Washington Fishing

The Online Source for Washington Fishing Information

Took my 3 year old boy up to Fivemile and worked the outside of the pads
from the shoreline,using crappie nibbles(white) and a bobber. Panfish seem to
be huddled up pretty tight together. Our first cast yielded a small gill...by the end of the day
we had caught around 20 or so. All fish were released. Small hooks are key,we were using
a size 16. The bite was constant...perfect for keeping kids interested. I highly
encourage you folks that live nearby to check it out,the kids will have a blast.
The area fished was just a few feet from the swimming area. Just cast out a few feet
and if that bobber hasn't moved within 20 seconds,just cast a little further out/in.
They seemed to be moving up and down the outside edge of the pads.
Goodluck out there.

My understanding is there used to be the Tiny launch at the south end that Aaron's talking about, but its now fenced off. I would drag my small boat across the grass from the parking lot, 80-100 yards, but its alot of work and I'd probably get locked in as late as I throw topwater.
All I know is that is the darkest water I've ever seen, and I know there are hawgs in there. Getting there attention is probably half the challenge.

Better get there soon.
The park dwellers will clean out any fish within casting distance.
That is what they do.

I don't think there is a place to launch there, is there? I used to fish it when I was a kid all the time. We would ride our bikes up to the old boat lauch (more like a tiny dirt bank) and fish bluegill under the trees. A inch or so of worm and a tiny hook is all you need. We could catch hundreds in a few hours. No joke.

I believe you can bring you big boat and just keep the motor trimmed up.

Exactly Eric. I have been meaning to try the lake for the last year now. I have messed around off the dock and shore once or twice. Time to pump up the float tube.
