We camped out along the river near the middle net pens. Brought plenty of firewood, had killer campfires and roasted Costco dogs. The fishing was really tough for us the first three days. Saturday we only got one trout, Sunday we got none. Monday evening we finally found some fish and figured out what they wanted. We hooked four, broke off two and landed two. Tuesday morning it snowed from 7:30 until about 9:00. We built a big campfire and ate breakfast, then were able to get our limit and be headed home a little after noon. Definitely a learning experience, but a great time!

Trent: Forum codes do not work here, and YouTube vids need to have the Embed tags, not forum tags. If you want to choose 2 photos to have attached to the report you can send them to us at support@washingtonlakes.com.

What are the correct YouTube vid embed tags?

The fish were very leader shy so we were using 6 lb test fluorocarbon on ultralights. I suspect the 1st fish broke because of bad spot in the line. The 2nd fish broke off because it was about twice as large as any of the fish we caught, and it got two of the other lines wrapped around it during the fight. We tried to keep the other two lines slack, but the fish made a run for it and snapped the leader.

Trent, were you serious reporting the use of Marshmallows? With power play dough I presume......>LOL!<

Yes, as a matter of fact I am. We did not hear of a single trout being caught all weekend by trolling or jigging. So we went with what worked. Some people don't allow ego to keep them from catching fish... ;^)
