I've got free time to fish on June 7 (Friday)and the morning of June 8 and plan to fish a lake(s) in Eastern Washington. Has anyone been to Lenice, Nunnally or Grimes in the last few days that can give a report? Also how much further is it to drive to Grimes from Seattle than Lenice.

Thanks

Hi,

I fished Lenice with a friend on Saturday, I caught 4 and my friend caught 8 fish. Mostly caught on griffiths gnats fishing in the shallows close up to the reeds near the islands. We also caught a couple trolling in the deeper section near the islands with callibaetis nymphs. Morning and early afternoon seemed to be the most productive time with alot of fish in the shallows feeding on midge and trico's.

Good Luck

I just got back from Grimes. In my opinion it was well worth the trip. I landed 7, had a couple of break offs, and missed several other strikes. This may not sound real productive, but all of this was done while fishing in a hurricane. We started fishing around 6am and fought wind and fish till around 2pm. The last 2 hours all we could do was cast from shore to cruisers in the shallows. The fish were all hogs, 23-24 inches, upwards to 5 lbs. They all fought great. We worked the east shore just as you get out of the shallow neck where you launch your boat. A beadheaded Chartreuse Cary Special, size 8-10 and a size 14 Copper John worked well for me and my buddy took several fish on a Prince Nymph. If you have a shot at Grimes, go for it. It's a little further to drive but can worth the extra miles. Just pray for no wind!!!!!!!!!! :THUMBSUP
