Okanogan lakes producing plenty of trout fishing action
Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
The weather is going to be stellar throughout the region this weekend, so pack the sunscreen if you plan to fish the lakes that are now open for trout fishing. Lakes in OkanoganCounty produced very good catches for anglers again and there are still lots of fish in these lakes.
Conconully Reservoir was at the top of list for catches on the opener, and in addition to great trout fishing the reservoir produced very good numbers of kokanee of 11 to 13 inches. ConconullyLake produced fewer rainbow of 9 to 11 inches, with some to 14 inches, and also offered kokanee of 11 to 13 inches. At PearryginLake most of the trout were 10 to 11 inches, with some carryovers to 17 inches.
A local derby was won by anglers that turned in a 5-pound rainbow and a 5-pound triploid at Pearrygin. Conditions were very windy at AltaLake, but anglers that stuck it out average close to three fish each, and they were averaging 11 to 12 inches, with carryovers up to 18 inches. I expect catch average to actually better this weekend, as conditions will allow anglers to fish longer and not have to put up with high winds.
