When WA opened to fishing on Tuesday May 5th we were not staying home. Fished both Blue Lake (5/5) and Park (5/6-5/7). My dad fishing Blue Lake more than I did.
Tuesday afternoon I took the kayak out and pulled Vance Dodgers with Kokabow spinners. Couldn’t keep them off. Caught over 40 trout. Wednesday we wanted to beat the wind forecasted and fished Park Lake off the docks early in morning. Fish were larger here and we caught our limits quick with basic bait gear (Power eggs, slip sinker). 40+ mph winds hit soon after and stayed all day. Thursday took my kids back to Park Lake and they had a blast catching their first fish of the year. Limited in 30 minutes. Just happy to be fishing again and eating fresh caught fish.
