The rooms are homey, the people are convivial, and the lake is sublime. What’s the catch? Well, as it turns out, there are quite a few when you go fishing in Lake Chelan! It’s a lake that stretches nearly 50 miles and it sits adjacent to our lodge. But while we know the ins and outs of the clear blue waters, you’ll want to check the Department of Fish and Wildlife pamphlet for license requirements as well as size and catch limits.
