I fished Lake Chelan for kokanee with my brother in law Tom Verschuren a couple of weeks ago. We started above the Yacht Club in the area known as the Stairs. We got a couple up there, but I wanted to see if there were fish down below Rocky Point. We found as many or more kokanee schools here than up above, so on Saturday we launched at Mill Bay and ran down there. We had a later start than the previous week, but got into a good bite, and kept busy getting fish. We were fishing 60 to 80 feet deep on the down riggers and were running our back rods out to 100 feet with four once lead balls. We got the first four fish on the new Kokabow High Octane Blue Steel blade, with the Ravisher spinner. We switched out the blades on the other rigs, replacing them with similar colors and added a Ravisher to a couple of them. By noon we had double digit numbers of kokanee and then it slowed way down. We fished for another hour or so and wound up with 13 kokanee and a cutthroat when we headed back to the dock. We talked to a couple of other anglers that had just come in that had been fishing way up lake, and they were getting limits. We’ll start earlier next time and try some areas around Mitchell Creek.
Lake Chelan kokanee and cutthroat are fat and healthy this winter. The Kokabow Copper Series blade and Ravisher spinner is a winner on Chelan year-round.
