NO NEWS IS BAD NEWS FOR KOKANEE - posted December 3, 2012
Eleven Mile State Park: As many of you are aware the Kokanee Salmon fishing has been on the decline at Eleven Mile since Gill Lice was introduced in 2006. Although CPW has continued to stock the reservoir since then with almost 900,000 fish annually except for 2012 where the lake only received 450,000 it appears they are prepared to stop since there does not seem to be any let up in the extreme mortality rates seen here. Oddly enough other lakes that have Salmon with Gill Lice don’t see large numbers die off like they do at Eleven Mile. That means they intend to let all the salmon here die off before trying again. We are looking at many years before we see Kokanee return here. In the very short term we believe this winter will be fairly decent for salmon in the two and three year range. Only time will tell.
