Any suggestions apart from, don't go fishing, and the like, but I do want to know how not to target Kokanee.

It has been suggested to troll faster, but how much faster?

And not to use certain lures, but which ones?

use plugs deep (60 ft ) . big flatfish work.
troll bucktails a bit faster than normal trolling speed, especially if it is choppy.
generally think bigger!

BEST KOKANEE SETUP EVER; good trolling pole with 12-14lbs. test line with a ford fender or gibbs nordic lake flash in half chrome and brass finnish, use a 16-20" leader with a triple teezer, kokanee king or highland fling (orange finnish or half orange half brass) bait with corn that you soke in red pautzke nectar over night. dont put any weight on just let out 100+ft. of line and troll a bit faster than you would for trout. if theres a bait ban where you fish use the highland fing with no bait on it they work good. if your missing bites use a rubber snubber above the flasher. if you dont get anything after 2 hours put a 1oz. rubber center sinker abover your flash. the longer your leader the more action your lure will have i allways think longer is better and use about a 20" leader. DONT USE WORMS FOR KOKANEE they will take them but no bait at all works better than worms for kokanee. follow this and you will catch your limit no dought. <*)))>< fish fear this

Maybe Abe is as baffled as I am and is also still trying to figure that one out...

How about omitting the hook, that should do it?

OK, the guy at the Fish and Wildlife Regional Office said to me that if you are fishing the Okanagan when the Kok's are out of season then you should not target them.

He gave me some advice, that which is written down as guidelines, and went on to say that he had been out fishing and the opposite happened. He was not targeting Kok's, more going for Trout, but he was catching Kok's ????????

So much for his advice, so still begs the question, how not to catch Kok's. Or is it totally unavoidable?

I am right on the Okanagan so it is the easiest place to fish for me and I would rather not catch Kok's out of season.

I suppose that I could ask the question, how to target Kok's, and not use that method, but would that leave me with enough options for catching anything else.

And I could just go to Skaha Lake.
