Does anyone know a place within 100 miles, that an elderly person who can't hike way into the wilderness can fly fish for brook trout ? Pleas ? While I am still able to fish..?
That would not be appropriate for Leech Lake.Does it take larger type boats ? We have a 21 foot family boat, inboard , wish we did have a smaller one.
Thanks Jerry, we don't have a small boat.. maybe we should consider getting one. . We generally like to fly fish while we are walking , thatbis what we have been used to doing in Wyoming. Thank you .Leech Lake. Fly only, no motors, Forest Service boat launch. Some kind of boat is necessary, it is not fishable from shore.
Thank you Matt, we would probably be happiest with a river, that is what we are used to. Preferably with tent camping .That would not be appropriate for Leech Lake.
WDFW has an online tool where you can search out lakes overpopulated with brook trout. I don’t have the link handy but a quick google search should yield the result I’m thinking of, which will help you. But you still might need a boat; otherwise, practice your roll cast.
Not in WA that I know of. I'm sure there are some some small streams that have them, but we're talking really tiny water and really tiny fish. The WDFW has made an effort to get rid of them since they can interbreed with native Bulls. (By "effort" I mean generally removed all harvest restrictions.)Oh.. I hope it does somewhere
What you seek does not exist, to my knowledge.
what you want are the outlet streams of sub-alpine brookie lakes that you can drive to. i bet there are some on that list matt suggested.Thank you Matt, we would probably be happiest with a river, that is what we are used to. Preferably with tent camping .
