By Dave Graybill
As you may know Leavenworth got buried in four feet of snow in the recent storm. I have done a lot of digging, and thanks to wonderful neighbors got my roof shoveled off. I won’t be using my front door until spring, but that’s okay. We have another way into the house. I have been busy packing for a survey of ice fishing lakes. My plan is to visit Curlew Lake, Bonaparte Lake, Palmer and Patterson, over two-day period. I did some checking and Curlew, Bonaparte and Patterson lakes are all over 2,000 feet in elevation, and the ice should be holding up. Palmer may be questionable as it is at just over eleven hundred feet. I don’t think I would go out on Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee now, and it’s at eighteen hundred feet, but I hear that the blanket of snow has thinned the ice and put a lot of water on top of it. I will let you know what I learn about the conditions and the fishing when I return. If you want to launch a boat, I would look to Spring Canyon, Keller and above Chief Joseph Dam. All of these launches are well maintained throughout the winter.
