Best time of year for Kokes at Georgetown Lake?
« on: Nov 13, 2019, 08:54 PM »
Hoping to get a trip up to Georgetown Lake anytime between Dec.1 to April, wondering what your most productive time of year is, and what factors seem to make the bite better/worse under the ice? Thanks guys!

All depends on the time of year, thickness of ice and snow cover... If you still a hole and aren't marking a few fish per minute you need to go to a different area on the lake. Oxygen availabilty really can limit the distribution of fish...

Morning time between 7 and 8:30 (shortly after daylight) the silvers have a feeding frenzy. Then it mellows out for the most part. Trout will hit all day and night depending on where you are at.

Any suggestions on good areas to try for Kokanee?  Always wanted to catch one.

They are all throughout the lake. Try to get to 18+ feet of water. Start at Comers, good as anywhere.

Looks like I'll be able to get up there this coming Saturday. Staying near Red Bridge Friday and Saturday night. Considering fishing red bridge or making the drive to Comers. There will be a couple of ladies in our party, I'm curious does the bathroom at Comers get locked up for the winter? And based on how the fishing has been so far, would you recommend one spot over the other? Thanks!

Haven't been to Comers this year yet, season is still super fresh but the bathroom is typically open and RB should be too.  RB typically has less people. 6 in one, half a dozen in the other...

I fished comers Sunday, the facilities were open and clean!
Fishing was steady, but I find that to be anywhere on the lake this time of year.
The weekend or two after hunting season closes tends to be pretty busy. Good luck!
