Monday, November 30, 2020

Wow. November sure flew by. It was a frustrating month. The weather was so unsettled that it was very difficult to get out on the water. In spite of the cold weather forecast for last Friday, I talked my brother in law Tom Verschueren into going to Lake Chelan to try and see if we could find some kokanee. We have had some good days in the past on Chelan in the winter, so he was willing to go. We ran from the State Park launch up to Green’s Landing, which is just above the Yacht Club channel. We got one bite here and then landed a fish right where the channel opens. We were getting a few hits but not hooking up. It was cold but calm, so I took the opportunity to run way up lake and tried above 25 Mile Creek. No dice. Heading back down to Mitchell Creek we did put a couple of fish in the cooler. I got one fish at 120 feet on a rigger, but most of the fish were taken at around 100 feet. The back rods had 4 ounce lead balls rigged to slide, and they produced as well as the riggers. Kokabow blades in subdued purples and blues with orange or Ravisher spinners accounted for all our bites.
All but one of the kokanee we got were 12-inchers on Lake Chelan last Friday.
