The trout and kokanee lakes are about 1.5 to 2 hours away in the Sierra foothills. I have a lake where I'm C-n-Ring 20-30 fish a day. I'll probably go Saturday the 9th. If you need info on tackle and rigging, let me know.

marin_yaker, did you get the letter I mailed you about the Garmin?

Hello, so glad to have become a member of this forum.

I don't have a long history of fishing or kayaking. My son and I started fishing last winter of 2023, and soon realized we wanted to be on the water and not just the banks. Then came the kayaks in earlier this June. Pictured here, was our first catches on the South Fork American River. Looking forward to reading about everyone's adventures.

We both have a Hobie Revolution 11.

Welcome Funkymonk, There are a bunch of members from the Sacramento area. I'm in Sac. If you're interested in trying for Trout and Kokanee, let me know. I'm going after them next weekend.

Thinking of heading up there in a week or two. Where do you launch? Where do I park my Sequoia with a kayak trailer?

My set up is as follows;
Rod: Eagle Claw Featherlight Kokanee Trolling Rod. $25 at Walmart. - Dont let the cheap price fool you. These are fantastic Koke/Trout trolling rods.
Reel: Abu Garcia Max Digital Line Counter Low Profile Baitcast Reel. $120. I have two of these digital line counter reels and love them.
Main line: Yo-Zuri Hybrid Fishing Line, Clear, 10-Pound.
Dropper rig: On the main line, add a bead, a small weight slider and another bead. Then tie on a bead chain swivel. I run 3-4 foot leader from the chain swivel to a 4" dodger. Then 6-8" back for a lure that has no action, like a Hootchie, Spin-n-Glow or Wedding ring. 12-18" back for lure with built in action like Spoons, Wiggle Hoochies, Cut Plugs.
On the weight slider, add 2,3 or 4oz Torpeedo or Cannon Ball weight depending on how deep the fish are.
You could use a snap swivel instead of the weight slider but it may wear out your line. The advantage of the weight slider is that when a fish strikes, it only feels the tension from the rod and the drag because the weight is sliding freely up and down the main line when the the fish hits and runs.  The chain swivel is a must. It keeps everything from twisting up.

Hope this helps. I can take pics if you need them.

Nate, You don't have to use a down rigger to fish for Koke's. Many of us just use a dropper rig. If the fish are 50' deep or more, that's when the down rigger helps. If they are shallower than that, try the dropper rig. Let me know if you need info on the dropper rig.
Good job on your first try. If you're not addicted to them yet, you soon will be! Hope you have a fat wallet!

You could hide a couple silvers inside a cowcod.  Halibut are too flat.  For a chinook you probably want to bring a blow up sex doll with you and hide it in that. 

1.  Nobody is going to touch your sex doll
2.  You can prop her up in the passenger seat and use the HOV lane to and from the fishing grounds.

And definitely make a youtube video, but pixilate the face of the sex doll and the chinook to protect the identity of the innocent.

HAHA, You gave me a great idea for when I go solo on the tandem yak!

Take a look at the NRS 2.0 or the Stohlquist Rapid John. Both are great. I'm currently using the Stohlquist. Found it on sale before Christmas for $89.

Halfway through it. Captivating info. The Klamath River holds some great memories in my heart and mind from childhood visits there. One of the first places i can truly remember that my Pops would take us as young teens.

Specifically, the mouth of the Klamath. Camping right near the beach at " Dads Camp". Mid Seventies.

Yea, it sucks that its closed this year. A large group of us have been going to the Spit and the Glen every year Memorial day week and stay at Camp Klamath. May have to cross into Oregon this year. Glad the dams are coming down. Hopefully the fishing will return to what it was years ago.
