One of my long-time favorite fall lakes is Antilon, which is above Wapato Lake outside of Manson at Lake Chelan. This small, scenic lake is loaded with brown trout. I visited Antilon last Friday. When I arrived I found someone in my usual casting location, but Bob Sheehan, retired Forest Service Ranger from Chelan, waved me on, saying he was about to leave. While we visited, he cast a Parachute Adams on his fly rod, and hooked a nice brown. He then left for a meeting in town and took his spot. I cast several different styles and colors of Rooster Tails, and got a couple of fish to follow the lure right up to the shore. What they really liked was a Kastmaster. I got hit a couple of times on these, and when I switched to a frog pattern I hooked and landed a fish of about 12 inches. There a lots of browns of this size in Antilon, and there are some really big ones in here. Casting to the shore from a float tube or pontoon boat would be the perfect way to get them. There is a good place to get to water on the east shore of the lake.
