I would've landed a thousand or more instead of three on this trip. Yes they do eat at times when up stream I witnessed some eating midges at times and a few crippled caddis. But the trout are eating eggs.
    It's not just Taylor Creek that's closed it's all tributaries to Lake Tahoe as of September 30th! I fished the Upper Truckee in my back yard Sunday for the last time this year. You may not agree with how I fished that day but to bad. I live up here and know the regs unlike you.

    Well a couple corrections, he isn't actually catching the kokes, he's snagging them, some peeps get a thrill doing this. They have ceased eating, and devote everything to spawning. Even if he gets them in the mouth, it's just because the line runs across the snout, this same technique of snagging is used on the American River hole when the salmon stack up, yes it is real exciting dragging a fish ashore when it's hooked in the back. Kind of like shooting a lion in a cage. A statement about Tahoe tribs being open until the end of the month, everything but Taylor creek is open.

    Valid questions, but if you read the original post, the target was trout feeding in the area. Kokanee weren't the target, and trout weren't spawning. Miniaturized version of steelhead fishing riffles below spawning salmon in a river.

    Certainly appropriate to take care in such situations, not wading through redds or targeting spawning fish, but by-catch is a real thing. Would be nice to use barbless hooks, catch and rease friendly nets and keep fish in the water. If you look at the pics that's exactly what was done.

    I'm the first in-line to promote ethical fishing practices. Even flustered a few folks on the subject, but this is not one of those situations in my opinion. Educating folks and advocating good practices is never a bad thing. Uninformed *****ing and griping????? Then again, I'm probably member of that club too...
