Monday, September 5, 2022
By Dave Graybill
Monday, September 5th I got a message from my brother Rick that he and a couple of his fishing buddies had a great evening of fishing for kings on Lake Chelan. They landed two fish and got at least two other good hits in just a few hours on the lake. My wife and I had been talking about getting out somewhere in the evening, since it has been so darn hot during the day. This sounded like a good thing to try. We launched at Mill Bay and ran across to Party Point and started trolling down toward Chelan off this shore in about 200 feet of water. I was pulling plug-cut herring behind size 0 dodgers. I saw a couple of promising marks and put my riggers down to 150 and 170 feet deep. I did notice a few kokanee schools while we were trolling along. When I checked my bait once they both came in clean, but when I checked them later, one bait was pulled down from the top hook and the other had a definite tooth mark that most likely came from a light take. We only fished for about an hour and it was a great way to spend an evening.
I got this small king fishing above the State Park one evening in August a couple of years ago.
