Burke Lake was the busiest on the first weekend of the opening of several lakes in the Quincy area, due to the tagged trout derby, but Quincy Lake also got its share of anglers. Fishing at Quincy wasn’t quite as good as the action at Burke. The fact that 120 rainbow of 15 to 18 inches were added to Burke, along with 30 fish weighing from 5 to 7 pounds for the derby may have been a factor. Fishing at Martha Lake, just east of George, was excellent again this year. Limits were easy to come by on the opener and even anglers that arrived early on the weekend did well. There were some larger than usual trout taken at Martha again this year, too. It always seems to have a good number of carryover rainbow. Hit this one early before the trout are all taken from this shallow and narrow lake. Caliche Lake, which is west of the town of George, produced good catches of rainbow, too. It was rehabbed this fall and the plants were 12 to 13 inches by the March 1st opener. I’ll have word on the fishing was at the popular quality lakes near Beverly and at Lake Lenore soon.
