I continue to be surprised at how little pressure there is on the Lake Wenatchee sockeye fishery. Granted, we had a couple of windy days that may have discouraged many anglers. I managed to get four limits on one of these windy days and had a tough time on another. However, the number of boats are few compared to most years. There were about 60 boats out on the opener, and I think even fewer since. This should extend the good fishing everyone is enjoying this year. There are still plenty of fish to harvest in Lake Wenatchee, and the condition of the fish is excellent. If you get your boat speed right, you’ll get fish. Check out my column in the Exchange newspapers to get the details on what I am using to get limits of sockeye. I want to take a break from sockeye fishing and do some walleye fishing on Potholes. Skies are clear, and if I get out early and off the lake early to beat the heat it should be great. I also got word that sturgeon fishing on Lake Roosevelt will open above China Bend on September 1st. I sure want to try this section.
Here I am with (from left) my niece Sophie, brother Lane and another niece Ellie Coen, with four limits of sockeye from Lake Wenatchee.
