My daughter Whitney called asking if I was going to be around last weekend. She would like to come over for a short visit and bring her friend Henry Tsai. Well, sure I said. I never get to see her often enough. I told her about the great sockeye fishing on Lake Wenatchee and she got really excited. I warned her that we would be getting up very early on Sunday morning and she promised she’d up and ready to go. She, Henry, and I left Leavenworth at 5 a.m. and were on the water and fishing before the sun came up over the lake. We had a fish on before I had all the rods out and I thought we would be off the water with our limits in short order. No so. We got two fish in the boat and lost two more by 8 ‘o clock, but there was a very long interval before we found any more biters. I trolled up the lake and across toward Glacier View campground, and wham, wham, we got two more fish fairly quickly. Not my usual limit fishing for the boat, but she and Henry were thrilled to take four nice sockeye home.
