My plan for Tuesday was just another in a series of not-so-great choices I have made about where to go fishing recently. If your phone rings and indicates that I am calling, you may want it to let it go unanswered. My latest bright idea was to go to Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee. I had stopped by there the other day and spoke with Scott West at the Cove Resort. He told me that although he didn’t put any big triploids in the lake this year, the year before he put a bunch in that averaged 12 pounds. Here’s how I planned to approach the fishing on Tuesday. I would run two downriggers with some plugs for the really big fish and run two fly rods out the back for the rainbow. My brother in law Tom Verschueren would come along so we could run four rods. There was snow next to the road on the way up the Tumwater Canyon to the lake, and it was pouring down rain when we got there. I am sure he was looking daggers at my back while I rigged everything up, thinking “how did he talk me into this!” Well, once again my great plan failed. We didn’t get any big fish, and although we got lots of hits on our fly rods, only landed one 14-inch rainbow. Like I said, if I call—don’t answer!
