Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
There is a lot of good news for fans of fishing at Jameson Lake. The lake suffered from algae blooms for a couple of years and fishing was disappointing.
This is one of the region’s long-time favorites, and I have met families here that have been coming to Jameson for decades.
I have seen four generations of fishing families on their annual opening weekend trip. The lake is in great shape now and not only has survival of fingerlings been very good, plants of bigger fish have been stepped up.
Last fall there were 10,000 12-inch catchables placed in the lake, and they should be a solid 14 inches for the opener at the end of April. An additional 3,000 large catchables and 600 “jumbo” triploids will be in the lake just prior to the opener. There is plenty of good feed in Jameson again and fish are very fat and healthy.
I am very happy to learn that Jameson Lake is back as one of the better trout lakes in the region. It is served by two resorts and has a large public camping area, so it accommodates very large numbers of anglers.
