Kokanee Lake near Ainsworth, British Columbia
Kokanee Lake doesn't have any kokanee in it, but it does support a strong population of Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Fly fishing with ant, beetle, and fly patterns work well. Spin anglers do just as good on black spinners and wedding rings tipped with maggots. Try to plan your trip between Mid-July and Mid-October, when fishing is at its peak.
