I got a really good report from my brother Rick on the fishing at Rufus Woods. He and my cousin Greg Preston spent a few days in Grand Coulee area and bounced around exploring Rufus Woods, Lake Roosevelt and even ran up to Porcupine Bay on the Spokane Arm. Rufus Woods was by far the best. On two separate outings that only lasted a few hours, due to wind, they caught double digit numbers of triploids. They were just side drifting and casting 1/4-ounce jigs to the shore and twitching them back to the boat. Rick thought that the trout were larger than usual. Many were in the 4- to 6-pound range, and one they figured weighed well over 10 pounds. They were launching at Seatons Grove and working their way down to the Nespelem Bar, across from the net pens. They did spend some time looking for walleye on Rufus, and even in Porcupine Bay. They got blown off before they could give this a decent try, or the flow just wasn’t strong to expect good fishing. They did a very nice unclipped rainbow on Lake Roosevelt. They estimated its weight at 3 ½ to 4 pounds.
Here is my cousin Greg Preston with a whopper triploid from Rufus Woods.
