Hook into ample north-central Washington fall fishing choices

Here is the latest fishing report from Anton Jones of Darrell & Dad’s Family Guide Service: Continuing hot is our late fall pattern of trolling the Barrens and the Trench for Mackinaw on Lake Chelan. Also hot is trolling for Lahontan Cutthroat on Omak Lake.


We troll for lakers from 185 to 245 feet deep. Fish within 3 to 5 feet of the bottom and keep your speed around 1 mph. Jeff Drift’s with a piece of Northern Pikeminnow will keep you consistently into the fish. State Fish and Wildlife will soon make it’s annual fall Rainbow trout plant on Roses Lake.They will put in about 20,000 fish that are 2.5 fish to the pound.  They can be caught by a variety of methods. Catch them from shoreline locations with Pautzke’s Firebait in American Wildfire using a 30” leader on a slip sinker rig. You can also catch them trolling using Mack’s Lure Mini Cha Cha Squidders behind a Mack’s Lure 0000 Double D Dodger. Bait those mini cha cha’s with a piece of worm or a small nugget of Pautzke’s Fire Bait.
