Three of us took to Sprague lake to test our skills. We heard of large bows and the bonus of steelhead. The East end healed the steelhead but they were small. 9 to 10 inches. We put in at 4 Seasons resort and had 2, rainbows 3 pound plus when we reached the East end and were catching the small steelhead. So we returned to the West end and completed the day with a total of 8 big rainbows and one German Brown, 14 inches long. That Brown sure surprised me since it has not been that long ago that they poisoned Sprague lake. The beautiful day was spent trolling pink or orange/tan Apex lures. The pink Apex even caught the Brown trout.
