B-Port Kevin Anderson Jim Passage
Fishing wasn't a good as expected for the June 1st opener of the special triploid season below Chief Joseph Dam. Kevin Anderson (left) and Jim Passage weren't complaining, though.

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.
