I heard that there are Koke's in Brownlee, is that true?


There is a very slim chance a kokanee could have flushed out of the Boise or Payette River system and was caught in Brownlee - but it's highly unlikely.  What you are probably seeing are silvery-looking rainbow trout.  Brownlee is a very productive system for rainbow trout in the fall and they put on weight and have brighter colors.  We have not directly stocked kokanee salmon in Brownlee Reservoir.
