Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
Trout anglers can expect continued good fishing at the lakes in the Quincy Wildlife Area.
There were big crowds on Burke, Quincy, Martha and Caliche last weekend, but all of these lakes have plenty of fish in them and will produce great catches for weeks to come. Fishing should be even better for the larger trout that the Quincy Valley Tourism Association put in Burke Lake for the derby.
They were planted just the day prior to the derby and weren’t really in a biting mood. I am getting reports of some very large rainbow being caught on Potholes Reservoir and Banks Lake.
Spring fishing for trout well over 20 inches can be excellent on these large impoundments and this year seems particularly good. I would encourage anglers to give Banks Lake a try for trout, as the first Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge derby is less than a month away now.
There will be prize money awarded for the biggest rainbow, walleye and smallmouth bass at the derby, and this would be a good time to find out where the best trout fishing is on Banks. Go to my web site and click on the Pepsi logo to get the link to the derby site for info.
