The knot tying area at the Columbia Basin Kids Fishing Derby was a busy spot during the event.
Buffalo Lake Karen and I
My wife's sister Karen Heim joined us at Buffalo Lake. Here she is with one of the carryover rainbow that she caught. Buffalo Lake is very good right now for rainbow from 12 to 16 inches, with carryovers to 20 inches and the occasional triploid of 5 pounds.
Buffalo Lake Whopper
My grin is almost as big as this triploid rainbow that I caught at Buffalo Lake. The fish hit an Apex lure trolled behind a small dodger. I was using one of my kokanee rods and it was quite a battle! We kept ten trout the first afternoon. They averaged 16 inches.

Banks Eric Smalllmouth
Eric Granstrom put the video camera down long enough to land this smallmouth bass at Banks Lake. He was casting a crank bait in the shallows of the Devils Punchbowl. Then we caught some rainbow for the triple!
Banks Me Smallmouth
We found a bunch of smallmouth bass in the Devils Punchbowl on Banks Lake. I got this dandy on a Bomber plug in the crawfish pattern. I thought the smallmouth fishing was going to be tough. Not!
Banks Keith Walleye
Keith Jensen started our day by landing this walleye right across the bay from Coulee Playland, which will be the headquarters for the Triple Fish Challenge. We got three keepers and lots of shorts that day.
Banks Keith Smallmouth
We were after three species on Banks Lake while shooting a new TV Show with Keith Jensen of Big Wally's Guide Service. Keith put us on bass, walleye and trout. We're ready for the Triple Fish Challenge!
