|Lake Chelan fishing news
We catch fish all year
Heated boat for winter
Currently Lake Chelan is a great jig fishery for Mackinaw all Year.
Lake Chelan has set the standard for Mackinaw in the state, having produced two state records that
were caught by my clients. The most recent record was landed by John Hossack of Remond on
December 31rst, 2001, and weighed 35 pounds and 7 ounces. Mackinaw feed on mysis shrimp which
migrate at 100 hundred feet per hour downward. Jigging with a thicker line and appropriate
will get your bait down to where the mack's are feeding at a depth of 10 to 300 ft +. A Jig tipped
Herring, Pike Mino, or suckers will attract Mackes. Whether you're trying to catch a trophy
Mackinaw now is the perfect time for fishing on Lake Chelan.
In August of 2001, Terry's client Lyle R. Smith of Tacoma,
WA landed a state record Mackinaw (Lake) Trout.
The fish weighed 33.65 pounds, and measured 41.75 inches long with a 25.5 inch girth. It was
a #2 Les Davis Dodger double glow dark lime green hoochie . The previous record was set in 1999,

WA landed the newest state record Mackinaw which weighed in at 35.7 pounds and measured 40

the year 2010 another great year to Set another record
