Kokanee Salmon

Reece Stein is back for this week’s “Where To,” and he’s visiting Rockport Reservoir with Utah Division of Wildlife Resources as they work to establish new populations of kokanee salmon in three reservoirs in Utah. The most recent effort is an introduction of 24,000 three-inch fish into Rockport Reservoir, the second of such integrations.

These salmon max out at four lbs and turn bright red when they spawn. They thrive at both Strawberry Reservoir and Flaming Gorge, and they complement other sport fish in the reservoirs whether they live.

Yellow perch, smallmouth bass, rainbow and brown trout all comingle at Rockport Reservoir, so check out this week’s segment and then pack your tackle box for a trip of your own.
