Monday’s forecast for Lake Chelan looked good enough for me to invite some old friends to head up there and see if we could catch some kokanee. Jim Passage, who has taken me along on several fly fishing trips for steelhead on the Methow River was eager to go. Dennis Broughton, master fly rod maker and converter of a couple of my rods from spinning to casting guides was the other to join us. I had heard reports of good fishing above the Yacht Club, so we headed up to the Stairs to start. I found no fish around and we move all the way up to 25 Mile Creek. We got a couple here and worked our way back down the lake all the way to Rocky Point. I was very disappointed in the numbers of fish we caught, but as Jim Passage pointed out: “Today was special. It was not about the fish. It was about three friends sharing stories and enjoying each other’s company. Thank you for organizing the journey.” Well said Jim. The fish rarely interrupted us on Monday. I really look forward to the next opportunity to get out on the water with these two guys.
The view from 25 Mile Creek of the mountains freshly covered in snow was spectacular.
