Yeah I think my second creepiest experience was on that lake as well when we high centered on a submerged log.  Lots of "rock the boat, but don't rock the boat too much" to get out of that pickle.

There's a stump near the south end with a memorial plaque remembering two men who drowned several years ago. Reminds everyone to "wear your lifejacket". It is from this incident I believe:

The lake has seen it's share of tragedies for sure. This one among others:

Only fished it once several years ago as a guest of a local. Real nice gentlemen, really cool lake. Caught them on green and red wedding ring tipped with a worm, trolling nice and slow. I really liked seeing all the stumps in the lake. Never seen that many stumps before, just gotta be careful is all.

Itís a Great Lake to fish I wish there was more warning about what boats should be on there. Now that there is a public launch I have see more and more boats that shouldnít be on there or boats that are going way to fast

I have helped look for bodies in that lake. Night with big lights works the best. All the logs makes it creepy for sure. Divers did not like it because of all the lost lures.

Did they ever find those two guys?  Lake Wenatchee is still holding some bodies that I dove for when I was on the Chelan County Dive Team in the late 80s and early 90ís.

Ah yes, I grew up fishing Kapowsin for trout, bass and everything in between! I remember my Dad having me sit on the bow of our boat looking for stumps while he was cruising at 25 mph through the log jungle...All I had time to yell was "DAA", before we were airborne, lol Luckily us and the boat were fine, but we never did that again :)
