Wanapum Ladder Exit
This is the new extension to the fish ladder at Wanapum Dam. This allows fish to make it above the dam with the low water levels. As you can see both the summer-run kings and sockeye are using it.
Here you will find current information on fishing in Central Washington State.

I grew up in Central Washington and began writing about the outdoors in the mid 70s. I began broadcasting report on outdoor recreation on KOZI Radio in Lake Chelan in 1991. My reports are now carried on several radio stations and many newspapers in Washington. The reports give what’s happening and how-to information on fishing for bass, perch, walleye, trout, kokanee, salmon, steelhead and other species.
