There are a lot of firsts with this particular report. It's my first report submission on this site, the first time I've fished Lake Alice and the first time I've taken out my one-man pontoon.

My father and I arrived at the lake around 10:30 AM. A couple of guys were leaving as we were launching our pontoons for the first time. It looked as though they had success with a few stocker sized trout and the indicated that they had caught some fingerling sized catfish. I didn't know that this lake had a catfish population. Very interesting.

The lake was relatively still and my dad immediately headed toward the middle of the lake to target rainbows while I peeled off to hit the docks on the boat launch side of the lake to entice a lethargic, toad-sized largemouth bass. Long story short, my dad was the only one who successfully landed anything, heaving a small but pretty trout to the surface and into the net. (pic attached) The fish weighed less than his terminal tackle but it was success nonetheless. The fish bit on a nightcrawler dangling from a fire orange wedding ring, trailing the old school pop gear. Dad was trolling (rowing) when the fish took. Quick snapshot and then the fish was released.

Meanwhile, I was working the docks and surrounding shallows with everything I could muster, including topwater lures, jigs and crankbaits. My piece of action came on a square bill crankbait, pulsed to start and stop in about 6 feet of water. First time I had used the lure so I was getting used to the action when I felt a deep pull. Felt more like a smallie than a largemouth, now that I think about it but it just pulled and pulled. I never did see the fish, but it was no stocker rainbow or fingerling catfish. I'd surmise that it was an LMB in the 1-3 lb range. Hard to tell. I never did land the fish, nor did I even see it. It had a stung mouth and decided to wrap me around the dock piling and said sayonara. The two things I didn't do that I will do next time is rig a dropshot and toss a Senko. Both seem like they'd be pretty deadly under the docks, which is were I think the lunkers lurk on this lake.

All in all, a great day on the water with my dad breaking in the new 'toons at a new lake. (I'm a new resident to Snoqualmie) Looking forward to getting into more bass fishing generally and landing one of the "big ones" in this great little lake.

Had some free time this evening, so I decided to see how Lake Alice was fishing. Grabbed 2 of my kids (ages 5 and 6) and was on the lake by about 6:30. They've only been fishing a handful of times, and have never yet caught anything. Threw the anchor and got everybody settled in, and hooked up almost immediately with a nice little rainbow. Fished another 30 minutes and one of the kids got a bite, but she didn't get the hook set so just lost her bait.

Another half hour or so goes by, and I get a nice bite and set the hook. Hand it over to my daughter to reel it in, and she pulls out another nice little rainbow trout. We get it in the boat, but then it flops off the line, hits me in the hands and slides right through and bounces off the side of the boat into the water. Still fun for her though, grinning ear to ear.

Another 30-45 or so, kids are getting tired and wanting to head home (it's about 8-8:15 or so now) so I cast out again and hand her the rod while I start putting away gear. She starts reeling it in, and says "Dad, I think I might have a fish.." so I tell her to set the hook. She does, and starts reeling in. "Actually Dad, I think it's just weeds again" she says.

Now I can see the tip of her rod bouncing and I'm pretty sure she's got a fish on. So I tell her to keep reeling it in and let's take a look. Sure enough, she reels in another nice little trout, this one all on her own!

We had a great time, caught total of 3 fish, took 2 home so they can try their first-caught trout tomorrow.

Need to take a drive so headed out for a drive to Fall City, WA after a small snack decided to go try my luck at some trout at Lake Alice. Arrived at the Lake at 4:40pm Only one car was parked in boat ramp area. Started to set up for bottom fishing from shore and first thing I see is, a custom float with 2 lounge chairs a dog and a electric motor out trolling the lake. It look like a cool craft. Ten minutes later I spotted the Drift boat that belonged with the car parked in boat ramp.

I checked out the boat ramp and looks to be in good shape. Heavy millfoil in the lake after 20 minutes and not one bite I started to see fish surfacing on flies like crazy. You can see rings on images. While fishing I did see people on float tubes as well. The best part of the evening was when a resident walked out on his dock with fly rod in hand. First cast 12 " trout. Three more casts and three more fish within 5 minute period. He cleaned the fish and placed them on a BBQ on his back porch. Lucky Bugger!

Went to the lake to try my hand at landing panfish. Couldn't keep the trout off the line. Bottom fishing with a worm and marshmallows seemed to work well. Trolling a worm worked well too. A cryptic magic spell would have probably worked too.....or maybe a cheeto. Tried to cast a worm by the docks and landed a small bass, but nothing to write home about. Caught a small trout in the lip and went to let him go.....and he acted like he was fatally injured! (I swear he wasn't) He floated off farther than I could get him back and within a few minutes he got the attention of the local eagles. 20 feet from the boat an eagle swooped down and picked him up! That was cool! My camera failed to catch it, otherwise I would have a picture of that! Stuck around the lake catching nice trout until I had my fill. This is one of my favorite lakes as it is rarely busy and the fish are worth the trip. Later in the summer the west side lights up for big bass too.
Please keep in mind that the houses around this lake use the lake water as their home water supply so it is considered good sportsmanship to respect the water quality and refrain from polluting it. Trust me, the local residents appreciate it.

The morning started out cold, air temperature about freezing but the sky was clear and little or no wind. I usually do well on Alice in the spring with an intermediate sink line but not today; I do not know if it was the sunny day or the cormorants but I could not find fish in the top few feet near the surface. I switched to a full sink and caught a couple of trout on green nymphs at depth of 8 - 10 feet. The catching seemed to be generally slow; I did not see any other anglers catch fish. Anyway it was my first fishing trip of the season and I had a good time. Maybe I will do better next week.

Hit Lake Alice 2x this week. Tuesday the 15th the wife and I hit it around 3:30PM and fished until 7. She got 2 real nice ones, around 14" or so. I got a decent 12" chromer. Nightcrawlers and marshmallows were the ticket. Kept these and had nice, pink meat for dinner.

Got there this morning at 7:45 and tried everything in the tackle box, finally got a hit around 11:45 on a nightcrawler/marshmallow combo. Nice, bright 13" rainbow. An hour later I got another, around 10" this time. let 'em both go and threw in the towel around 1:30.

Fished Alice this morning in rain, wind, sleet and sun; a least it wasn't cold - mid 40's. Caught only 1 trout in the first hour on a brown soft hackle and had numerous strikes. Changed from brown to green fly and caught 5 fish in the next 30 minutes. Used a full sink line and the fish appeared to be between 5 and 10 feet down.

Mark Yuasa from the Seattle Times reported that Alice would be stocked a few days before me and a buddy went out. Thought it would be quick limits, but it was cold, snowed on us even. To make life more interesting we decided to go out in our float tubes. I tried some fly fishing, no luck. Caught 5 trout on a red wedding ring tipped with crawler, my buddy got one on a fly. Kept one carryover fish and 2 stockers. On the water about three hours and it took my toes about that long to feel normal again. Fun day none the less. It's a fairly shallow lake so I just ran a straight wedding ring, no weight and no sling blade or other attractors. Had 20 nibbles, but I think they needed a few days to acclimate and warm up. I opened the belly on the big boy and it was full of debris from the bottom of the lake, thought afterward that powerbait off the bottom might have been the ticket, but BORING. Not my style of fishing.

Fish were undetectable until about 10am when the fog cleared and the bugs came out - lots of trout jumping. I had no luck with a black/yellow spinner w/ a gold spoon out in the middle of the lake, just casting from my row boat. A couple of boats trolling seemed to have decent luck once that fog cleared.. I watched each of them bring in a few fish. I also tried bottom fishing w/ power bait but not even a bite.
