Outdoor writer Dave Graybill reports good trout action at Rufus Woods Reservoir

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

Even though there hasn’t been any of the big “releases” of big rainbow from the net pens on Rufus Woods Reservoir, the Colville Tribe has released almost 100,000 smaller fish into the reservoir this year.

This is still attracting good numbers of anglers, and one of them sent me a report on their efforts a week ago. They fished near the dam and caught six fish in about four hours. They also had some dandies follow their baits to the surface.

The fish they landed ranged in size from 14 to 23 inches. From my experience the larger fish will weigh between 3 and 4 pounds. It sounds like Rufus is worth the effort.
