Monday, November 8, 2021
By Dave Graybill
I stopped by the Icicle River last Saturday to see what was going on, and I found a bunch of happy anglers. There was a group fishing from the handicapped platform, and they already had four fish on the bank. While I visited with them I saw an angler land a fish at the boat launch below us. Success is very high right now on the Icicle, and I want to remind anglers that the coho fishery will remain open until the end of November. I also got word that fishing for Chinook and coho salmon is open now at the Ringold Hatchery. There were 250,000 coho released from the facility in 2020 and there are enough fish returning to allow for a fishery. Anglers can retain two adults per day here. The popular steelhead fishery here is closed due to the low returns again this year. Anglers will want to get on this right away. It will only be open for coho and Chinook through November 15th. I am going to switch my efforts to fishing for kokanee and Lake Chelan and bank fishing for rainbow on Lake Roosevelt and Rufus Woods Reservoir.
