Winter Trout Fishing
December is full of time to reflect back on this past year, enjoy family and friends, and trout fishing. Yes, trout fishing! Thanks to WDFW late fall planting of thousands of trout the fishing is really good throughout the winter. Most of the lakes that received the late plants also received fish this past spring which have grown all summer and provide an opportunity at some nice sized rainbows. The lakes are mostly in major metropolitan areas in Western Washington but the ones located in Easte...

Fall into Fishing
For the second year the WDFW is putting on their “Fall Into Fishing” program. If you are unfamiliar with this program it involves a fall round of planting trout in lakes around the state to fuel fall trout fishing. The number of fish planted is considerably less than the spring plants, but the average size is significantly larger.

Fall Fishing For Trout
As I write this I hear the first of the fall rains hitting the roof. Normally this would cause me to make sure my coho river fishing gear is all in order and ready to go. This year, unfortunately, many of my normal fall salmon fishing locations are closed in order to protect the low forecasted return of coho.My plan instead is to get back to trout fishing. Before I got into salmon fishing, I’d fish for trout year round. Fall can be an excellent time for trout – the combination of coolin...

Getting Started Fly Fishing
Now that fly-fishing has become fairly mainstream it is enjoying a rather large influx of beginners each season. These newcomers are getting younger and the percentage of ladies increases every year. It is believed by some in the fly fishing world that ladies compile the largest group of newcomers to the sport.I guess it’s not just your father’s sport anymore. I started fly fishing in the early 70’s because it seemed to me that the fly fisherman were catching more fish than I was and they p...

Spring Trout Tips
When I hear the opening lines of the song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” I don’t think of Christmas. Instead I think of late spring fishing small lakes for trout.Here in Washington state spring means Opening Day of trout season. Even though there are plenty of places you can fish year round in the state for trout, this is a special time when waters that have been closed all winter open to fishing, prepped by the WDFW with freshly planted trout to augment existing populations. ...

Caddis Fly: Don’t Leave Home Without it
I was asked the other day which fly I would never leave home without. I quickly answered, “a caddis of course”. I think that would be the answer that most fly fishers would give. The caddis fly is thought of around the world as the fly fisher’s best friend.More than 1,200 caddis species inhabit the rivers and lakes of North America. Caddis hatches are often the first to appear in April and occur right through October. Now don’t ask me to identify all 1,200.It’s really not necessary. Good t...
