I have been on the road a lot lately. I traveled to Puyallup for the Washington Sportsmen’s Show and then onto Seattle for the big Boat Show. These were great to attend. I met a lot of great people, saw some amazing products, and even shot some video for the new Outdoor Insider TV Show. You’ll get to see a couple of the presentations that you missed if you didn’t get to the Sportsmen’s Show. There is a very full schedule of seminars and presentations at both the Sportsmen’s Show and the Seattle Boat Show and they are major draw to these events. When I got home I contacted Keith Roe, and he filled me on some of the ice fishing activity that is going on in Okanogan County. One of the top producers for ice anglers is Patterson Lake, which is near Winthrop. The lake is providing anglers with good action on rainbow trout, perch and even kokanee. I have caught rainbow as large as 16 inches on Patterson, and the perch average about 10 inches. The kokanee, which are being caught incidentally to the rainbow and perch average about 10 inches, too. He suggests that you try the shallower south end of the lake for the perch, while the trout and kokanee are found in the middle.
