The weather was great on the morning of the opening of the lowland lake trout fishing season here in North Central Washington. I traveled to several of our area lakes to see how anglers were doing and shooting a video as well. My first stop was at the public boat launch on Blue Lake, where I visited with a WDFW enforcement officer while anglers were coming off the water. The officer told me that participation was down significantly from previous opening days. There were large gaps in the line of RVs and campers along the highway, which is very unusual. However, the fishing on Blue Lake was excellent, with most anglers getting their limits of fat rainbows. I then drove up to Park Lake, and it was busy. There were lots of boats on the water, the docks and shore line were lined with anglers and there was a big crowd at the cleaning station. On my way to Deep Lake one of the State Park folks mentioned the fishing was excellent on this lake and that if you wanted a very quick limit you should try Perch Lake, which is often ignored by anglers. Fishing was also excellent at Jameson Lake.
