Kokanee are regularly stocked by the Idaho Fish & Game Department. Visit this lake in the upper northern section of the state, at Sandpoint, ID for a weekend fishing trip or an extended vacation. You'll have 111 miles of shoreline to explore and fish. The elevation is 2,060 feet above sea level offering ice fishing in winter and plenty of fishing from the bank or a boat once the ice melts.

Kayaks and canoes can be portaged from some of the same areas open for bank fishing. Several marinas are ready to service your boating, fishing and camping needs.
