Lance Effrig, of Washington Guide Service, had been out hunting for two weeks, but when I called and asked about the kokanee fishing on Lake Chelan, he was eager to go. He and his wife Cindy met me at the State Park at 7 a.m. on Thursday morning, and after putting the riggers on and setting up rods we headed out to the 200-foot depth and ran out a variety of Kokabow spinners and blades. He ran two riggers on one side of the boat and I ran two on the other. We set one rigger at 80 feet and the other at 60 feet. Lance has had good luck with greens and purples on Lake Chelan, so he put those colors on his two rods. I had the rods with the Eclipse blade and Ravisher spinner on one and a Gold blade and Ravisher spinner on the other. The leaders were long; from 18 to 22 inches, and Cindy kept the boat at between 1.3 and 1.4 mph. It didn’t take long to find the fish, and we got our first fish within minutes after putting the gear out. The bites came fast after that. We got 20 fish in about 90 minutes. The fish were all 9 ½ to 10 inches.
