My fishing buddy James Lebow and I have had some good days fishing Billy Clapp Lake, near Soap Lake. We have fished for walleye and kokanee in the summer, and he found both species there recently. He hooked but didn’t land a couple of big kokanee and put four nice walleye in the live well. That’s all it took to get me to join him and Ryan Harris for a trip there last Thursday. We spent the first two hours trolling for kokanee, and although we were marking a bunch of fish along the shore above the big basalt island, we only got one good bite on our Kokabow gear. We blamed that on the very brisk breeze that we weren’t expecting. The wind also made it difficult for James to run the boat when we run to the upper end to fish for walleye. We were getting a lot of bites in the area we were trolling out bottom bouncers but getting a lot of hang ups on the very snaggy bottom of Billy Clapp. We did better when the wind settled down. We put three walleye in the live well and left before the weather got too hot.
This green sparkly Smile blade worked the best for us at Billy Clapp.
