I love fishing Banks Lake. Not only is it one of the most scenic places to fish in Washington, but it also has terrific fishing for a variety of species. If you haven’t tried Banks you may want to plan a trip on April 12 through the 14th. That’s when the annual Reel Recreation Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge fishing derby is scheduled. This is a very family friend derby with special emphasis on making sure the youngsters have a great time. On Friday, there’s a special “pond” set up and Pacific Seafoods loads it up with rainbow trout for the kids to catch. On Saturday participants head out to catch bass, walleye, whitefish and trout to be entered into the derby. Fishing continues on Sunday and concludes with a weigh in when winners for catches made on both Saturday and Sunday are awarded their prizes. The aim of the derby is to get families involved in fishing, and the derby is a fun way to do it. To learn more about the Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge, just Google Real Recreation and check out their website. You can even register for the event on the site. I hope to see you there!
