Kokanee sizes currently average 9 to 10 inches. Still fishing from a boat is the best approach, fishing closer to shore early in the season and in the deeper water during mid-summer. It is possible to fish from the bank for kokanee near the Suttle Lake picnic area on the northeast corner of the lake.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
