I hope to get up to Rufus Woods this week and try my luck from the shore at the middle net pens. Rufus is the hottest thing going this time of year and have had some great days in February. A few years ago I fished with Austin Moser on the Nespelem Bar, across from the upper net pens, to see if could catch some walleye. We did get a few, but now Austin really has it dialed in and catches lots of walleye on this bar. One of the fun aspects of fishing here is that you often get your limit of triploids while fishing for walleye. I do the same thing, but I troll downstream with bottom bouncers below the upper pens. I have fished at Brandts Landing a couple of times this winter and some days I have had great luck and others not so much. I checked in Jill Phillips at the Colville Hatchery about what they have planned for releases this year. She said that they will release about 10,000 fish weighing between 1.5 and 2 pounds in February. There will be other releases prior to the runoff, and I will keep you posted about those.
