Kokanee fishing has been the biggest attraction to winter anglers the past few seasons. There were giant kokanee being caught on Lake Roosevelt, and limits of kokanee were the standard on Lake Chelan. This year could be different. There are signs that there could be better kokanee fishing on Lake Roosevelt, but just how big the fish will be is a question. I caught a kokanee on September 25th, and we got one last week, but they were just 12 to 13 inches. It is very early to be making forecasts for Lake Roosevelt kokanee, though. I am going to fish for kokanee on Lake Chelan tomorrow. What I have heard is that there are fish being taken, but they are running small. I hope to find out just how plentiful they are and what size the kokanee are on Chelan this winter. I am still getting reports of big fish being taken on Rufus Woods. When I was there on November 17th. My brother in law got a 17 ½-inch rainbow and a 23-inch triploid that weighed at least 5 pounds. So far it looks like Rufus Woods is the place to fish this early winter season.
