Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
Our two neighbor girls, Rory and Greer Swabota, take care of our cats when we travel.
This year among the treats that we give the girls for this chore were two fishing rods, and a promise that my wife Eileen and I would take them fishing.
Last Friday we made good on our promise. We took Rory, Greer and their Mom Heidi to Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee to do some perch fishing.
There was a stiff breeze blowing, but not too much for my Minn Kota in Anchor Mode could handle. I schooled the girls on how the push button reels on their new rods worked, and in no time at all they were pulling in perch.
Their Mom Heidi, who is a professional photographer, got some great shots of the ospreys plucking fish off the surface while we plumbed the depths. This is a great time to take the kids to Fish Lake.
I remember my Dad doing the same thing with us when I was the age of these two girls. It is so much fun catching these fish, and the real payoff is the fish fry that comes after. The Swabota girls like eating fish as much as catching them, and they are really looking forward to their fresh perch fish fry.
