There is a lot going on fishing wise in the region. Salmon fishing is going great guns in the Brewster Pool and at Chelan Falls. Anglers are chasing walleye on Potholes and Banks Lake, and the bass fishing is terrific on Moses Lake. I hope to get in a trip to Billy Clapp for kokanee and walleye soon. I was looking at what I was doing last year at this time and came across some photos from Rufus Woods Reservoir. My friends and I started fishing up there in early July and we didn’t stop. One day James Lebow took my niece Ellie and me to fish below the upper net pens for triploid rainbow and walleye. We would troll bottom bouncers and spinners baited with nightcrawlers downstream and catch both species. On this particular day we landed four nice walleye and our limits of triploids. We were running down from Seaton Grove at that time. This year I have my access permit for the Colville Reservation and can launch at the new ramp right at the middle pens. The fish should be running 3 to 4 pounds and better right now, and they will be much bigger this fall and winter.
My niece Ellie Coen shows off a triploid rainbow and a walleye she caught fishing with me and James Lebow this time last season o Rufus Woods.
