I wanted to get one more day of kokanee fishing in before the opening of salmon season, so I had my buddy Bill Hansen meet me in Wenatchee at 5:30 Monday morning. I know that people are getting limits in a very short time if they are on the water at first light. I felt we were in no hurry and thought we could get a bunch, even if we left later. We started fishing at the bottom end if Mill Bay, where we found fish the last time we were out, and sure enough, they were still there. We had a bunch of fish in the first hour or two and then it got slower and slower. After a particularly long interval with no action. I changed the colors that we were using. I went from Kokabow pink blades and spinners to orange, which has always been my favorite on Chelan. Bingo. We got into fish again. I even got an 18-incher. Probably my biggest ever on Chelan. We were beating the heat due to my Artic Cove mister, and when the second battery died, we headed for the dock. We had 18 very nice kokanee in the cooler.
I just had to measure this kokanee I got on Chelan. It stretched the tape to 18 inches!
