Head east to find good ice fishing near Leavenworth

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

Ice fishermen can add Roses Lake, near Manson at Lake Chelan to their list of lakes that have safe ice. According to Anton Jones, Darrell and Dads Family Guide Service, anglers are now fishing at Roses.

This lake can be very productive for smaller, planted rainbow in the winter, with some carryovers available. The lake is heavily planted with trout in the fall each year.

There are some nice perch in Roses Lake, too, and it may take some looking to find them.

Anglers had good action at Fish Lake over the long weekend, taking some perch to over 10 inches, and lots of 11- to 12-inch trout.

Beginning this week is the Washington State Sportsmen’s Show in Puyallup. This is the granddaddy of shows in Washington, so plan on having a full day to see everything there.

The same is true for the Seattle Boat Show that begins on January 25th and runs through February 3rd.

You can see over 1,000 boats on display at Century Link Field and even more moored on the water at Lake Union. I’ll be at the Boat Show with Bob Feil Boats and Motors, so come by and see me and my new Kingfisher boat.
