    I don't think this is any big secret....but of st. edwards park you can hit big bows/cuthroats at times, go further east where the lilly pads are...you can hit perch and bass up the yin-yang and din-sum. You can even hit a coho ...yes I did :p Even i said WTF? Had the 6 weight and what a fight!!!! decent 6 pounder! released :) Lk. Washington is a gem...if you know what you are doing. :D ...PS...I don't :(

    Porter, St Edwards park, north of Holmes Point? You mean when you hike down to the shore?

    C'mon...you can hike down but unless you are the steeple cast champion you need to hit it from the oposite end! OK ..I'm done on this body of water.

    You can walk down from St. Edwards park to hit the water. There are a few spots you'll need to be careful of when down there as the water depth will drop pretty fast. You can actually wade pretty far out when down there. Far enough to cast out a good 40 feet. I was hitting bass last year pretty good with a inter sink line and some rabbit hair looking things.

    I splashed around the Lake Washington side of the Juanita Bridge. No Luck. I've never caught a thing in LK WA so far. Water temp was 66 degrees. The water is the slough wasn't a toilet bowl, but it was getting there.

    A fun Saturday fish. Caught three more just like it. Not a prize by any means but fish are fish on the way to work.

    Good job! Northern pikeminnows deserve a little more respect and attention from fly fishers.
