    Hmmm... pluses and minuses to both...

    Lake Wenatchee sockeye run about 2-3 pounds each... Baker Lake sockeye run 4-10 pounds each.

    Baker is a shorter run from Renton, but the bite is pretty early, so you need to camp or leave at an ungodly hour for kids... We left Kirkland at 5am and had lines in just before 8am... too late for good action, which is from 5-8-ish. It was tough fishing after that with a bite every 2-3 hours.

    Lake Wenatchee is a longer run, but from what I have heard, the fish are more cooperative and the bite lasts longer into the day.

    There are reports on both fisheries in the Fresh Water section if you can ignore the ranting on sharing etc and read for techniques.

    PM me if you would like more info on how I fish Baker.
