When I was on my way to Wapato Lake last Saturday I noticed a lot of boats out on Lake Chelan. This is the time of year I expect to see people out fishing for kokanee, and then I learned that there was a kokanee derby going on. It was the Something Catchy Derby, and there were 35 adults and 15 kids participating. I was told that fishing was pretty good, and what was really exciting was the size of the kokanee. The biggest fish was over 15 inches long. There were a lot of kokanee turned in that were over 13 inches and many that were 14 inches long. The biggest concentration of boats that I observed were over by the Blue Roofs, and I heard that fishing was good off Chelan Shores. If you are interested in learning the results of the derby, that includes kokanee, lake trout, cutthroat and trout catches, you can go to I think I will plan on a trip to Chelan very soon. Looks like the weather is going to be hot and sunny on Saturday, so that would be a good day to get out and look for kokanee.
