Omak Lake producing good numbers of trout

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

I have been dedicating a lot of trips to walleye fishing this spring.

No wonder.

The fishing has been fantastic! Turns out I have missed some great trout fishing. I am getting reports of really great fishing on many of our area lakes. I reported earlier that I did get to Buffalo Lake in mid April. My wife, her sister and I had amazing fishing there.

I had received a note and a short video from a kayak angler that follows my reports and he went to Omak Lake. He had such a good time he went back.

He reported to me that he and a friend had landed close to 50 cutthroat from their kayaks, including one that was 28 inches. They then went to Buffalo Lake and terrific fishing there before getting blown off. They got lots of the recently planted 15- and 16-inchers, some larger carryovers and even some of the triploids.

I really hope to find time to get to Omak Lake this year. It sounds like it is having one of its best seasons in a while, and it is usually outstanding. These lakes are on the Colville Reservation, and I have done Fishing TV Shows on both of them.

Check the archives on the Fishing TV Page to view these informative shows.
