Friday, November 5, 2021
By Dave Graybill
I often talk about the fact that we have many clear and sunny days here in the region in the fall and winter. This past week they were hard to find. I did get out on Lake Chelan when we had some sun and calm water earlier in the week, but the balance of the week was very wet. I looked back to see what I was doing in November in years past and found some photos of fishing out of Keller for rainbow. I will troll Lake Roosevelt until I have to button up the boat for the winter, and then I switch to fishing from shore. I have had very good success catching rainbow of 16 to 22 inches from the shore at Spring Canyon and Keller. At Spring Canyon, I walk down to the beach below the swimming area and cast from there. At Keller, I drive along the shore to the east of the marina to a spot that is fairly close to the water. I use a sliding sinker rig and put a large pinch of marshmallow on the hook to float a shrimp with the head removed. The quality of the triploid rainbow we catch is outstanding.
My fishing buddy Brian Anantatmula holds one of the rainbow we caught trolling at Keller in November a couple of years ago.
