We are experiencing a lot more cold and snowy weather than we did at this time last year. This can put a damper on fishing when travel can be difficult. When the roads are passable there are some great places to go, and the very cold temperatures are good news for fans of ice fishing. A friend called the other day to tell me that some really big rainbow and brown trout can be caught at Waitts Lake near Spokane. This lake is famous for producing big fish through the ice every winter. I called Waitts Lake Resort and learned that the lake is not frozen over yet, but could be soon, with the continued chilly weather in the forecast. Although Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee, isn’t frozen over yet, there are lakes that should have a safe layer of ice on them by now. I spent a couple of days visiting some of the more popular lakes for ice fishing in the winter last year and did a video about them. These included Curlew, Bonaparte, Palmer and Patterson. You can watch this video by going to the Dave Graybill channel on YouTube. Another video that folks like is the one I did on Bank Fishing on Rufus Woods Reservoir. It can also be found on my channel on YouTube. Ice fishing throughout the region is just around the corner.
