Interest in trout fishing is really ramping up. Although the general lowland lake opener isn’t until the fourth Saturday of this month, anglers are already wetting their lines. I traveled to the Tri-Cities recently and saw the shores of several of the I-82 Ponds lined with anglers. These ponds receive generous plants of catchable trout in the early spring. Both Rotary Pond and Tims Pond are also loaded with rainbow trout. Closer to home here in Leavenworth, there are people fishing from the dock and out in boats on Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee. Near Lake Chelan, Roses Lake anglers always get an early start on the trout fishing season, as the lake is planted with 20,000 catchable rainbow most every year in the fall. In Douglas County, the lakes around the town of Rock Island are open year round and are loaded with rainbow. Burke and Quincy lakes, which opened on the first of March continue to provide good catches, with the occasional whopper that was planted in the lakes prior to the Trout Derby that is held in late March. I like to look at last year's planting reports to see what year-round lakes would be good in the spring.
