    So I’m really new to the game. I started fishing late in the spring with a friend of mine and now I’m starting to venture out on my own. I’m borrowing his single man inflatable pontoon boat so I can go just about anywhere. Just looking for recommendations for lakes to hit up. I live in Auburn...

    Folks, just a heads up... I neglected to put my Discover Pass in my window at Amber recently and was slapped with a $100 ticket. I asked for a hearing hoping to get off the hook... and was sent a letter that: "... upon further investigation, the area where the associated vehicle was parked is...

    Can anyone advise on what the water temps are running and if any prevalent chironomid hatches have been noted? Its been a few years since I've been to Pass and hoping to take advantage of this good weather this week to make a run up. Thanks, Yellowlab

    I already posted this in Stillwater forum before realized this one existed. I'm wanting to hike up to the lakes past Evan's this summer. I tried a few years ago and didn't make it due to slow pace and running into a huge rock wall. Was hoping someone who has hiked into these lakes can offer some...

    I hear a lot of people bring float tubes to manashtash lake. Can you fish from the bank? And any tips on flies?

    Some of you may have heard about it... It's outside of Snoqualmie. Please chime in on your experience there if you've hit it for bass. Thanks.
  7. Lakes
    My favorite lake was closed due to road work today, and I wanted to avoid the crowds at Pass Lake. So I pulled off at Campbell on a whim (never fished it before). Tons of risers at the boat launch and midges flying all around. But after 5 hours, not a bite. Wholly buggers, yellow semi seal...

    Hey everyone! First post here. A friend told me about this Forum. My name is Stace and I'm a 25 year employee of WDFW (I got a kick out of your verification code lol) in the Inland Fish Program. That means I cover all Inland fish - trout/warmwater/carp. I cover all six counties in SW...

    For anyone thinking about fishing Lake Lenore: The lake is in some sort of bloom and water clarity is (IMO) very poor for fishing. I'm guessing less than a foot visibility. I drove up to the north end of the lake this morning hoping that the "green" color (sort of light olive with hint of...

    Looking for fishing information - reports, recent visits and trips, and overall how are these lakes to fish. My Dad, brother, and family friend who've been fishing together for years are looking for a new spot to camp for the weekend and fish. I went to Heart, Canal, and Windmill lake over the...

    I am a fan of fishing this lake, as it's local and I'm a sucker for some bass fishing. I have a 15' inflatable Saturn boat with a trolling motor, and am able to putt around within proximity to the launch ramp. I'm looking at buying a real boat this month, and it would be the first time I've...
  12. Lakes
    Popular east side lake, excellent fishing Sunday. Beautiful weather too. Water was clear, slightly green, pretty cold but I forgot to take a temperature. Fish sampled had mostly daphnia, some chironomids, worms, and occasional damsel nymph. I caught fish under the indicator on a chromie...

    I hear there’s Lahontans in it. Any experience?
  14. Lakes
    I've got two sisters. One lives on Sprague Lake (Spokane) the other on Foy's Lake (Kalispell). I have not been to either one, and info seems rather sparse. I plan to take my float tube with me on a road trip to visit them this Spring and was hoping to get some information from you folks here...

    I have a vacation planned for May to try smallmouth near West Richland on the Yak in May, but would like a backup plan if river looks like it will be blown out. has anyone fished for warm water fish in silver lake in may with a fly rod? If so any advice is appreciated. I do not need to know...

    Does anyone know if Pass is frozen at all? I will be picking up a couple float tubes Saturday in Anacortes, and am hoping to fish for a few hours. Any recent reports would be helpful too.

    Weather is looking good for Saturday, I guess it time to go try my luck with an indicator ! Earl

    Made it out to a lake today. These are the flies that did not catch fish- This is the fly that caught fish- Right after I took the above picture of the hot fly, on an almost Maui tropical Washington February day, the temperature dropped 10 degrees. Oh well, the beer was still good and the...
