Outdoor writer Dave Graybill surveys Rufus Woods for trout

10704035_10204973259601587_5032341794458860196_nHere is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

After I toured the Colville Tribal Fish Hatchery in Bridgeport I had time before my next appointment to do some checking on the fishing at Rufus Woods Reservoir.

When I came up over the hill I saw one boat working the can line, and when I got to the boat launch I found four trailers parked here. The other anglers had run up river, maybe all the way to the net pens.

I checked on some of the bank fishermen and found that the bite was slow that day. Just one of the fish from the latest release had been landed, and it was under 2 pounds.

Talking to some other anglers I learned that bigger fish are still available in Rufus, but are being taken mainly by trollers that are fishing big plugs deep.

I spend most of the weekend in Tri-Cities and the TRAC attending the first sport show of the season. I was with the folks from Bob Feil Boats and Motors and got to talk to al lot of anglers about fishing in our region. I really enjoy these shows as I meet a lot of new people, but also get caught up with people that I see here every year.

Later this week I will be going over to the show in Puyallup and the Boat Show in Seattle.
