A pretty significant group of anglers like to fish Lake Chelan this time of year. They are usually after kokanee, land-locked kings and lake trout. The fishing can be very good for all three of these species, and I particularly like to fish kokanee in the late fall and winter and have had pretty good success in years past. Well, just in time for the Holidays, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has gifted anglers with another reason to fish Lake Chelan this winter. They recently released 24 thousand catchable size triploid rainbow into the lake. They were released at Mill Bay, Don Morse Park and at Lakeside Park. These should offer good fun from the docks for shore anglers this winter. They will be much bigger by spring, too. Another lake that gets a lot of attention this time of year is Roses lake. Why? Because it gets a huge number of catchable rainbow planted in November. It has already received four thousand and is due to get an additional 14 thousand later this month. This will keep anglers bus through the winter and makes spring fishing great on Roses. Check out the new parking area and restrooms at Roses. Nice!
Roses Lake can offer scenic vistas with calm water and great fishing for catchable rainbow this time of year.
