Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
I made another road trip to check on fishing in a couple of areas in our region. I traveled north to Lake Chelan and Roses Lake, and then south to Moses Lake and Potholes Reservoir.
I talked to two anglers that had been fishing on Chelan and had found the fishing slow last Friday. They had just one trout for their efforts.
Roses Lake ice shouldn’t be trusted. The cold weather we are going to get may improve conditions here, but I would not venture out on it quite yet.
There are still ice fishermen on the ice at Moses Lake, but not in the numbers that I saw here earlier. I found out where they were going, though, and that is to Lind Coulee, near where it enters Potholes Reservoir.
I was on my way to try the fishing at Medicare Beach, and was surprised to see a huge crowd on Lind Coulee below the parking area on Road M. The road to the fishing accesses to the coulee was crowded with vehicles, and people are pulling sleds and even putting up shacks from the middle to the far side of the coulee. Perch and some walleye are being caught here now.
