When I saw the amount of snow that we were going to get on Sunday in Leavenworth, I decided to check on the ice at Fish Lake on Saturday. The highway was slick with black ice on the way up Tumwater Canyon. When I arrived at about 8 a.m. I found a good crowd of anglers out on the ice and more unloading their gear to head out from the parking area. The group of anglers I visited with had a good catch of perch piling up on the ice. They were using Swedish Pimples, baited with perch eyes. I measured the ice and saw there was just three inches of solid ice and another three inches or so of the layers of ice and snow that had formed in the past few days. The folks I talked to had been to Curlew Lake the day before. They got a late start as road conditions delayed their arrival, and they just got a dozen perch while there. Another plan to fish Curlew for perch is in the works, though. I have heard that there are anglers are on the ice at Moses Lake, but don’t have a report on they are doing.
Anglers are having fun catching perch on Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee.
