Okanogan Area Fish Report 06-01-07
by Kaufman Streamborn
Chopaka has provided some very large rainbows, but their numbers are down, with Smallie numbers up.?? Crowds are down, too, though, so might be worth meeting some "piggy fish" on Damsels, Callibaetis, Chironomids, etc?Ķ?? before it gets re-habbed this fall.??
Damsel time is upon us, and there's been some good reports coming from Aeneas, Sinlahekin Blue, Big Twin and others.?? Given a couple, few days, this area is well worth the small journey!
5 hours NORTH OF SEATTLE

Salmonfly adults have moved upstream of Maupin, while Goldens are appearing in solid numbers.?? Big Golden adults should provide heady, reliable action over the next week or two.?? Caddis and PED's are well-established events that could divert the trout's focus away from the big bugs when available, with a few PMD's and the promise of Green Drakes also upon us.?? Have fun!
