Trolling flies, caught 3 brown trout. One was good size, the other 2 were small. Had 3 other bites I could not get back to boat. Non stop fishing action for the 2 hours fishing. Hope to get back soon and spend more time.

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!

My dad and I decided to try Antilon, because it generally makes for good fishing. We trolled for 4 hours ,caught 1 brown and had a few bites. The water temp must still be a bit cold. We'll go back in a couple weeks and hopefully have better success.

My fiancee pam and I took off for the weekend up to Chelan County's Antilion Lake ffor some pre spawn Crappie fishing. It was definately one of my most momorable and successful trips ever! We arrived friday night, May 8th set up camp and launched the Jon boat. Where we concentrated our efforts, there were hundreds of decent Crappie suspended in the gin clear water, about 2 feet down. From 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., only Pam landed a nice 13" Brown trout and one crappie.... I hadn't caught a single fish. That was untill the sun weht down. In a span of a half hour, while I was untangling "her" rat's nest reel, she caughr and landed 20 crappie on consequtive casts! ( (on my pole no less!) we eneded up with 27 fish, with around a dozen Crappie kept. The next Morning at around 9:30 a.m. we took the boat up to the far south end. Fish activity was strangely absent. I put on an orange and smoke power Nymph, left in my boat by my pal bluefin Loui, but caught only 3 fish off of the Concete tube, (all on that Nymph.) It was more of the same later, where it seemed that the only thing the crappie wanted was that Nymoh. I gave Pam my ultralite and let her catch a few on it too. As the day progressed, we sight fished slightly deeper water at 10' to 12 feet. Active, catchable crappie, were holding at the base of isolated weeds and in the shadows of scattered chunk rocks and boulders. The suspended crappie we saw were universally negative, and would not bite. I alternated fishing a red/ silver speckle/ glitter skirt on a 1/48th oz specialty jighead. On one cattail point, just as a rain squall approached, we caught nearly 30 crappie and the majority of the bigger 9 to 10 inch fish bit during the rain that followed. (A slow drop and twitch of the jig was what they wanted.) So I switched to a 2 1/2 inch Smelt Berkley gulp minnow on that same jighead and nearly all the Crappie caught on it were bigger fish. It also accounted for 3 German browns as well. In short, we caught 89 fish by my count, including browns, sunfish ( all released) and crappie. We filleted a couple dozen fish, and we shared a few fillets with an elderly friend of mine.(Umm...Not you bluefin Loui... lol... An intresting note: This Lake can be very tough to fish...Attention to detail and bait presentation + color selection made the all difference for Pam and I.. All the other fishermen on this lake that we talked too only averaged 2 to 3 fish per person. Site Member Larry Longley and his 3 person boat party arrived in the afternoon. I shared some tips with him and they caught about a dozen fish in a couple of hours. This is a very, very healthy lake. Judging by the numbers of fish that we saw suspended, including the negative biters, thier overall size and quality, and combine that with selective harvest practices, Antilion Lake should remain an awesome Crappie fishing destination for seasons to come!
