Plenty of late summer fishing choices in north central Washington area

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

Summer run salmon anglers have lots of places to fish on the main stem Columbia River, and even the Wenatchee River is open to fishing.

Now the Department of Fish and Wildlife has added a new location to take summer runs. Now open is the Lake Chelan Tailrace, which is the area from the powerhouse to the railroad bridge, which is at Chelan Falls.

Night closure and anti-snagging rules are in effect. Internal combustion engines are prohibited. Anglers must stay downstream of the Chelan County PUD boundary signs on the northern shoreline.

Fishing along the southwest shoreline is limited to wading only, no fishing from the bank in this area. No fishing is allowed in the Chelan Powerhouse Park swimming area. All fish with a floy tag or holes punched in their tails must be released. The limit is six Chinook, with up to three being adults, with only one being a wild adult salmon.

Anglers are required to have a current fishing license, including the Salmon Steelhead Endorsement Stamp. This fishery was made possible through funds generated through the Endorsement Stamp program. For more details visit the WDFW web site.
