I have mentioned that I have made a couple of walleye fishing trips, with mixed success, and I have had a couple of great days on Lake Chelan fishing for kokanee. I wanted to fill you in on what I have learned about trout fishing, particularly up north, in Okanogan County. The best reports are coming from the Conconully lakes. Every year the two lakes provide excellent trout fishing in the spring, and this year has been especially good. Trout are running 15 to 18 inches for the most part, and that’s better than most years. Don’t forget, both of these lakes offer terrific bass fishing. Kokanee fishing has been slow so far this season. Spectacle Lake is often overlooked, I think primarily due to its size. It is long and narrow and not that big. The past couple of seasons it has produced some very nice catches of bigger rainbow than average, and decent kokanee fishing for fish averaging 12 inches. The perch and bass fishing is good enough to attract anglers to Spectacle for that reason only. Leader Lake is another popular Okanogan County lake that has been providing good fishing for trout, bass, perch and bluegill this year.
