Most pics I get from Anton Jones show big numbers of Lake Chelan Mackinaw on a stick, but one he sent out today shows a whole lotta kokanee on a stringer.
And the owner of Darrell & Dad’s Family Guide Service (866-360-1523) reports that the koke bite at the east end of the big ol’ fjord is “as good as it can get.”
“The area near Lakeside Park is best. Trolling those Mack’s Lures mini Cha Cha Squidders and Kokanee Pro Wedding Rings rigged behind Mack’s Lures Flash Lites caught loads of 11-inch kokanee,” he says in an email fishing report sent out this afternoon. “Bait those presentations with Pautzke’s Fire Corn in natural and orange. A 000 or 0000 dodger works well too. Fish 15 to 25 feet down over a 45- to 65-foot bottom.”
