Outdoor writer Dave Graybill has fishing plans for Father’s Day

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

It’s Fathers Day weekend and I hope you all have plans for some family fun with Dad.

One option to consider for spending some quality time with Dad is to enter the Annual East Wenatchee Rotary Club Pikeminnow Derby.  This is the 21st year for this popular derby, and those who have fished in it come back year after year.

It is not only fun, but there is over $10,000.00 in cash and prizes that will be handed out.  You can pick up a brochure with all the details and buy your tickets at Bob Feil Boats and Motors and Bi-Mart in East Wenatchee, and at Hooked on Toys in Wenatchee.

My daughter Whitney is coming over and she, my wife Eileen and I are all headed up to Banks Lake.  We all love to fish here for smallmouth bass, and it looks like the weather is going to be ideal.

When I am “with the girls”, we will find a nice beach and take a swim to cool off.  It makes for a very fun day.  The opening of summer-run salmon season is Monday, July 1st in the region, and anglers are watching the fish move up stream with the dam counts.  It’s going to be another great year.
