By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. It was the first time I slept on a boat since my days working my Dad's commercial fishing boat in Bristol Bay, Alaska. I spent the night anchored up in Lake Chelan last Saturday and what a night! Once the crescent moon dipped behind Baldy Mountain and Stormy Mountain, the stars were spectacular. Temperatures dipped to around 70 and a light breeze blew just enough to gently rock the boat. The lapping water against the hull lulled me into one of the best sleeps I've had in a long time. I awoke at about 4:30 to the hint of blue tinging the darkness to the east. I got up, pulled the anchor in and motored over to just off Rocky Point. Before I could get the trolling motor running, I realized to my disbelief I'd left my entire kokanee box at home! How could I be so dumb?! I scrounged through the two tackle boxes I had with me and put together enough to at least make an attempt. I only caught 5 kokanee for the day and one rainbow. But it was still a lovely day on the water. Until next time, Good Fishing!
