Well, we can pretty much put a fork in October, and start thinking about what to do in November in terms of fishing around here. There are a few opportunities that come to my mind. Anglers should be able to count on very good fishing for triploid rainbow on Rufus Woods Reservoir. Terrific fishing has been the rule all summer and fall and there’s no reason to think it will slow down this winter. Fishing for kokanee on Lake Chelan can be good to great on Lake Chelan starting in November. If the fishing is as good this year as it has been in the past, catches of both kokanee and cutthroat are possible. Look for schools deep above the Yacht Club. Stock up on Kokabow Tackle to get them. My top choices would be the orange squidders and the Ravisher spinner. They have worked great in November in past seasons for me. It’s time to be thinking about the rainbow fishing out of Spring Canyon on Lake Roosevelt, too. Trolling for rainbow can be very productive, and the same Kokabow combos that work on Chelan get the rainbow on Roosevelt, too. Fishing from the shore at Spring Canyon and Keller should be very good as well.
Here are examples of the kokanee and cutthroat that can be caught in November on Lake Chelan.
