I spent some time on Saturday getting the boat cover cleared of snow and making sure that the boat would be ready if I planned a fishing adventure on the water anytime soon. In previous years I had buttoned everything up when I got the first snowstorm in Leavenworth. This often happens in November. Then the weather changes and we have some very nice clear and sunny days, with temperatures that are tolerable. I have some photos showing some terrific fish caught at the net pens on Rufus Woods in late December. When the boat was taken care of I put another load of fish through the smoker. It was another batch of a mix of triploid rainbow trout and sockeye. Since I had been on a smoking binge I also did a load of kokanee. So, I am pretty well set for smoked fish now. I do plan to add to my supply of triploids, though. Maybe as soon as early next week I may give the bank fishing a try at Brandts Landing. This federal park above Chief Joseph Dam has produced some nice fish for me in the winter. I will take a supply of wood and make a nice fire to warm me while I wait for a bite.
