Probably do-able. It used to be a windsurfing draw. Likely requires some cross-Cascade gradients a la Portland-The Dalles. Look at the pressures for Toledo to Yakima.

I hang glide there often. In 12 years I've only seen one kite on the lake. It can definitely work, but it's not terribly reliable. Light-wind/big kite site for sure. It's on my list to fly my hang glider and kite there in one day.
