Last Friday I was back on Lake Wenatchee. I had my buddy James Lebow and brother in-law Tom Verschuren with me. I had been trying to get Tom out sockeye fishing, but he had a busy travel schedule and couldn’t make it earlier. We actually lost a fish while trolling into the area I like to fish, and once again the sockeye were sleeping in. When the sun hit the water the bite came on. We continued trolling in a line up from West Point to above the Forest Service access, picking up a fish or two on the way. I made a turn up here and headed back down the lake. By the time we reached the dock we left from, we had our three limits. I had pulled my trailer up with us and dropped it off near the State Park, having decided that this would be my last trip for the Lake Wenatchee sockeye season this year. I was still getting good fillets off the fish but knew they would be getting pale soon. It was a terrific season. I fished 14 days, and managed to get limits for the boat on almost all of them.
Not every day was like this on Lake Wenatchee, but when it was calm it was a wonderful place to fish for sockeye.
