I am going to try to get up to Rufus Woods as soon as possible. The Colville Tribe released about 2,000 triploids weighing an average of 4.7 pounds each, and I want to get some of these. Earlier this summer I fished just above the upper most net pens and caught fish this size then. We were using crank baits, like Rapalas and Flicker Shads, and got three limits. Anglers fishing bait are doing great by anchoring between the pens and the shore and using Power Bait or other floating baits fished off the bottom. There is a ton of fish here and I don’t think there is anything better than smoked triploids. I also want to mention that many of our region’s lakes will close at the end of October. A bunch of lakes were changed to year-round fishing through the regulation simplification process that the public wanted, but there are also lakes that traditionally opened in late April and closed at the end of October and their seasons remain the same. Be sure to check on your favorite lake before you head out to fish it. There are still Statewide Derby tagged trout in many of these lakes, too.
