The heavy rains that fell in Leavenworth recently had the desired effect on the coho fishing. Lots of fresh fish have moved into the Icicle River, and anglers are having terrific success. I talked to several anglers yesterday and witnessed good catches of very nice coho earlier in the week. Some of the more popular spots are off East Leavenworth Road and below the deadline below the hatchery. I have seen coho rolling in the Icicle since I started fishing it three weeks ago, but nothing like what I saw yesterday. Fish are splashing and rolling all over the river and you can see the dorsal fins of fish pushing up through the shallow spots. I have been in the habit of getting to the river at first light, but that isn’t necessary now. You can catch these fish all day long. I visited the river yesterday at about 11 o’clock and there was plenty of room in the stretch below the hatchery. Jigs are still the preferred lures to cast, but they are willing to chase a spinner now. Bright oranges and pinks are still the best colors. It’s game on for the Icicle coho fishery!
