Outdoor writer Dave Graybill looks at many east side fishing options

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

I traveled through Pateros and Brewster on my way to Lake Roosevelt on Wednesday and found both these towns busy.

The Pateros Lakeshore Inn, the convenience store and restaurant are all open and the Lake Pateros Inn is being cleaned and will open soon. There is a huge fleet of boats, even on a week day, out on the Brewster Pool to take advantage of the summer run and sockeye fishing.

The annual Budweiser-Lowrance King Salmon Derby is Brewster is this weekend and I will be there to see how many fish were caught this year. I just looked at the dam counts and realized that there still are more sockeye on their way to Brewster than the total of the sockeye run last year.

There is still a lot of great fishing ahead of us in August. I also talked to a friend that had spent last weekend in Conconully and he and his family had a great time.

There is plenty of room at the parks and resorts here and fishing for trout and bass is very good. I am going to plan a trip to Omak Lake. The cutthroat there are big and plentiful.
