Lake Wenatchee sockeye fishery will wrap up after Labor Day

The successful Lake Wenatchee sockeye fishery will come to an end on Monday, Sept. 1 one hour after official sunset.

State Fish and Wildlife says by then the bulk of the adult sockeye in the lake will have migrated up into the spawning grounds of the White and Little Wenatchee rivers.

Anglers have also said the condition of the sockeye still in the lake has deteriorated, and state Fish and Wildlife says the closure will reduce unnecessary impacts to bull trout.
