By Dave Graybill
I had so much fun fishing with my niece Ellie Coen that I invited her to try the sockeye fishing at Lake Wenatchee. This time I also had my other niece Sophie Graybill along. I had checked the weather and it looked like Tuesday would be a good day to be on the water, so off we went. I was actually surprised at how calm it was when we shoved off from Sockeye Point and headed down to West Point to start our day. I drilled the two girls on what to do when we got a fish and they got to put it into practice at 6 a.m. sharp, when Sophie landed her first sockeye. Ellie got one in the boat soon after. Things got a little crazy there for a while when we hooked two sockeye at the same time. It was a scramble, but I managed to scoop up both fish. There was quite a tangle with two fish in the net, but we got everything sorted out and got our gear back in the water. We wound up with seven nice sockeye by 8 a.m., and then the bite died. That was okay. We had a terrific morning.
I’m in the background celebrating landing a double. Sophie Graybill is on the left and Ellie Coen on the right.
