My father and I made our first trip to Antilon and had a blast. We had nonstop action from 9:00-3:00. Biggest fish was
1 3/4#. Our 10 fish limit weighed about 14 pounds. We trolled pop gear/ wedding ring tipped with either worms or coon shrimp. We used a 1/2 oz. banana weight to get the gear down. I ran a rapala behind the pop gear and c&r 4 fish, interestingly they were smaller than the fish caught on the baited rigs. We love this lake and it usually does not disappoint. Cheers!

Had a great couple of days exploring this little lake tucked up into the hills North of the town of Manson. My brother-in-law and I hit the upper lake first on Saturday morning but were skunked after an hour and decided to check out the lower lake with our time remaining. Boy am I glad we did! We were in a time crunch and only had about 20 minutes to fish the lower lake, but I was able to bring 3 fish to the tube and had several others on. The first fish was a solid 14" Brown that fought like a champ. Even took out some line when it went for a run. The other 2 were around the 12" mark.

We had to quickly pack up but decided we would come back when we had more time. Luckily we made it back on Sunday evening for the late bite. Not more than five after getting our lines in the water and we were both hooking up again. This time the fish were consistently in the 12" range. Not monsters by any means, but it was still a fun way to spend the last hours of daylight. We were both fishing with Olive Green Wooly Buggers with full sinking lines. In total we brought about 10 fish to the tube, released them all, and had another 5 or 6 that broke off. Great action!

Since it was memorial day weekend, there was quite a number of knuckleheads camping in the area blasting rap music, so that distracted us a bit, but the fishing was good enough to inspire us to come back again and again. We will definitely be checking out this lake more since I've heard there are Browns in the 20" range to be found.

Good luck out there!

We got the chance to fish chelan Saturday with Mav186 on his awesome boat, with salmonbarry. Weather was a little rough but Steve's boat "Mav186" handled the swells like a dream! We really enjoyed the potluck and all the goodies! So nice to have such a great fishing community! We cant wait for the next get together! So many thanks to Rseas and his family for the amazing food! Many thanks to the sponsors giving out awesome gifts! So thankful for Mike and Aaron for everything they do! Thanks to Steve (mav) for letting us fish with him!
We heard the next morning sunday was going to be windy and thunderstorms so we decided to sleep in a little and skip out on the kokanee and try and fish Antilon lake. The lake is a few miles up into the mountains from Manson and we thought it would be sheltered from the wind. Turns out Sunday morning was calm and beautiful. We put in at the boat launch on the northern most point of the lake. My husband Danny trolled his lucky pink Tasmanian devil and I trolled a small sling blade with a worm behind it. I had a few hits but I didnt put a stinger hook on the worm so it just kept getting ripped off. My husband got a hit shortly after we started trolling and brought in our first brown. A beautiful almost chrome german brown around 12in. released. Not minutes after he hits another brown on his tasmanian devil, a more colored up brown trout about the same size. I am not having much luck so I switch up to trolling a little needle fish. Danny starts to reel in his tasnamanian devil so he can cast it out on the other side of the boat when he gets a good line peeling hit. A good fight with many runs he brings up next to the boat a beautiful brown trout that must have been the king of the lake. We did not weight him or measure him as we wanted to release him pretty fast, but Id assume he was around 20in. We trolled around the upper part of the lake for another hour or so, Danny would continue to catch a few more german browns all around the 12 in range. I would continue to not catch anything. So we decided to still fish the old fashioned way with a worm under a bobber. around some underwater stumps. I know there are some slab crappie in there and some nice pumpkin seeds. I immediately get hits and continue to miss them. Finally I hook up and get it in and its a beautiful brown trout. It starts to rain and get a little windy so we fish a little longer and I get one more brown trout. The lake is beautiful and crystal clear, so I think its best to use less flashy lures. There was hardly any weeds in the lake, and I know towards the height of summer the weeds start to take over the lake. So now is a great time to fish. We stayed in the upper part of the lake, but I do know the lower part of the lake has more panfish. All trout were released, and every trout had different coloring and spotting. Some trout were almost chrome, some were bright yellow and super spotted, some had almost no spots. There were a few families still fishing from the bank and a couple of other boats on the lake. A couple people leaving with 5 trout each. The trout are released as fry so I am surprised the trout fishery is able to sustain so much fishing and harvesting, especially the size of the trout we were catching.

These fish were striking my lure very often. Lots of hook ups and LDRs. The fish I caught were 11-14". Had the lake to myself early on and only one other fisherman later in the morning. If you want a shot at some little browns in a remote like setting, this is a good spot to go. It was very windy!

Our fly fishing guy, Brian Whitney invited me to go give Antilon a shot since the ice was finally off of it. We drug wooly buggers, cone head muddlers and Carey (a plug for Mike) Specials around on full sink lines. It wasn't red hot as we were eliminating water and only fished a couple of hours, but they were nice quality Browns caught on flies. I think the weed edges are best right now. A pretty fast retrieve seemed to be the ticket.

I got a call from Andy a.k.a AFK from wa lakes to go up to Chelan county's Antilon Lake to fish for crappie yesterday. After reading Jordan's Antilon posting ,I was chomping at the bit to pursue some nice crappie and maybe a brown trout or too. After getting up at 3 a.m. I met up with Andy and we drove up to the Lake and had it all to oursleves. Beautiful scenery greeted us, but from the get go the fish catching was slow. Andy nailed some nice brown trout while trying for crappie on a hand tied Blakemore Road Runner spinner jig with a chatruse marbou tail. We tied up at the concrete tube on the south end of the Lake and we both began catching some bull sunfish, all of of which were over 8" ( see the "sunny"photo below). The crappie eluded us until I got one on jighead and crawler. It seemed that everytime we switched jig colors, ( Smoke jig skirts and grubs worked best) we would catch a decent sized crappie. All told we caught around 20 fish or so, 6 keeper crappie, huge sun fish and some fat (12 to 14") brown trout. We got blown off the lake, but had a hella good time. Thanks again Andy for your generosity. (Andy rated it a 3.5 day. Lol.) Hooking up for crappie trips with wa Lakes members has been a lot of fun. Let me know if any of you want to try it sometime.

My dad and I fished Antilon yesterday. The weather was spectacular, a little breeze and cloud cover. We fished for about 5 hours and brought home 8 brown trout, 3 of which were in the 14 inch range the others being about 12 inches. We lost two fish at the boat and had numerous strikes. We caught the first 6 fish on pop gear/wedding ring, then the last 2 were caught on pop gear/ chartreuse rooster tail combo. It was a great day to be on the water and most of the time we were the only boat on the lake. Brown trout dinner tonite!

after a pretty dang good day at Roses Lake the wind kicked up and blew us off the lake so we headed up to Lower Antilon aka Long Jim Reservoir. We ended up catching 27 Brown Trout between 3 of us we only kept a few that were 14"-16". Almost every fish was over 11" and they were all extremely fat and healthy fish! We also ended up catching 10 Crappie that were over 10" but only kept 4 that didn't have fat belly's with eggs in them. Fun day and looking forward to going back soon!

Caught a bunch of Brown Trout. Could not get anything else to hit though! Which was very frustrating!
