Report- Kokanee Power Oregon Finds big fish on Wickiup Reservoir

Kokanee Power of Oregon Derby held its second derby of the year this past weekend in one of the great locations in Central Oregon.  It was a very exciting and fun competition despite slow fishing conditions as Wickiup Reservoir Kokanee are monsterous this season.  In the competition numerous fish hit the 2 lb. category and 18 inches on the measuring, so if you’re looking for quality over quantity, Wickiup may be for you.

Two more derbys remain for the 2012 season, the next being July 14th, at Crescent Lake.  The finale of the 4 tournament fishing year will be held at Odell Lake on August 18th.
