I had heard some reports on good fishing for Lahontan cutthroat at Omak Lake from Anton Jones, at Darrell and Dads Guide Service, and it got me excited about going up there. This Colville Reservation lake is one of my favorites and I have been fishing there for about 20 years. Mike and Matt McKee and Dan Carr joined me for the trip. We launched at Mission Bay and I pointed the Kingfisher down lake to where I had found good numbers of fish on my last visit to Omak. Sure enough, there were cutthroat hanging out here and we landed a double right off the bat. I had to look for fish occasionally, but we found enough to keep us busy. I was using a 4-inch Needlefish on one rod and a large plug on the other. Both lures were working just fine. We got a couple of fish in the 14- to 16-inch class, but most were 18 or 19 inches. We got several over 20 inches, including Matt McKee’s big one for the day that stretched the tape to 27 inches. Mike figured it weighed close to 10 pounds! Remember a tribal license is required to fish at Omak Lake, and you can pick one up at Wal-Mart in town.
