Lake Chelan kokanee top spot in north central Washington

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

Kokanee fishing has been spectacular at Lake Chelan this season, and it continues to be one of the best fisheries in the region.  If you haven’t tried this yet, or don’t think you are getting your share you’ll want to attend the free seminar at Town Ford on Thursday, May 23.

Bobbie Loomis, of Macks Lure Company, is an expert on kokanee fishing and will be there to give anglers detailed instruction on how to catch them.  He has caught limits of these dandies on Chelan this season and can tell everyone how he does it.

He will cover rods, reels, lines, attractors and baits.  He will also tell folks where to look for them on Chelan.

Also appearing at the seminar will be Shane Magnuson, of Upper Columbia Guide Service.  He will be there to tell people how to catch spring salmon on the Icicle River.

There is a chance the Wenatchee will be open this year and people will want to how fish this river, too.  The seminar will be held at the dealership in East Wenatchee, beginning at 6 p.m.  For information call Town Ford at 509-663-2111.
