The Online Source for Washington Fishing Information

Yesterday(4-21) My son and I took a trip around some of the lakes in South Pierce
County,no fishing rods,just an excuse to get out on a nice day.
We stopped at Tanwax and walked the dock at the Lakeview Resort.
Brett got my attention by saying "What's dat?" (add a 3 year olds voice)
I first assumed it was some plant debris/pollen but upon a further look,I noticed
they were schooling,so I scooped some up with my hand....Sure enough,they were fish
fry. They were yellowish in color and just a bit bigger then the tip of a pencil. They're
were millions of them hanging by the docks. Not sure what fish have already finished
their spawn,perch maybe?
Curious as to what you folks think.

I live about 10 minutes away from Tanawax. They have to be yellow perch fry, they spawn the earliest around 48-50 degree water temps.

I could be perch. I have seen alot of them in Lake Terrell three days ago. There are tons of them in the shallow back water.

There are Threadfin Shad in Washington? I know there are American Shad that run the Columbia but I have never heard of any Threadfin Shad in WA?

probably Carp or threadfin shad. Mark would probably know just from the yellow discription.
