Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
The last weekend of the Seattle Boat Show was a busy one. As many as 15,000 people a day passed through the show. There were lots of folks from Central Washington there taking in the sights.
I was also able to see some of my West Side friends and business contacts. It was a great show but everyone from Bob Feil Boats and Motors is glad to be heading home.
Weather here continues to be mild and that is bad news for fans of ice fishing.
The ice layer on most area lakes is getting thin. The other impact of warm weather is that it puts a layer of water on top of the ice, which makes slogging to your favorite fishing spot a mess.
We have a very short ice fishing season this year. I would be sure to check ahead before loading up the rig and heading for your favorite lake. There is some good news for steelhead anglers.
It looks like they are going to open the Wenatchee River and possibly the Columbia River near Pateros earlier than I thought. There should be an announcement about these openings this week. Check the department’s web site for the news.
