Omak cutthroat

Late autumn is prime time for cutthroat anywhere in the state, and particularly for the big Lahontan-strain fish in Omak Lake. Anton Jones, a charter owner on Lake Chelan, said a recent trip with friends to Omak resulted in a catch rate of about 10 cutts per hour, once his sonar located the fish. The trout ran from 12 inches to better than 5 pounds, and Jones said the bay where the north end launch is located was as good as the water farther away.

He recommends Kingfisher Lite spoons in cookies ‘n cream, or chartreuse Silver Horde plugs.

Depth is critical, he said, thus the importance of electronic aids. He would have expected the fish to be shallow as water temps cooled this time of year — maybe surface to 20 feet or so — but found them on the screen at 80 feet.
