By Dave Graybill
My wife Eileen and I picked up Tom and Diane Verschueren in Dryden at eight and then traveled to Chelan and launched the boat at Mill Bay. From there we ran down to Chelan Shores. We found good numbers of kokanee here and the Kokabow squid spinners and blades were working great. We found schools of fish in 30 to 90 feet of water, and Tom found 41 pulls the magic depth on the rods with the 3-ounce cannon ball weights. We went out a bit further with the rods with 2-ounce weights. The best leader length was 14 inches and our white shoe peg corn was doused with Graybills Guide Formula Craw/Anise flavor. I tried to keep my speed at about 1.5 mph. It was pretty bumpy out there with all the boat and jet ski traffic, but we got three limits of kokanee. We got several that were 15 inches long. I noticed when I was vacuum sealing the fish that the majority were adipose fin clipped. Also, watch out for chunks of logs and other debris when boating on Lake Chelan right now. I have enjoyed a couple of fresh kokanee dinners recently, and that makes me even more eager to get some more.
