The weather here in Central Washington continues to be fair and mild, and that means it’s a great time to get out on many of the region’s lakes that remain open for trout fishing. There’s a pretty long list of late season bets. Up north, Aneas, near Tonasket, which is a fly fishing only lake is producing good catches of rainbow up to 15 inches, as is Big Twin, Davis and Patterson lakes, all near Winthrop. All of these lakes remain open at least until the end of the month, and some through the winter. Check you regulations book for the dates. Davis is a winter-managed lake, and Patterson is open year-round. Both of these offer great ice fishing through the winter months. In the Columbia Basin, Dusty Lake, Lenice and Nunnally still are very good bets and are very popular with fly fishers. Lenice and Dusty should produce some very large, and I mean state record size tiger trout this fall. Lake Lenore is still not up to its standard for fall fishing. There are a few very large Lahontan cutthroat coming from the lake, but the pace will pick up when the water cools a bit more.
