Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
Eric Granstrom and I jumped on board with two clients of Shane Magnuson’s the other day, and captured the action at Chelan Falls.
His clients, Ron and Connie Monson, were from Missouri and had never fished for salmon before. They were very impressed.
The first fish that Connie hooked was a wild fish, well over 20 pounds, which was released. Her next fish was as a keeper and it was all she could do to hold it up for a photo. I hooked the next fish and passed the rod over to Ron. It turned out to be a keeper, too and just slightly larger than Connie’s.
The fish hit Super Bait early in the day, and then Shane switched to Mag Lip Flatfish, wrapped with tuna, later on. There are still good numbers of kings hanging out at Chelan Falls and they are in really good shape for this time of year, too. I have been using the launch on the Chelan side of the river here, but have switch to the campground park on the Douglas County side now.
There are too many weeds around the other launch with the low water. Both launches are free.
