Hi, I'm Dave Graybill, the Fishin' Magician!

Chelan Kokanee
Kokanee are the largest anyone can remember at Lake Chelan this year. They are consistently 15 to nearly 17 inches and are biting right now. Anglers are fishing for them deeper than usual, with most being taken in 100 feet of water. The fish will move more shallow soon, and I think the size average will drop, too, so get on them now!
Here you will find current information on fishing in Central Washington State.

I grew up in Central Washington and began writing about the outdoors in the mid 70s. I began broadcasting report on outdoor recreation on KOZI Radio in Lake Chelan in 1991. My reports are now carried on several radio stations and many newspapers in Washington. The reports give what’s happening and how-to information on fishing for bass, perch, walleye, trout, kokanee, salmon, steelhead and other species.
