Make plans for Eastern Washington trout lakes opener on March 1
Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
The next big event in our area is the Third Annual Trout Derby at Burke Lake on Saturday, March 2nd. Everyone will be trying to catch one of tagged trout worth up to $2,000.00! One lucky angler did catch the $2,000.00 fish last year, and you can be he’ll be there.
Fishing will be good, that’s for sure. In addition to the money fish being placed in Burke Lake, the Quincy Valley Tourism Association will be putting over 100 trout of 14 to 18 inches in the lake, and 35 trout that will weigh between 6 and 7 pounds.
There is a huge list of prizes to be given out for biggest fish in adult and youth categories. You can still register on-line by going to the derby web site. Just click on the “Something is Fishy in Quincy” logo on the Home Page of my web site.
