Welcome to Lake Chelan Adventures!

The word 'Chelan' is derived from the Indian phrase "Tsillan", meaning deep waters. It is here at Lake Chelan and in the nearby Columbia River that Joe Heinlen acts as your personal professional fishing guide.

Lake Chelan provides a multi-species fishery for Smallmouth Bass, Westslope Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Burbot, Laketrout(Mackinaw), Kokanee, and Chinook Salmon.

Lake Chelan is 55 miles Long and is the third deepest fresh water lake in the United States at 1486 feet deep. Lake Chelan with its beautiful scenery and crystal clear waters set it apart from most fresh water Lakes in the World. It is considered by all to be the "Gem" Lake of North Central Washington.

There is nothing better than fishing in the cool, deep, and crystal clean waters of Lake Chelan. It will be an experience you will not soon forget. Come join Joe as he explores the depths of fishing on the unique waters of Lake Chelan with Lake Chelan Adventures!
