Opening Season Summer-Runs and Sockeye
What a great week for the opening of the season for summer-run and sockeye salmon. The weather has been great and conditions below Wanapum Dam were the best I have ever seen for trolling. Summer-runs and sockeye returns have been much higher than predicated. I had a great opening day, and we are in for some great fishing this summer. I also got a tour of the fish passage methods at both Wanapum and Priest Rapids dams. It has been a tradition that I spend most opening days of salmon sea...

Cle Elum River
It has been a very busy week. I floated the Cle Elum River last Monday, tried Lake Chelan for kokanee on Thursday, and on Friday traveled to Omak for the Colville Confederated Tribe’s First Fish Celebration. Rollie Schmitten and I had floated the upper Yakima River, above Cle Elum, early this spring, and we set up a float on the Cle Elum River with Troutwater guide Johnny Boitano right after we got back. The Cle Elum River enters the Yakima above the town of Cle Elum and when we drifted...

Fishing Season Has Arrived!
Fishing season has finally arrived and the Mack's Lure staff has been on the water, in full force! During the month of May, Bob Schmidt, Bobby Loomis and myself have been primarily fishing the Washington lakes and rivers with tremendous success. We have all met and fished with a lot of great people during our fishing expeditions and I'd like to take this time to share it with you, the reader. On the 1st of May, Bobby Loomis fished with Doug Allen at Potholes Reservoir just outside of Moses ...

Upcoming Central Washington Events
Anglers are itching to get at the spring salmon that have moved up the Columbia River. The seasons on both the Wenatchee and Icicle Rivers could be very good, if water conditions allow for fishing. That is just one fishery that has anglers occupied here in Central Washington, and there are some events coming up that families will want to know about, too. The previous delays in the opening of the Wenatchee River to spring salmon season were due to language in the permit that allowed fishin...

Kokanee Primer Part 3: Interview with a Kokanee
KOKANEE: Ok, I'll admit it. I'm moody. But that does not mean I'm impossible. But being moody is as much fun for me as it is for the fisherman.DUDE: You know, that might not be the case for all kokanee fishermen. Some can spend all day chasing you with no results. That is not fun.KOKANEE: I suppose it is all in your perspective.DUDE: So tell me why some days you cannot resist one particular color, and then the very next day you shun it.KOKANEE: Well, it is a little more complica...

Spring has definitely arrived here in Central Washington. We are getting lots of sunny weather, with the occasional sprinkle. There are some blustery days, but anglers that get on the water early are enjoying a variety of early season fishing. Everything from kokanee to walleye and trout are being chased at a variety of lakes in the region.

Evergreen RV Show
Washington State is a truly remarkable place to own an RV. There are few places in the world where rain forests, ocean beaches, sage brush, and volcanic mountain ranges are all within a few hours’ drive of each other. Exploring, and even getting to know, some of these wondrous natural places can be even easier in your own RV. If fishing is your passion, imagine if the next time you drove by an isolated free stone creek or a boat ramp less traveled, you could chose to actually stay awhile. Th...
