I am getting a huge amount of snow at my home in Leavenworth, and what I get reflects what is piling up at Fish Lake. However, those that are willing to slog through the snow and drill holes in the ice up there are finding the perch bite quite good. The guy that plows my driveway said he had a great day there recently, catching a 25-fish limit of nice perch and got a triploid rainbow that barely fit through the hole! Anton Jones at Darrell and Dads Family Guide Service reports that Roses Lake, near Lake Chelan is producing very good catches of planted rainbow and more than the usual number of perch. I have always wanted to try the perch fishing at Roses Lake, and it sounds like this is the year to do it. I got a note from Stuart Hurd, Hurd’s Guide Service, telling me that the triploids at Rufus Woods are still biting, even in a snow storm. He said it is warmer when it snows than when we fished there last, and he is getting the same good numbers of fish. Hurd launches above the dam at Bridgeport and doesn’t run that far up the reservoir to find triploids willing to bite.
