Wednesday, September 1, 2021
By Dave Graybill
There are changes in the seasons that come each fall when some of our area lakes will close to fishing. The lakes that I am going to mention will be open for the month of September, so you will want to get at them before the end of the month. There are many lakes in the Seep Lakes Wildlife Area which is part of the Columbia Wildlife Refuge. This area is south of Highway 262 and north of Othello. There are well over a dozen popular lakes in this area of Grant County, and you should check the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Sportfishing Rules pamphlet to see if some of your lakes are affected. Other lakes closing at the end of the month in Grant County are Park, Blue, Perch and Deep Lakes in the Sun Lakes Park area. In Spokane County Fish Lake and Fishtrap Lake close September 30th. It would be a good idea to review the regulations for Sprague for the fall, and Coffee Pot Lake to the east is also closing September 30th. Cooler temperatures will make trout fishing in these lakes a good prospect, and spiny ray fishing will also improve.
