Outdoor writer Dave Graybill says Lake Chelan kokanee fishery shaping up to be a good one

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

This looks like it could be one of the best kokanee fishing seasons in a few years at Lake Chelan.

There are very large schools of fish being graphed deep in the Narrows down to above the Yacht Club, but fishing in the lower basin is still very, very slow. There are rumors over some very large fish taken fishing very deep up lake.

In anticipation of good kokanee fishing here and at other lakes in the region, I am offering a seminar on kokanee fishing techniques at Bob Feil Boats and Motors on Saturday, May 19th, starting at 2 p.m.

I will be opening my tackle box and showing everyone the kind of gear I use to catch kokanee at Lake Chelan, Palmer Lake, Buffalo and other lakes in the region. I will have my favorite rods and reels and will speak in detail on how to fish the different lures and baits.

This will be a great way to make sure that you start the kokanee season off on the right foot. There will be door prizes and refreshments available, too. I hope to see you there!
