I recently reported that I had pulled my boat off Lake Wenatchee. I had a great season up there, fishing 14 times and limiting on most all of them. Friends of mine did limit every time they went out. I got word this week that fishing on Lake Wenatchee will close one hour after sunset on August 31st. Most of the fish have moved up into the White River to the spawning grounds, so fishing had slowed considerably. Also closing early this year is the very popular Buoy 10 fishery for salmon at the mouth of the Columbia River. Anglers have already met their quota in this area. Something that is opening now is the newly remodeled Discovery Center at Rocky Reach Dam. It is open right now and people can visit the center from Tuesday through Saturday year-round. The doors are open from 9:30 until 5 p.m. On Saturday, August 28th, you can e-mail a reservation for a special 90-minute tour of the new center. Send your request to The center has been closed for two years, while the new exhibits were constructed. Many of the exhibits are highly interactive, and something that the kids will particularly enjoy.
After two years in the making, the new Discovery Center at Rocky Reach Dam is opening to the public.
