I didn’t have a lot of time on Tuesday, and I almost ran up to Fish Lake, near Lake Wenatchee. I don’t do that often enough. It’s just about 20 miles from my house in Leavenworth, and it’s a very scenic drive through the Tumwater Canyon. If you live in the Wenatchee Valley it makes for a great day trip. Fish Lake has been a popular destination for trout anglers for decades. It gets a good plant of catchable-size trout in the spring and additional plants of smaller trout and fry later on. There are always plenty of nice rainbow to be caught here. The folks at the Cove Resort have planted triploid rainbow of some size in the lake over the years and it’s a nice surprise to catch one of those whoppers. Brown trout have always been in the lake and something that is fairly new is the kokanee that have been introduced recently. I like to fish for the largemouth bass. Most of the bass I catch are at least 2 to 3 pounds. By far the most popular species in the lake are the perch. These keep people busy year-round. I gotta get up there!
