I moved my boat up to Lake Wenatchee last week, in hopes of a sockeye season opener. Well, we’re still waiting. When I left town the count was at 22,643. As of Monday it was at 23,140. I have been told that a season could open if we get 25,000 over Tumwater Dam. Hard to say if we will get there at the rate they are coming up the Wenatchee. Of course since my boat is at Lake Wenatchee the salmon bite has really come on at Brewster. There were over 150 fish turned in for the derby. That’s pretty hot fishing. I am very eager to get up there. Of course if I run up and move my boat back home to go to Brewster, there will be a big shot of fish up the Wenatchee and sockeye season will open. That’s my kind of luck. While I am waiting I decided to grab my fly rod and try the Icicle. It is amazing. If you don’t get a fish swatting your fly on every cast you’ve missed the water! Now is the time for wet wading. If you have a couple of Parachute Adams in your bag you are good to go.
