Failor Lake kids trout fishing derby this Saturday
A fun and exciting kids fishing event will take place at Failor Lake in Grays Harbor from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 20.
The kids-only (for youth under age 14) fishing derby is hosted by the Grays Harbor Poggie Fishing Club, and access to the lake is off Highway 101. The gate to the lake will be open at 7 a.m. and the gates will then be locked until the lake reopens for opening day on April 27.
Curt Holt, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist says the lake will get a plant of 4,700 catchable-sized trout (9 to 10 inches) from the Humptulips Hatchery; 180 triploid trout (14 to 15 inches or 1 1/4 pound apiece) from Trout Lodge; 200 jumbo-sized trout (averaging 4 pounds apiece) from Humptulips Hatchery; and 500 quality-sized trout (averaging 6 to 6 pounds apiece) from Satsop Springs Hatchery.
