The Great Outdoors: Kokanee Fish Passage


Every year, about the time the kids head back to school, the kokanee in Lake Billy Chinook start a schooling of their own. These schooling fish signal some of the best fishing of the year.

In this week’s Great Outdoors, Central Oregon Daily’s Brooke Snavely shows us how to catch kokanee and talks about the important role these landlocked salmon play in restoring ocean-going fish runs.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor Parr Lumber, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
