If you are looking for a good fishing adventure for family and friends by boat, you may want to consider a couple of options. One is to run up to Seatons Grove and fish near the upper net pens for triploid rainbow trout on Rufus Woods Reservoir. Beginning in March of this year the Colville Tribe began releasing triploids into Rufus Woods. By late May they had released a total of nearly 30,000 triploids. The earliest releases had fish averaging 1.5 pounds and the latest release had fish averaging 2.75 pounds. These fish grow fast in Rufus Woods. Anglers can expect to catch fish weighing from 3 to 6 pounds near the net pens, and it should be easy fishing. The first time I tried it we pulled plugs, but my friends now just fish beside the pens with Power Bait. The limit is only two, but these fish are worth the trip. They smoke up like nothing else. They are fabulous. When you have your limit of triploids, run south and put the boat in at Banks Lake and go smallmouth bass fishing. You may not catch anything too big, but you will be busy. Small lizards or grubs cast to the shore will do the trick.
