On Sunday my wife Eileen and I surveyed some of the lakes that opened on March 1st. We first stopped at Quincy Lake and were awed at the number of boats and water, the cars, trucks, trailers, RVs and campers crowded around or near the lake. People always turn out for this “unofficial opener of trout season” in North Central Washington. Success varied, as usual, and I talked to anglers that had nothing to show for their efforts while others had limits or close to it. The trout I measured were all close to 12 inches long. One angler, who had hiked into Spring Lake had one trout that was very close to 18 inches. Although Burke Lake had received a plant of 3,500 catchable trout the Friday prior to the opener, few people fished here. Fishing was slow at Martha Lake when we stopped by, but people were having better luck at Caliche Lake. I saw people with three to five rainbow here, and the trout were 10 to 12 inches. Fishing should be good for those who fish the Quincy Chamber of Commerce Trout Derby at Quincy Lake on Saturday, March 7th. You don’t want to miss the fun of this one.
