As we move further into winter there are still plenty of options for anglers. Whether you still have your boat in service, or if you are planning to fish from shore, there are fish to be caught on several waters here in Central Washington. High on many boater’s list is the kokanee fishing on Lake Chelan. Fishing is best above the Yacht Club at the area known as The Stairs. Fish are deep now. The last time I fished up here I got fish as deep as 130 feet. I fished from shore on Lake Roosevelt at Keller last week, and I am sure I would have done better if I would have been trolling here. There are still good days right now and fishing will get better and better as the lake level drops. It won’t be long before big kokanee show up in the lower reaches of the big reservoir. I am eager to get up to Rufus Woods again and try for big triploids from shore near the net pens. Odds are good to get a limit of fish from the shore here, and I want to try from Brants Landing, too. Fly fishers aren’t out the action either. I am planning to give Rocky Ford Creek a try very soon.
Fat kokanee and cutthroat are available right now on Lake Chelan. Also shown is one of my favorite Kokabow blades and spinners.
