RE:Lake WA cutthroats/Donaldson trout

The only stocking info that shows up on the WDFW page is WDFW stockings. That's why I was wondering if the UW is still fiddling with Donaldsons. I find it strange that the biggest lake cutthroats are found only in Lake WA. Lake WA cutts should be sea-run progeny and the biggest searun registered wa...

RE:Lake WA cutthroats/Donaldson trout

I don't think Donaldson trout have been stocked in WA since the 1980s or early 1990s, and maybe even stopped before then. Lake WA does get a small stocking every June for free fishing weekend... The WDFW or a private organization sets up a net pen in Gene Coulon park for a Cast for Kids event. They ...

GI Joes usually puts the Berkley rods on sale every couple of weeks for about 50 bucks. Lowest I've seen it was around 40 bucks.

I have never read this mag, but aside from here, all i have heard is bad things about it.

Many people HATE this magazine for that reason, and for that reason...

Stay 100 yards away from the mouth of Issy Creek at all times. I don't know about the shores, but the helicopter pad house is a good place to be. FYI the 100-yard closure at the mouth of the creek is only when salmon fishing. When you are fishing for gamefish, like trout, bass, panfish, etc., you c...

RE:Cedar River Regulations - How Close Can You Fish To the River From The Lake

The open areas of the Cedar River are defined as "from mouth to Cedar Falls" on page 40 of the regs. So, Lake Washington is the body of water outside of "the mouth". With that in mind, the regs on page 25 define a mouth as: "Unless otherwise defi ned, the mouth of a stream, river, or slough is a lin...
