We have a long weekend coming up with President’s Day on Monday, so I was thinking about what I would recommend for a fishing trip. If you want to put a boat on the water, the trout fishing on Lake Roosevelt has been good. Limits of trout that average 16 inches are possible. Anglers are fishing out of Spring Canyon and Keller and trolling basically kokanee type gear to get their rainbow. Another good place to launch a boat is on Lake Chelan. Anglers are launching out of the State Park or Mill Bay and running up as far as Michell Creek to find the kokanee. There are days that some anglers are even limiting on kokanee, and there are lot of fish that are measuring 13 to 14 inches. There are a couple of places I would suggest to fish from shore right now. Both the Federal Park at Keller and Spring Canyon can be very good. Another spot that is producing some nice rainbow is Billy Clapp, right below the boat launch. The ice has cleared off and it is kind of a thrash to launch a small boat here, but there are people who drive across the sand to do it.
