If you haven’t winterized your boat and like to take advantage of the many fishing opportunities, we have here in the region over the winter months, here are a couple of possibilities for the weekend. The kokanee fishing on Lake Chelan is off to a slower start than last year at this time, but it is something to try. One way to go about it would be to fish for Chinook salmon first. These have been unusually abundant this year and are definitely worth some effort. Once you have caught your king, since the limit is one, you can switch over to kokanee fishing. Kings are being caught in the lower basin in the area of Rocky Point, and although my brother and I marked a lot of kokanee here while we were fishing for kings, it appeared the schools were made up of smaller fish. I would look from the Yacht Club up for kokanee. Another species that is very abundant in Chelan is cutthroat. These can be found all over the lake and can be caught in limit numbers. While kings and kokanee will be deep, most of the cutthroat can be caught trolling lures flatlined out the back of the boat.
