The opening of the lowland lakes trout season is just a week away, and I hope you have your license, got the camping gear sorted out and made sure your boat is running. This is the biggest day of fishing for the whole year as families take off for their favorite lake. Campgrounds are chock full all over Eastern Washington, and boats cover the waters. A new option for anglers who plan to fish this weekend is to participate in the Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge. This local derby offers the opportunity to fish Banks Lake and catch a rainbow trout, a smallmouth bass and a walleye on Saturday and Sunday of next week. The anglers that accomplish this can win some big prizes, including an inflatable boat with motor. There are prizes for the biggest fish of each of these species each day, too. To get all the details on how to enter and how to win in the Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge log onto The headquarters for the event is at Coulee Playland on Banks, and they have plenty of camping space and RV hookups, too.
