After catching a couple of nice steelhead below Wells Dam my fishing friend Rollie Schmitten and I returned to this spot to try again. We actually started our day fishing just below the launch, along the bar. Schmitten got a fish on his first cast, and I thought we were in for a big day of steelhead fishing. Once again we were rigged up with bobbers and Maxi-Jigs. We didn’t get a bump on our next pass, but I hooked up on the third. We then tried the opposite shore but didn’t find any evidence of steelhead in the hole that had produced two for us on the last trip. I had brought along some back trolling set ups so we gave this method a try off the bar. On our first drift I got a dandy wild fish, and we continued on down stream, using these rigs until I lost them on deep boulders in heavy current. We had more river to cover anyway, and were going to try some other spots and end up in Chelan Falls. We fished a lot of likely looking water but had no success until we got all the way back down to our money hole below the Beebe Bridge. Here we got one more fish before we called it day.
