Stehekin Fishing Adventures

Lake Chelan has a wide variety of fish to catch. Fresh water lingcod (burbot), rainbow trout, western slopes cutthroat trout, mackinaw (lake trout), kokanee salmon (silvers), and a few king salmon. The southeast end of the lake has some small mouth bass as well. The silvers, and king salmon run in to the Stehekin River and spawn starting around the end of August. The silvers usually don’t bite but you can catch a few king salmon in the river when they first head up.
