Big Elk Creek is now well worth a visit. Fish take terrestrial patterns around early afternoon. Many “go to sleep” until flavs emerge in late afternoon when water temps get to around mid 50s in degrees F. Then all become active to make for great top water fishing. Last Wednesday kokanee were about a mile up the creek. Now they are much further. They don’t bother the cutts from feeding, but they do bring all kinds of anglers. If you witness kokanee snaggers, make an identity effort (vehicle registration works) then contact IDG&F. IDF&G has plainclothes officers patrolling the creek, but they can use help in stopping this illegal activity.
