Hello All!

Got a question if I may......where would you fish this weekend. My fishin buddy has fallen off the planet recently as his wife came back. Normally we float various rivers in our pontoons. As for this weekend, I have no partner and no second vehicle to shuttle Pontoons to and from Put-ins and Take-outs. Sooo, I guess I will attack the still water with the 5wt. What lakes are recommended on the west side (I am near Tacoma) without the drive to the east side? I just got a band new pontoon and a screamin deal at that so I gotta get it out on the water with or without my fishin bud. What are your recommendations?? Its about time that I take a break from steelheading and try for some regular old trout - maybe that will re-assure myself that I am still a competant flyfisherman. I am up to 22 trips with one bump from a steelhead. Its time to remember what a rod looks like with a bend in it. Thanks in advance for your input. J

Not sure of the west side, but...if you had to make the trek to the east side, we could hook up and get you into some good holding waters?? Im headin out again this weekend and the buzz is good on the steelies: three weeks and three steelies??? :thumb

You could always try Cady, outside of Belfair. I haven't fished it this early, but was was good in April. It is catch & release, FF only. There are some BIG fish in that lake, easy access.

I was thinking along the lines of Cady. I fished it a couple times in December and early Jan. I was looking on a map and wondering about the Silver Lake that south on HWY 7 off of 512? Anyone know anything about that lake??

Talk to me about Christmas Island - I dont have a map at the moment, used the map servers but couldnt find anything. I know absolutely nothing about it, or fishing the salt for that fact. I am very curious and may just give it a shot depending on what info I can dig up before tomorrow morning

have you tried the salt under the tacoma bridge? hit and miss, but have heard of sea runs and silvers. i also got a new pontoon boat and i am looking to float with someone.

Since no one else is letting go of any Westside lakes for you. You can try Deep Lake in King county between 1PM and 4PM so that its the warmest part of the day and the winter fish get alittle more active. I also have heard Some are doing ok in American Lake down South of Tacoma over the last few weeks.
