Now that we know that Chinook salmon exist in Lake Chelan, thanks to reports like these, and that the population has increased, is there a concern of everyone going out and decimating the fish? Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist Travis Maitland says the rules that are in place will ensure that doesn’t happen…
So they’re in there, but how do you catch them? Maitland says to get busy talking with other fishermen and go to the experts…
Of course, a great source of information is Rick Graybill at Hooked On Toys. Rick guided on Lake Chelan for years and can give you the insight on where, how deep, and what to use if you’d like to try for Chinook Salmon.

Wenatchee gave up the lead in the bottom of the 9th and lost the game in the 10th as Victoria came back to win 5-4 Wednesday…
