Al, I would think you could try automotive door/window trim. I'm sure AutoZone, Pep Boys, Napa or someplace like that would have something similar to what was OEM. You could also try surgical tubing. It comes in different diameters and definitely be squishee enough.

Gearing Up and Rigging Up / Re: Retying leaders and replacing line

I'm cheap, so I like to take it off and reverse it, that way the old stuff is inside and the new is on top. That way i get two years out of it. If it's over two years old, replace it.
If the leaders are two years old, I'd replace them too.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Trolling for Kokanee at Whiskeytown
« on: June 20, 2022, 11:59:23 AM »
There are a ton of video's out there.
General, My setup is as follows;
6-10lb main. On the main line, put on one of the little red weight sliders (Sorry, I don't know what the name of them is). On the slider I use 1, 2 or 3oz torpedo's or ball weights.
Then tie on a bead/chain swivel to the main line. This is important to keep the line from twisting. From the Chain swivel add about 3-4' 6lb leader. Tie on a 4" dodger. Tie on your lure about 6-8" from dodger. Troll at 1.2 to 1.8mph depending on what the Kokes want.

Tackle- Underlined are my go to's.

 Dodgers- 4" in several color combos, Chrome/Pink, Chrome/Watermelon and Brass/Orange. Sometimes the Kokes can be skittish so that's when the Brass/Orange is used.

 Lures- Paulina Peak Micro Hootchies with double hooks in Hot Pink. Wedding Rings, Spin-n-Glows, Apex's, Brads kokanee Killers.

Bait- Shoe peg or White caned corn. I make 3 different batches. You don't need the expensive cures or scents they sell at the tackle stores!

1-put the drained corn on a paper towel and pat dry
2-place 1/3rd of corn in a zip-lock bag, 3 bags total.
Do not use iodized salt!
3- Bag 1, Add 2 teaspoons of Kosher Salt and 1 spoon full of minced garlic.  Done.
    Bag 2, add 2 teaspoons Kosher salt and 2 teaspoons Table sugar. Done.
    Bag 3, add 2 Teaspoons Kosher salt and add 6 drops of Anise extract. (You can find this in the baking section with the Vanilla and other flavors). Done
4- Close bags and mix.

That's it! Time to go fishing.

Feel free to ask any questions you have.


There is no shade at Boca Rest campground so be sure to bring a easy-up type canopy. If your not bringing the kayak, just fish the mouth of the river right down from your camp site. Usual trout stuff works... Power bait, Salmon eggs...
If you can get the kayak up there, Boca has Kokanee but you would be better off taking the short drive up to Stampede.

Sold my CRF450X two years ago due to shoulder injury. Gettin the itch real bad for another bike!

Good luck, Kevin

I'm in need of a gaff. I'm in Sac as well. PM me your contact info please.

It was great fishing with you again Brian. It was nice meeting Kayak newbie Dean too. He did quite well for his first time.
As Brian said, it was a tough day up there. Marked fish all day long but they just didn't want to play. Figure the heavy boat traffic over the holiday weekend put them off.
Still, I managed to get a double trifecta. Ended my day with 2 Spotted Bass, 2 Rainbows and 2 Kokanee.
Gonna hit Stampede next weekend, windy or not. I heard they killed them up there over the weekend.

Yeah, me too, never launched out of Emerald. It will probably be a zoo getting out of there so Iím good with Dark Day. I expect to be there between 6 & 6:30.

Brian, do you want to launch at dark day or Emerald?

Stampede res. is out due to bad weather. Bullards looks good Monday morning. I'll be there at 6:30am. I usually launch at Dark Day but may try at Emerald Cove marina by the dam. Looks like the fishing is good at the Dam and houseboats. Gold Toyota Sequoia trailering a fire camo Feelfree Moken.


Looks like Monday will be the best day.

Cancelled! The winds are going to be 18-24mph.
I'll be at Bullards Bar instead. wind is doable there in the morning.
