The April 26 lowland lakes opener was a great start to what is shaping up to be a terrific new season of fishing. Opening day trout creel counts show good fishing in most parts of the state with lots of happy anglers.  As usual, local weather was a challenge in some places, and WDFW reminds everyone to wear their life jackets.

If you missed the lowland lakes opener, the lakes are still being stocked, and there is still time to Fish Washington!
