For, I'm Eric Granstrom. We're closing in on the lowland lake opener across the State of Washington. And in preparation, the Department of Fish and Wildlife have been busy stocking lakes in our region and around the State. For those of you following our Facebook page, you can watch a video shot Sunday at Jameson Lake of some lunker fish being planted. According to whomever is releasing the fish, they're 3-to-5 pounds apiece. Also in Douglas County, the lakes around Rock Island have received their plants for the spring, each receiving plants of rainbow ranging from a half-pound to nearly 2-pounds. Big Bow received 2,000. Hammond Lake got 1,600. Putters Pond received 2,100 and the Pit Pond juvenile lake had 1,000 planted. Of course, plenty of other fish are being planted throughout Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan and Grant Counties. You can check the Fish and Wildlife's website for further plant information. We're two-and-a-half weeks away from the opener and I know plenty of families that are already making their plans for the annual tradition. What's really fun is to take a drive to Jameson or Wapato and visit with some of the families gathered for a family fishing weekend. Until next time, Good Fishing!
