I wasn’t able to get out on Lake Chelan to try the kokanee fishing. I had to change my plans. So, I called Keith Roe to see what was going on up in Okanogan County. He usually has some good fishing reports for me for that area of the state. Well, not this time. We are in that “in between” part of the winter. There isn’t enough ice on the lakes that we like to fish and even the lakes that open water are slow right now. Although I have had pretty good luck at Rufus Woods at Brandts Landing, the bank fishing for triploids at the net pens has been very slow. One thing Keith mentioned is that the Colville tribe didn’t do a fall release this year. Due to high water temperatures this spring, they had to release their fish. That’s both good and bad news. The bad news is that aren’t as many fish available to anglers this winter. The good news is that there are more big fish available. I also wanted to remind anglers that there is a 14-inch minimum on trout from Rufus Woods this season. Looks like need to get back down to Rocky Ford Creek.
