Monday, March 4, 2024
By Dave Graybill
Sunny but chilly and windy weather greeted anglers for the opening of the lakes in the Quincy Wildlife Area on March 1st. I visited several lakes to see how anglers were doing and what size trout they were catching. Many of these lakes are planted with both catchable size trout and fry each year, and I saw people with this year’s yearling fish and some carryovers from last season. I ran into Joe Zellinski, who was doing creel checks for the WDFW. He participated in a test fishery two weeks ago and found many of the trout to be 13 and 14 inches and one was a 19-incher that probably weighed 3 pounds. Almost all the anglers I visited with had trout on their stringers at both Burke and Quincy lakes. The same was true at Martha Lake and Caliche. Those who had to wait for the weekend to make their trip to these lakes should have had pretty good fishing. It looked to me to be one of the best opening days in have seen in a few years. I wanted people to know that the video I did on bank fishing at Keller Ferry is now posted on my YouTube channel.
