I hiked up to Eight Mile lake today and fished for a little while. There is minimal snow at the lake, at least on the side where the trail is. I saw several rises while I was there, not a lot, but enough to think that there is a fair number of fish there. After a short while a hooked and landed a very nice rainbow- about 12 inches. I really wanted to catch a lake trout that I have heard for years are in the lake, but with a long drive back to Yakima and pouring rain, I decided to head out. Does anyone know if Lake trout are still there, and if so what's the best way to catch them?
