Outdoor writer Dave Graybill keeping tabs on Wenatchee River fishery

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

I have been keeping a close eye on the Wenatchee River.

There are a couple of holes that I like to fish with a bobber and jig, and the river has just been too high the past few weeks.  It is settling down, though, and I am going to give it a try very soon.

I may even get a chance to float it pulling plugs, which can be deadly this time of year.  Either way I will be sure to let you know how it’s fishing.  I know there are a lot fish in the Wenatchee this year.

I have also noticed that the Columbia River below Rock Island Dam has come up a long ways.  Grant County PUD is raising the level of the river behind Wanapum Dam as their repairs are being completed.

They have it up to minimum levels now and many anglers are eager to get out on the river and try some of the walleye spots that can be productive in the winter.

There will be some announcements about the opening of some of the accesses to the river toward the end of the month.

I am getting close to getting my next E-Letter done, and if you want to get a copy of my winter forecasts and features go to my web site at FishingMagician.com and click on the E-Letter button.  You can sign up for free.
