By Dave Graybill
On Father’s Day, I took my daughter Whitney to her second most favorite place to fish—Lake Chelan. We have had a blast catching kokanee on the lake, and it looked like the weather was going to be nice, so off we went. I left the downriggers at home, figuring the fish were going to be in the fairly shallow water near Lakeside Park. I put three ounce sinkers on two rods and two ounce sinkers out the back. I had a selection of the new Copper Series blades and orange squids on our rods and all were baited with white shoe peg corn, scented with Graybill’s Guide Formula Kokanee flavor. I looked and looked for schools of kokanee and didn’t see any, but we were catching fish. It wasn’t hot but we were hooking and landing fish here and there, trolling a path along the buoys in about 40 feet of water. The boat chop got worse and worse as the jet skiers and wake board boats appeared. We ran up above the park and got into a nice bite in the afternoon. When we had enough of the boat chop we headed for the launch with 13 nice kokanee in the cooler.
My daughter Whitney and I had a great time catching kokanee on Lake Chelan on Father’s Day.
