I don't trust that program... it often misses fish that are there... or water bodies that exist.... *chuckle*

How close to Eugene are we talking here?

Ideally, leaving after a normal breakfast time and arriving at home just in time for a late dinner after catching our limits in fish... So preferably within 60 miles or so... but the closer the better... seriously considering heading out to Dexter to try on some of those land-locked Chinook that someone was talkin' 'bout, too... *grin*

Triangle, Dexter, Look out Point, Cougar Res, Foster, and Green Peter. I think Dexter and Look out Point are the closest. It depends on what end of Eugene. Triangle lake is about 45 minutes from west Eugene. Let us know how you do and I'm curious to know if you think they make good table fare. I caught a bunch last fall and I didn't think they tasted that great. Good luck.

I should point out that there was previous discussion about local Kokes. It was determined that Dexter, Lookout Point and Hill Creek are stocked with Lanlocked CHINOOK which are not true Kokanee.

Looks like I'ma have to get out to T Lake, then... I haven't ever fished it... (mainly 'cause the boat access looks pretty limited and private on the drive-bys that I've done)...

Thanks!

A kokanee is a land locked sokeye salmon and I think a land locked chinook is just that a land locked chinook.

Yes, that is correct. That's why I had pointed it out because there are landlocked Chinook in there but technically they aren't Kokanee. Although there used to be true Kokanee in Lookout Point 20 years ago.

Sorry banjo but those are chinokanee(actually called land locked chinook) I was confused at first but the have a black gumline(just like a chinook) and even though they are bright and shiny they have a bit more dark colored spots on there back(just like a chinook) I have got into them at lookout(more often the trout) at fallcreek(every other fish) and just started getting them at dexter(only fish I got today was a chinook). The closest place I know of for kokes is triangle but there are always crescent and odell which aren't that bad of a drive and great scenery and not to mention all the other high lakes that have them. I'll go take a picture of the one I got and put it on here in a bit. Looks like a koke's even twin.
