Look for Eastern Washington walleye action to come alive in the months ahead

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

Anglers are getting the itch to catch some walleye and they are getting some relief by fishing near Two Rivers on Lake Roosevelt, and at the upper end of Rufus Woods Reservoir.

The points outside of the Spokane Arm is where the walleye anglers are concentrating their efforts and there has been some rumors of exceptionally large fish being taken. Fairly good action is being had by local anglers that know where to look for walleye in the upper reaches of Rufus Woods.

Typically the walleye fishing does take off in the area this time of year, and the mild weather has them feeding earlier than usual. Another area on the Columbia River that walleye hunters can be seen in the early spring is just above the Hydro Park boat launch near East Wenatchee.

Water temperatures on Banks Lake are warm enough to get walleye feeding on this impoundment, too, but until the ice clears off finding fish could be difficult.

Most of the walleye abandoned the north basin as the water dropped last year and haven’t moved back into as yet.

I will be checking on the perch action at the I-90 Bridge on Moses Lake and will keep you posted.
