I see below that someone was going to Grimes L. for the weekend. I don't see a report here!! haha Just kidding but was curious how you did. I'm heading over on the weekend of the 23rd. Probably hit Fish L. too, they have monsters in there also! I see some interest on Spada L., I was up there last weekend but couldn't fish because all I had was my cat-a-raft, which you can't use there. Dumb rule! Where's the harm? Since then I went and bought an Old Town canoe which I plan on taking up this week after work or this weekend, wheather permitting that is. When we were there last weekend there wasn't another sole on it and the water looked so inviting. My game plan is to consintrate on the 2 arms at the east end and the inlet rivers. I'll post my results. Jim

Lots of info, thanks. Yeah, I know all about wind, all those eastside lakes can have that problem to some extent. I just like to try places I haven't been before. I have fished Jameson so it can't be to much different. I have a pontoon boat so I shouldn't have to call 911. Snakes, hmmmm I hate snakes but I've had to fish around them since I was a young boy fishing with my dad on the Klickitat R. and hiking in the back side otf the Naches in summer. I must admitt the hi-ways have taken their toll on them over the years. My dad actually saw one on the river (Klickitat) last week. He's 80 years old and still goes down there fishing. Oh and by the way he caught 2 steelhead. Know one knows that river like he does. Anyway I'll still probably try Grimes early on the 23rd. There are a couple streams in that area I want to try also. I am surprized they caught any big fish out of Lenice though, it was killed off just under 2 years ago. I have been trying to avoid the crowds, I like a good challenge.
L8r, Jim
And thanks again

I got some of those :) !!! I plan on going early Saturday morning and be off by 10-11 before the stronger winds usually pickup. Then Sunday morning at Fish L. on the way home for awhile. What a terrible way to spend a weekend! haha L8r's, Jim

I didn't go yet, this coming Saturday the 23rd. Sounds like my timing will be good. If its not to windy I might try my new float tube my kids got me for father's day :). Its a WWGriggs V-6000. Otherwise I'll use my pontoon boat (cat-a-raft) as you can always row in the wind and troll if you have to. Maybe we'll run into each other this weekend? Sounds like you go there a lot. Have to watch for those dang snakes too! Yeow! :( Later, Jim

My wife doesn't fly fish. She will go out salmon or halibut fishing but she doesn't consider herself a fisherwoman. She'll be staying in the motorhome visiting with her mom from Spokane who's meeting her in Cashmer today. I'm going over on Friday. I'm used to ruffing it when fishing and can pretty much go all day too but 13 hours is a really long.........day! I've stayed out on my big boat that long quite often. Especially when hali/salmon fishing and its 20 miles off-shore. Like I said though I'll just be there in the morning as I want to stop/check out a couple places while I'm over there. Always looking for new spots to try. My new trick for this year is to try fly fishing for salmon/steelhead down off the Columbia where I've gone since I was 10 years old. But have always used bait to catch'm. I have some fly's and a 7/8 rod setup ready to go. Story to be continued for sure. What would be the best end to the story would be to catch one with my dad there! He 81 and still he out fishes me most of the time!
Talk to ya L8r, Jim
