Lake Chelan

Hi gang,

They were nice fish this time out!

Chelan is starting, the fish averaged 15” with a lot of them hitting the 16 ¼ mark. Didn’t see many fish caught but for some reason my wife Kimberly, Richy Harrod of Harrod Outdoors and I “pounded” them Sunday on Chelan! We limited out and probably lost 15 – 18 fish. Cha Cha Squidders, Hot Pink and Hot Orange with Double D dodgers were the ticket. The fish are real weird though, started fishing in 85’ of water early in the a.m., (catching fish in the 45’ – 60’ range), they gradually migrated out to 115’ hugging the bottom.

Chelan is Heating UP!

After the first couple of hours in the a.m. they just gradually moved out to the 115’ depth, the only way we kept hooking fish was fishing the bottom, (strange)! The fish are “solid”, heavy fish, can’t wait till they move down into the shallower water and start really putting on the feed bag. We will be getting some good solid 18” + fish which is unheard of on Chelan! This was the first “bite” that has hit Chelan……… maybe it is going to start finally! (maybe we just got lucky………………..)!

About Kent Cannon

My passion is fishing and hunting as well as traveling throughout the Northwest and writing about those adventures. I was separated from my job a few years ago due to the still ongoing economic downturn. I had spent years working, focusing on things that really were not near and dear to my heart all the while scrambling and climbing to what I perceived as the top. I of course did not realize what I was doing, because I was caught up in the moment, focusing on what I thought was the American dream. Crashing and pushing ever forward like a Lemming headed for a cliff, oblivious the world around me. I was more than a little bitter over loosing my job; it was a good job as far as jobs go and I was making a lot of money so I could live according to the manner in which I wanted to be accustomed. In the process of trying to find another job in an unfavorable economic climate I found something that I had left behind many years ago. I found me! That is how and why I started this website, looking for myself and sharing things that I found along the way. Even though I am older now, suffering a little from arthritis and my hair is now somewhat graying I still have fire in my belly for the next adventure. The more that I seek out my next adventure, the more excited I become!
