I got a question from a follower on my Facebook Page, asking for some fishing tips. He was going to be in Spokane over the weekend and wanted to try for triploid rainbow trout out of Porcupine Bay on Lake Roosevelt. I described my slip sinker method for fishing off the bank on Lake Roosevelt, and that I liked to use jarred shrimp and a chunk of marshmallow for bait. Well, I got a quick reply through my Facebook Page following the weekend. He and his brother arrived at their fishing spot at 7 and both had their five-fish limits by 9:30! He said the trout weighed between 2 and 3 pounds and I got a photo of their stringer. The jarred shrimp and marshmallow set up did the trick. I have enjoyed a similar experience casting this same bait from the shore below the swimming area at Spring Canyon, just outside of Grand Coulee. I also see a lot of anglers fishing from shore at Keller when we launch there to fish for kokanee and trout. Lake Roosevelt trout fishing is great and these triploids terrific eating. When you fillet a kokanee next to one of these trout it’s had to tell which is which.
