Check out this article. Looks like you could get a little of your gas money back if you want to fish Coeur d'lene for Lakers. [url "http://www.magicvalley.com/news_other/news_idaho/?storyid=/dynamic/stories/I/ID_KOKANEE_BAN_IDOL"]http://www.magicvalley.com/.../ID_KOKANEE_BAN_IDOL[/url]-

Link doesn't seem to be working .... Here's the pertanent paragraphs:

He said a temporary ban is needed to keep Lake Coeur d'Alene from having a kokanee crisis like Lake Pend Oreille or Priest Lake.
Kokanee fishing was permanently banned on Lake Pend Oreille in 2000. The fish began to decline in the mid-1960s when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dropped the winter lake level. Combined with a boom in lake trout, which eat kokanee, the species tanked.
Today commercial fishermen are netting lake trout and [#ff0000]the state is paying a $10 bounty for every lake trout or rainbow trout longer than 12 inches that an angler catches[/#ff0000]. The goal is to revive kokanee by getting the predator-prey ratio in balance.

[font "Comic Sans MS"][red][size 4] Geez, if a guy could go up there and spend a little time on that water and have a good day fishing it might just be worth the while and drive up there. Good idea.[/size][/red][/font]

I believe Warm Lake east of the town of Cascade has them.

As far as I know Palisades and Bear Lake are the only places in Eastern Idaho that have lake trout. There is also the occasional laker caught in the South Fork below Palisades Reservoir. A few other reservoirs (?Ririe, Deep Creek and Devil Creek?) in Eastern Idaho were planted with lake trout years ago but as far as I know do not have lake trout currently.
