Anglers who enjoy fishing for lake trout on Lake Chelan should be aware that the fish are in spawning mode right now, but fish can still be taken. According to Anton Jones, Darrell and Dad’s Family Guide Service, he is still getting good numbers of lakers between the Monument and the State Park. Fishing on Mack Bar and the Trench in the lower basin could be tough for a few weeks. The fish that are coming off the spawn will be hungry. For best success, troll near the bottom in 120 to 140 feet of water. If the bite is slow in the State Park area, try moving further up the lake toward the narrows. The same 120- to 140- foot depth is productive in this part of the lake, too. Jones has had some luck in the very deep water, 220 to 340 feet deep, above the Narrows recently as well. He suggests trying the Rushin’ Salmon Wobblers in purple glow and green mackerel. He also is still getting lake trout on the good ol’ Worden Lure U-20 Flatfish in the purple glow color. He prefers to run his baits at 1.4 to 1.6 miles per hour on his gps.
