Does anyone know if the Remlinger family still owns King lake above Duval?
I doubt anymore, from what I heard they stopped stocking it many years ago and local poachers killed off what was left. But back in the day, yes I pull out more 5 pounders than I could remember. Just had to be able to imitate a pellet feeding lol I used to help with trips when it was a pay to play lake.HOGS!
Ya I did, but to be honest most of us packed when we would go up to check on the lake because of the methheads and the locals who thought the lake being private was bullshit and that they had as much right to fish as anyone. When asked to leave the would tell us to f^%k off. The only way I found to get them to leave, with their stringer of 10+ fish, was to point my camera at them. They would get up and out in hurry as soon as we did that lol Did you work out of swedes? I heard another shop was going to work the lake 3 or 4 years after we had. Ya, it didn't take any skill to catch a huge trout on that lake, it made for a lot of over the moon clients. It is a shame if it is just sitting there..... A lot of amazing things they could of done up there. Other problem was the 4 wheelers, it didn't matter what we did to secure the gate, they were determined, finally gave up trying when they would bring the welding torch and just cut the gates lock box open.the shop had access to the lake ...and we beat it up! you could change a fly each cast and catch a fish ...pretty stupid. u ever meet the armed guard up there?
To get the biggest fish in the lake I would take a pellet fly and do a ton of false casts slapping the surface of the water imitating a lot of pellets hitting the surface right along the floating dock out in the middle of the lake and BAM!!! Every timeI was up there before it was a private fishing lake., I also made it up there when it was stocked with big fish. A pellet fly would work. Shit, that was a long time ago.
Except, annoyingly, the imap data stops at the county line. So you have to use scopi for Snohomish county, which is an inferior--though adequate--site.If you go to the King County GIS site (Google "King County IMAP") you can look up the property and it will tell you who owns it.
