As many of you know, Patterson Lake near Winthrop, is one of the most popular winter lakes in our region. Yellow perch are the main attraction here, but the lake also produces some very nice rainbow and kokanee through the ice in the winter. I wanted everyone to know that there is a special event planned at Patterson later this month. On Saturday January 26th the first “Patterson Lake Perch Pull” will be held. Organizers will be handing out cash prizes of the same amount for both adult and youth categories. One hundred dollars will be paid for the biggest perch, $75 for the most perch, $50 for the heaviest total perch and $50 for the largest other game fish. Registration will begin at 5:30 a.m. and the weigh in will be a 5 p.m. The entry fee is $25 for adults and $10 for youth: those under the age of 15. There is a dinner planned and the entry fee covers that cost. This is a great excuse for giving Patterson Lake a try. I have fished here many times and have always caught perch and rainbow. To learn more about the event you can contact Vern Herrst at 509-996-3210.
