Ahhh, Banks Lake! Dad and I hooked into some nice Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass there last week.>>
Ahhh, Banks Lake! Dad and I hooked into some nice Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass there last week. Warming water temperatures are key this time of year for catching those bass as they head for the shallows and begin to make their beds. Click on the picture for the full story...>>

I spent yesterday Northern Pike fishing on a 15 mile stretch of the Pend Oreille River from south of Usk, through Cusick, and north toward Ruby. There were a few empty trailers at the Cusick boat launch and the boats on the river appeared to be doing the same thing we were…>>
A typical opening day on this lake (2007 photo) can be quite busy, but a few weeks later, the fishing pressure relaxes quite a bit. This year is much the same....It's was a beautiful spring day on West Medical Lake and I'm trying to hook into one of the 2150 large trout plants within this serene, 230-acre body of water...>>
A quick trip out to Clear Lake (my 3rd this month) on a very mild Saturday morning was just what the fishing doctor ordered. Congrats to my buddy Mike for catching his biggest trout on a fly rod! Although there were a few sprinkles and a stiff wind northeast wind, that didn't stop a few fish from tugging on my line or keep the Spokane Fly Fishers Club from their annual B-B-Q. It's been a week since the grand "Kids Fishing" event and an estimated 9000 lucky/uncaught trout were released from the event pen into the open waters. Observations & Tips: Wow, the lake water had warmed from 49° to 55° in 10 days and a lot of the freshly stocked trout are still concentrated in the vicinity of the lake's south side "5mph No Wake Zone"…that's where I caught most of my fish… Oh, and my black wooly bugger didn't produce a single strike.
