Here is the latest report from Dave Graybill outdoor writer in north central Washington:
Father’s Day will be here before you know it, and I hope you have made plans.
My brother Rick and I always sneak out in the morning with my Dad and often arrive late for the family gathering.
We have fished at Moses Lake for walleye, Rufus Woods for triploid rainbow, Lake Chelan for kokanee, and even perch at a couple of lakes in the Columbia Basin. We haven’t decided where to go this year, but it is always a lot of fun for the three of us.
One thing that is coming up the day before Father’s Day is the annual Family Fishing Derby at Fish Lake, put on by the Icicle Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
You’ll want to be there by 5:30 a.m. for their famous breakfast that includes sausage, eggs, pancakes and a drink. The event starts at 5:30 and runs until 1 p.m. and there will be all kinds of prizes of course.
The cost to enter is $10 for adults, $5 for kids age 15 and under and a family of four can sign up for just $20.00. So don’t forget, Saturday, June 18, be at the Cove Resort on Fish Lake for the annual Family Fishing Derby, sponsored by Trout Unlimited.
