Return of the Kokanee
You are looking at a photo of some of the first Kokanee caught out of Lake Pend Oreille since 1994.
Retired Mountain Man has them in his Little Chief Smoker today. He is as expert at smoking fish. In my opinion Smoked Kokanee are the best smoked fish. Their flavor is sweet and the texture is firm and not too dry. They are ten times better than smoked salmon.
We will be enjoying a treat later today. It takes about six hours to smoke the fish.
