Two anglers recently nabbed for exceeding catch limit at Fish Lake near Wenatchee

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

Fish Lake near Lake Wenatchee has been a favorite of ice fishermen for decades, and the favorite catch has been perch.  To assure good fishing for perch through the ice and the balance of the season there was a 25-fish bag limit in place for several years.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement folks have been keeping anglers honest on Fish Lake and recently cited four men for trying to get away with taking more fish than allowed here.

Officer Klump was observing a group of four anglers and saw one of them stuff fish into a back pack and carry it to a vehicle parked at the Cove Resort.  He contacted the Cove and asked that they watch to see which vehicle the man was using.  He and another officer met the four anglers at their vehicle when they left the lake.

Two of the anglers had exceeded their limits.  They then asked the owner to open his trunk, and found two large bags containing an additional 68 perch.  The four had a total of 167 perch and were cited for exceeding their bad limit.  Fans of Fish are will happy to hear that Enforcement is on top of over-limit fishing at this popular lake.
