I tried to put this report in the normal way, but the lake isn't on the list yet. So, until that happens, I guess it's a "secret lake" on DNR land in Stevens County. [hint: it's on Pingston Creek Road]

I went out today after work with the intention of stripping streamers for trout. I got there around 7 p.m. and fished until dark, no luck with the trout. I was fly fishing and using a few different patterns that normally work well with planted fish.

I caught (and released) 7 average sized bluegills in about an hour, and they all bit on the strip. That made it fun anyway. Also came face-to-face with a young (maybe 400 lb.) bull moose, I'm glad I didn't soil my waders.

I wasn't going to post this one because of the negativity, but a friend talked me into it. 4 of us had a banner day today. 223 crappie and 1 lonely SMB. My first time fishing with these guys, was a great day all around. We only fished about 4hrs in the morning.

Weather was not the greatest today, Rain finally ran me off the lake but not before I managed to put 31 in the live well. Pictured are 27 I kept for my freezer. Tight lines to all !!!

Had a great day on the water fish were biting the flies like crazy. All of them were the jumbos the state planted and boy did they put up a fight. This one is about 15 inches and was about the average size for all the fish my dad and I caught that day, landed about 10 fought about 15 each.

Opening Fishing Day!!!

I was out on my IN-Laws private lake in Port Orchard, Fairview Lake, and had a spectacular morning with The FIL and a buddy from work. the fish were put in several days ago and i was operating on the theory that they would be running higher in the water column.

I used a weighted bobber with a 3ft leader, another small split shot , and bait. I primarily used Shrimp flavored salmon eggs and red salmon eggs. I outfished those with powerbait and landed a 2.5 pounder and a 1.5 pounder.

Beautiful fish and had a great morning.

Fished 4/15 & 4/16 at a little big area I keep under wraps. Lots of guys out bass fishing at this western WA lake. Most of them are not aware there are crappie in there with those LMB's. It was a fantastic trip both days. 4/15 I was alone in my boat for 3hrs and caught 68 crappie, 6 LMB & 1 Koke. 4/16 went back with a friend and caught 166 crappie, 8 LMB, 1 SMB, 1 Perch and 3 Rainbows. All fish released save we kept some crappie for the freezer / frying pan.

The pic of the live well is from day 1 and the pic of my cooler is from day 2, Tight lines fellas

Wife and I spent some time this last weekend on a get away. Saturday afternoon she said why don't you go fishing. I had found a year round lake that was close so I headed out to explore. The lake has a few cabins on it perhaps just summer stuff didn't hear much noise.

There was some road traffic, but no one was on the water or saw no other cars.

Found a place I could get to the lake from the beach and rigged my stuff up. Loaded up the hook with some of the finest Walmart "secret" Styrofoam cup bait and hurled it out to see what happens. For the first 30 -40 minutes it was really disappointing not even any fish jumping. I got a bit and it was a swing and a miss. So I reloaded and put it back in the same area. 20 minutes or so I had another bite and this one stuck. Ended up with a cut drug up on the lawn. Reloaded and chucked it back it the general area. It was sort of like a light switch the next 20 minutes I put 4 more on the lawn.

With the exception of the pending storm front and the cold winds it was a nice day.

This weekend the wife and I had none of the kids around so we headed out by ourselves . Saturday afternoon she said why don't you go fishing for a while. She chose not to go said she would stay and read. I found a lake open year round and so I went to see what it was like.

Nice quiet lake a few cabins on the shore but pretty much to my self had a few cars running u and down on the road. The weather was a Blustery the wind was blowing but not awfully cold. I rigged up a rod with some of the Walmart super bait in the Styrofoam cup. Hurled it out and waited.

Pretty much nothing for about an hour then I had a hit!!! Swing and a miss. Guess that's why they call it fishin. Reloaded and put it back in the same area and got ready again.

Maybe 20 minutes later I got another bite. This time it stuck. I had a Cutt on the lawn. Reloaded and pretty much same place and had another. It took about 30 minutes to put all 5 fish on the lawn

Looking forward to giving it another try on return trip.

Tried again to hook into some flounder this morning at a local dock, had no luck, no bites, no sign of life. So we figured we would try something a little different. My buddy and I decided to try out a lake I haven't fished for in probably more that 15 years. We arrived in the afternoon and began throwing out bait on drop-shot and carolina rigs. On the side I was casting out various lures just to have something different in the water. After around 10 casts I thought I snagged, after a few seconds trying to figure out what I snagged on the brown trout jumped out of the water. Put up a good fight for its size and was very chunky for its size as well. Kept receiving little bites close to shore but was not able to get another to hookup, could have been really small fish nipping at it or something else was happening. Happy to get this brown, I have never caught a brown before and it was on my list of new species to catch this year so for that I'm giving this a 4!
