When I checked the Lake Wenatchee Info web site last week and looked at the web cam on Fish Lake, it was the first time I had seen anglers out on the ice. We have had some heavy, wet snow and pretty warm temperatures here in Leavenworth, and I wasn’t sure what conditions were like. I thought there would be a couple of inches of slush on top of the ice. I was surprised when I visited the lake on Sunday morning. There was over 50 anglers out, and the conditions were great. No slush at all. The ice was at least six inches thick, and the anglers I visited with were getting a bunch of nice perch. Some were getting limits of perch and even a few nice rainbow. One angler gave me some really great details. He said he looked for about 30 feet of water and would start with some kind of bait to get the first fish. Then he immediately switched to using perch eyes. This is very common. This angler shared something unusual. He had a depth sounder and would mark fish as shallow as ten feet. He would bring his bait up to that depth and get the fish!
Conditions on Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee, were great last weekend, and anglers were catching lots of perch.
