The big news in our region is the opening of summer salmon and sockeye fishing from Tri-Cities to Priest Rapids Dam on June 16th. The forecasts for both species is very good this year. Another busy fishery will be in Leavenworth. A new stretch of the Wenatchee River opened to fishing for spring salmon. The area is from the Hwy. 2 Bridge crossing the Wenatchee River in Leavenworth to the upstream point of the confluence with the Icicle River and from that point to a line perpendicular with the Wenatchee River to the opposite riverbank (adjacent to the Leavenworth Golf Course). It will be open through June 30th. Fishing on the Icicle has really picked up recently. Also, every year I hear from Phil Anderson, former WDFW Director when he comes over here with this family to do some fishing. He was interested in trying Jameson Lake and I suggested the area above the middle launch on Jameson and to fish up the south shore. He did and he had a great time. Thinking of him, I stopped at Jack’s Resort on my way home from fishing at Banks. My wife loves their coconut cream pie. I earned some big points!
