I am playing heartgold. Will the ability static work while fishing to catch a Chinchou easier?

As stated on Bulbapedia, leading with a Pokemon using Static will force an Electric-type Pokemon to appear in wild encounters 50% of the time.

Probably since there's nothing on any websites saying it won't work for fishing
Yes, the ability Static can work on Chinchou.
I think that the asker is asking about whether Static will cause Chinchou to be encountered more often, as Static causes Electric type Pokemon to be encountered when a Pokemon with it is at the front of the party.
