When I fished Rufus Woods last week I used my fly rod to catch a dandy triploid. I hadn’t had my fly rod out for a long time. It reminded me that there are some good opportunities for fly fishers this time of year. There are several quality lakes that fly fishers could try before they freeze. Better hurry though, the lakes I mention will close at the end of November. These include Dry Falls, Lenice and Nunnally and Lake Lenore. All of these lakes are managed under selective fishing rules, meaning no bait and single barbless hooks. The daily limit on all of them is one fish with an 18-inch minimum. A lake that got my attention last season, but I didn’t get to fish is Davis Lake, near Twisp. This one fished really well last fall and it is now open year round. This is also a selective rule water, with a daily limit of two fish of at least 14 inches. When it gets cold enough to freeze our area lakes, I then plan a trip to Rocky Ford Creek outside of Ephrata. It is spring fed and never freezes and produces whopper rainbow for fly fishers.
Shown here is the big triploid I got on a fly at Rufus Woods last week.
