Trout Fishing


If you like lake fishing, come fish with Bob on some of the most beautiful, scenic Washington Lakes. We have some of the best Trout and Walleye fishing that the state has to offer. I fish for Rainbow Trout, Kokanee Silver Salmon, and some of the biggest Triploid Trout in the United States.

Western Washington Lakes

Lake Mayfield -- July-Sept
This beautiful, bold bodied lake, roughly 4 miles in length, holds hatchery rainbow Trout 1-3 lbs, and also holds Tiger Muskie.

Riffe Lake -- July-Sept
This, large man-made, 21 mile long scenic lake, holds hatchery rainbow Trout 1-3lbs; and land-locked Kokanee Silver Salmon 1-2lbs.

Eastern Washington Lakes

Lake Rufus Woods -- May-June
This 52 mile reservoir, stretching from the Grand Coulee Dam to the Chief Joseph Dam, tributary to the Columbia River, is an excellent fishery and has many fishing holes along its banks, holding the almighty fighting, Triploid Trout 3-12lbs and up, and Walleye 4-9lbs.

Lake Roosevelt -- May-June

The sprawling Banks Lake reservoir covers 30,000 acres, 31 miles in length and Steamboat Rock being one of its major attractions. This lake has the finest Walleye and Bass fishing in the state.
