I made another trip to the Brewster Pool to fish for sockeye. I am getting worse at it. We got eight fish on Tuesday, my buddy James got five on Wednesday and I could only scratch out two fish on Thursday. I just doesn’t seem possible. Over three hundred thousand sockeye have passed over Wells Dam, so you’d think I could get a limit by accident. Not me. I like to brag about my catches like any other angler, but I have nothing to brag about my success on Thursday. I tried different leader lengths, different types of hookies, tried no hoochie rigs and everything else I could think of to change my luck. Nothing worked. I haven’t given up on the Brewster Pool. I will make another trip up there next week. Things could be completely different then. I have to be honest though, it was a very frustrating day. The water temperature at the mouth of the Okanogan was 68 degrees and with the hot weather in the forecast the fish could really stack up. Maybe when the thermal barrier is firmly in place my luck will change.
