I recently traveled home to Leavenworth from Coulee Dam. I stopped to see if the docks were in at Northrup and found one dock in place. I have heard some people taking about good walleye fishing and that the bass were beginning to bite. I continued down Highway 17 and visited with some fly anglers who were coming off Lake Lenore. This lake has special rules that make it popular with fly fishers. Getting to Lake Lenore and other spots via Highway 17, anglers should be aware of the construction delays. During the first phase of the project, known as slope scaling, the public should expect regular closures along SR 17, from Monday through Friday every hour at the top of the hour for 45 minutes. These closures start from 8:15 a.m. and run until 5 p.m. State Route 17 will reopen every hour on the first 15 minutes of the hour to clear traffic, before closing again. Crews will install portable messaging signs on site to inform travelers about future closures. During the remainder of the project, the public will encounter single-lane closures throughout. These closures seek to limit the wait time for drivers to 20 minutes or less.
