    Anyone have any thoughts or comments on this.
    Yep you are correct. And trolling over the original channel is where you want to be. The water there is around 100’ , a little deeper when the lake is full and shallower as the lake drops. Although even in mid summer I haven’t had to go much deeper for trout than 50’. I know people who have caught kokes there and for those they have been down close to the bottom. They don’t plant kokes in Camanche but some kokes get washed down from Pardee.

    Yes I know and Comanche per se it's a winter Lake.

    And I know you have to go deep to find a cold water where the trout may hang out.

    I can walk out my door hook up my boat.... Be on the lake with a pole in the water in 30 minutes.

    Some mornings just feel like going for a boat ride..

    Might as well try catching something while I'm doing it.
