Anglers that plan to fish the lakes that opened March 1st in the Quincy Wildlife Area and Martha Lake and the Caliche lakes near George, will be interested learn the forecast provided by the Department of Fish and Wildlife. Burke Lake will be the first choice. Not only was the lake planted with 18,000 catchables last spring and fall, there will be some tagged trout in there worth huge money in the Quincy Valley Tourism Trout Derby. These folks also are putting in some really big triploid rainbow. I want to remind anglers that the Derby may be expanded to include Quincy Lake, which by the way was planted with 15,500 catchables last spring and fall and received very little pressure. Martha Lake will also be a good choice as the Department planted the lake with 7,500 catchables in early winter, and fish should be good size. The Caliche lakes, however were not planted, due to ice cover, and might only get 3,000 small catchables prior to the weekend. For fans of fishing Dusty Lake, it should be good. The main lake is ice-free and although the trout may be lethargic due to cold water, there are good numbers of large trout here.
