Dewey Lake hike in the foothills of Mount Rainier September 1, 2012

No Gravatar

A great day’s hiking (roughly 7 miles) close to Mount Rainier.  I took along a travel fly rod and managed to hook a couple of little trout in Dewey Lake.

    An amazing October day saw us hike 7 miles into and out of Mason Lake basin.  This time without Roby sliding down onto the rocks (see here).

Lake Lenice September 27, 2009

It was a 3am start this morning before a drive out to Lake Lenice.  We arrived just before dawn and were out on the lake as the sun came up.  Apparently it was slow fishing today with us getting only three fish between us but given that these were all in the 18-19″ range there was no reason for complaint.

    Up early and out on Beaver Lake in the canoe. We didn't catch anything but the boys enjoyed paddling and Ben was in charge of the motor/steering this time out.

    We braved a rainy start and were rewarded with a pleasant hike up to Talapus Lake.

Tough going in a pontoon kick-boat on Rattlesnake.  The wind often blows down through the valley and once down a the far end of the lake it was hard work pushing back against the breeze.

    We walked up to Rattlesnake Ledge and then did the Rattlesnake Lake trail.  Fantastic warm spring day with snow patches remaining in the forest.  Quick pinic overlooking the lake. We covered about 8 miles in total.

    Mirror Lake is an hour or so hike from the the nearest road.  The water is crystal clear and, even in July, was surrounded by snow.  Given its relatively remote location few people venture there to fish.  The scenery is breathtaking.

    Took our new kayaks out for a test paddle on Beaver Lake. The weather wasn't great this morning but it brightened up enough for us to get out. The boys did well paddling together in the smaller of the two boats.

    A lovely afternoon walk in the park next to Beaver Lake.  Snow on the ground but not a cloud in the sky.  The boys really enjoyed running through the trails and searching for the hidden geocaches.   Beaver Lake is approximately 80 acres of tranquil water located on the southern stretch of Sammamish.…

    Didn’t quite make it all the way to Lake Serene – the snow was a little too treacherous for the last half mile.

    We’d made it over but the furniture shipment was still coming over.  So we spent most of the time sitting on the floor.  Some time in January a container arrived and the feeling that we were camping in a big house started to go away.  Oh yeah, the –20 deg…

Typical Lake Alice rainbow trout caught, in this case, on an orange streamer.

The right hand photo shows the view from the boat launch. A quiet spot that happened to be the first place I caught a fish in Washington.  Typically I’ve used simple streamers pulled slowly through the water; slow or near stationary nymphs or small dry flies seem to work fine too.

I’ve had perhaps the most enjoyable take of a nymph on Lake Alice when I saw a trout feeding about 25 yards away working along in a line about a foot below the surface and causing the surface water to churn. I casted 5-6 yards ahead of the fish with a bite indicator that suspended the nymph about 18″ below the surface.  I then watched as the trout made successive takes under the surface moving directly toward my fly – each time I counted down 3, 2, 1 – bang.  The indicator shot down and the fish was hooked.  It turned out to be a rainbow trout about 15″ long.
