Lots of sockeye fishing options in central Washington

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

Good news for those who are after sockeye salmon this season. Fishing is good at the Brewster Pool. Most days are smoke clear and my brother Rick limited his boat in just two hours recently.

I would encourage people to visit the communities of Pateros and Brewster and purchase your supplies while in the area. The Red Cross helping out those that have lost their homes, and the local businesses could use our support, too. These businesses have provided services to anglers for years, and they could really use our business now.

The sockeye fishing is also very good below Wells Dam and even at Chelan Falls. The Lake Wenatchee sockeye fishing has been tough, due to high winds. The road through Plain has been open since the 19th, so you can get to the lake and I know people are launching at the State Park.

The weather forecast for the Lake Wenatchee area for later in the week isn’t good, so Brewster may be the best option. Pink hoochies are still be best choice, and fish are being taken anywhere from 15 to 40 feet deep at Brewster. Fish are being found at 40 to 50 feet deep on Lake Wenatchee.
