Big trout derby happening later this month at Moses Lake

Here is the fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

April is a huge month for anglers in Central Washington.

Many lakes have opened for trout fishing in the Columbia Basin, and the big general trout season opener happens at the end of the month.

There’s a really big day planned for fishing families on Saturday, April 16th at Connelly Park in Moses Lake. It’s the Third Annual free Kids Trout Derby held by the Moses Lake Irrigation and Rehabilitation District and sponsored by Pepsi. Families are invited to come to Connelly Park where they will enjoy a variety of activities that include getting to catch a couple of trout from the launch bay in the park.

They should bring their own fishing tackle, and there will be prizes awarded for the biggest fish from three fishing periods. There will be hot dogs and soft drinks available for free. Families must pre-register for the event at locations in Moses Lake and Ephrata. For details visit Dave Graybill’s Web site.
