Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
I finally got back up to fish for sockeye at the Brewster Pool.
This time I took Brian Anatatmula, his son Josh, his Mom Linda and Dad Mohan. I was a bit worried about fishing in the crowd up there, but found that there were fewer than a hundred boats on the Pool on Saturday.
Fishing was easy and the sockeye cooperated. We got off to a slow start, and had only two fish in the cooler by 8 o’clock. We weren’t seeing a lot of action, but I felt that we could do better, even though it was getting late for the traditional sockeye bite up here.
Brian and I tried all kinds of different hoochie rigs, and then I dug out something I had tied up while fishing on Lake Wenatchee on Thursday, but never put out. It was a three hook rig, with three orange beads between the last two hooks. That did the trick.
Fortunately for us the sockeye bite last until one o’clock and we finished the day with nine fish in the cooler. When I filleted the fish they were great, too.
Want some sockeye? Better get to the Brewster Pool!
