Eastside fishing opportunities increase as the weather warms up

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

Warmer weather has anglers out and about in the region, with good reports of trout fishing, kokanee fishing and walleye anglers are starting to do well on the Columbia.

The lakes near Quincy are producing very good numbers of rainbow, and some of the bigger fish planted for the Quincy Tagged Trout Derby are being caught, too.  The popular lakes right now are Burke and Quincy in the Quincy Wildlife Area. The lakes near George, Martha and Caliche, are also providing good catches.

Kokanee anglers are getting more fish on Lake Chelan and the schools will soon be more abundant in the lower basin.  Anglers fishing near the Yacht Club were having the best success, but Mill Bay and Rocky Point should be producing soon.

Walleye anglers have been doing well at the upper end of Rufus Woods and at Two Rivers and the Spokane Arm on Lake Roosevelt.  There are several popular spots above Rocky Reach to Wells Dam that will be seeing some action soon.

Don’t forget that Wednesday is the seminar at Town Ford on kokanee fishing at Lake Chelan and spring Chinook fishing on the Wenatchee and Icicle rivers.
