I continue to hear good reports on the kokanee fishing on Lake Chelan. Anglers are getting limits of fish of 10 to 12 inches. The best action is still above the Yacht Club, but it won’t be long before they migrate into even lower reaches of the lake. The fish are still deep, and downriggers are being used to get them. I fish Lake Chelan earlier this winter, and I put two rods on downriggers and two out the back of the boat with 4 ounce cannon balls. Even though we were marking schools at 120 feet, we still got fish on the back rods that were out 70 to 100 feet. The fishing for giant kokanee on Lake Roosevelt is getting better and better. The lake continues to drop, and fish are being taken from the Keller area all the way down to the can line above the dam. Last time I was up there I fished with Alan Greenbalgh, owner of Kokabow Fishing Tackle. I shot a video of him giving some great information about kokanee strategies.
