I was looking back through my photos to see what I was doing in the past this time of year. I found some great shots of fish caught at Curlew Lake. This was one of the places my wife Eileen and liked to run off to in the early fall. We would start each day fishing for trout. I would check my watch to see how long it would take us to catch and release two limits. It rarely took over an hour and the trout were all fat 14-inchers. Then we would switch to bass gear and fish around the edges of the bays. Curlew is loaded with largemouth bass. If you pick up the Nickel Ads Newspapers anywhere in Eastern Washington the photo of me on the first page with a nice largemouth was taken at Curlew. The photo that brought back a great memory was of Jack Walker with a rainbow of at least 4 pounds. Jack was a regular at Curlew and stayed there for months each year. He was glad to share his knowledge of the lake and was a legend for catching big fish. Jack is gone and now and sorely missed. He was special kind of guy and they just don’t make many more like him.
