Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
It’s December and I still don’t have enough snow to sneeze at here in Leavenworth.
It is getting very cold, though, and I have to plan my fishing trips with freezing temperatures in mind. Bobber and jig fishing can be tough with line stuck to the guides in my rod.
That doesn’t mean I don’t fish for steelhead. I just spend more time pulling plugs.
I can also troll plugs and flies at Rufus Woods and do the same at Lake Roosevelt and Banks Lake. Its bundle up time to be out in the boat and don’t forget the heater! This is also the time of year that I fire up the smoker. I have a good supply of salmon caught this summer and early fall.
My wife got me a great smoker a few years ago, that automatically feeds the chips, so I can watch football while the smoker is cooking away. Most of what I produce is then made into a spread with cream cheese. I hand it out to family, friends and clients.
It is very popular at Holiday parties and family gatherings—if they share. I have found out that many people horde it and eat it all by themselves! Look for my recipe in the Nickel Ads in your area.
