I got an invite from my friend Brian Anantatmula to go fishing on Lake Chelan. His son Josh and daughters Avary and Brinley were going fish for kokanee and wanted to see if wanted to come along. I have fished with these folks many times over the years. On my first trip with Josh, he was just turning six years old. Now, he graduated from high school and was heading off for his mission with this church. Time flies. We had limited Brian’s boat in the past with this group on board, but it wasn’t to be last Saturday. We looked all over the lower basin and got just a few. We kept moving to new spots as the cutthroat kept taking our baits. We drove all the way up to The Fences and picked up just one more. Josh hooked and landed the first lake trout they had ever caught up here, and when we crossed over to the far shore, we really got into them. We landed four more lake trout that averaged 3 or 4 pounds and were a handful on our light kokanee gear. In spite of the big crowds, we had a really fun day on Lake Chelan.
