On my way home from a trip to Lake Roosevelt I had to make some stops. First I pulled into to the marina in Coulee City to take a photo of the ice huts that are still out near here on Banks Lake. I was surprised to see that they are still sitting out there while the ice is going fast on most of the lakes in our region. While I was there one of my fishing buddies from our trip to Lake Roosevelt pulled in beside me. He wanted to tell me he stopped at the ramp at Northrup and ran into an angler who had just come off the water walleye fishing. He had a limit catch of really nice walleye, too. They ranged in size from 17 to 21 inches. I am very eager to get out and get some of these myself. My last stop was at Burke Lake, in the Quincy Wildlife Area. It was almost dark when I got there but I could see that there is plenty of open water for the March 1st opening of this lake and several others in Grant County. It will be chilly but the trout fishing should be good.
