Labor Day Weekend is always a busy one here in Central Washington, and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has created some special opportunities for anglers the long weekend. The have extended the fishing for sockeye salmon on Lake Wenatchee through September 1st, so anglers can still catch six sockeye a day on the lake. Fish showing their spawning colors but are still great for the smoker. Good numbers of sockeye are still being caught, and some big ones, too. The WDFW has also opened fishing for fall kings earlier than usual in the Priest Rapids Pool. The Priest Rapids Pool opens to fishing on August, 30th, and two poles will be allowed through August 31st. The limit is six Chinook, of which two may be adults. All other rules for the Columbia River apply, including barbless hooks. As many of you know, there is a record return of fall fish coming up the Columbia this year, and Town Ford in East Wenatchee is offering a free seminar on Thursday, September 11th, featuring Rick Graybill as the speaker. The seminar will be held at the dealership, beginning at 6 p.m. Don’t miss this one!
