    Keep me in the loop. I'm close enough for a day trip.

    Patrick, if you really want to get your daughter into LOTS of stockers, and I do mean LOTS, come up and fish Beehive or Clear Lake above Wenatchee. Beehive is 13 acres and was stocked with over 18,750 trout! That's over 1400/acre. Little 5 acre Clear Lake got 1600/trout per acre. The put and take lakes here have to be about the most heavily stocked in the state. It's hard not to catch something! They fish well all summer as they switch to C&R July 1 when they get an additional stocking. Beehive sits below Mission at 4000' while Clear is on the Heights at 3000'+ and are pretty little lakes, albeit manmade. Both are surrounded by pines and make a great after work trip to escape the summer heat as it will be much cooler up there. Both get tigers and they come up in the shallows in the evening and aggressively attack everything.

    On Roses lake is there a specific area of the lake people fish? I wanna try my hand there at Chironomid fishing...unless Tigers like something else? I will be there Memorial Day weekend. Any tips would be appreciated!

    Fishin Roses this weekend as well. I grew up in Manson but was never too into fishing back then. I'll be in the Livingston with the old man and my little brother. I'll report back. Enjoy your memorial weekend everyone!

    Fishin was slow for us. Only went out today (Monday). Gorgeous day. Few blue gill on some olive buggers was good enough for us. The day was more about an inaugural trip for a rebuilt motor and fixed up trailer, plus a newbies first fish. Good time.
