This is what we have been waiting for!
With the opening of the Wenatchee river after being closed for a couple months we expected good fishing and it has not disappointed! We have been experiencing good fishing since it opened with a couple very nice days. We are getting a mix of some darker fish and some very nice, bright, hard fighting fish. We are using our Fetha Styx Chrome 1002,s a 10 foot, light action bobber rod that balances well and is light enough for easy mends and casting light gear but strong enough to reel in native steelhead all day. We have been catching fish on a variety of jig colors and styles with Aerojigs fishing well. The weather has not been too good on most days with some serious snow a couple days but with nicer weather on the horizon the fishing should stay good and the weather even nicer will make for some very nice late February and March fishing.
We have the Wenatchee sportsman show this coming weekend, February 21 through 23 at the Town Toyota center. Make sure and come on down and see us and get your trip lined up for the record summer and spring runs before it gets filled up or for steelhead right now when it hot. We will have one of the Star rafts that we use as well as one for sale at special show pricing. I am also booking for Kokanee trips on beautiful Lake Chelan. The Kokanee are just starting to bight and all early indications are that they are very good size like last year. I love when everything that we have been waiting for arrives with a bang. We will have good fishing for the next couple of months and then on to spring and summer. Get your dates reserved now before it all fills up.
