Anglers are still having a great time catching sockeye on Lake Wenatchee, although they are battling some high winds along with fish at times. Extending the season through the month of August will make a lot of people happy. I would still get after these fish as early as possible. They do start showing signs of nearing their spawning time as we move further into August. They are fine now, though. I wanted people to know that the Methow River is now under “hoot owl” regulations, which means that it is closed to fishing from 2 p.m. to midnight. The afternoon water temperatures severely stress fish that are hooked or handled. This is a good practice on all our area streams right now. Also, if you want the best chance of hooking a hatchery Chinook fish at Chelan Falls. There is a good return of these net pen reared fish this year and it has the highest percentage of fin clipped kings in the area. Other popular fishing spots off a fifty-fifty chance of getting a keeper king, while the average in much higher at Chelan Falls.
