2017 March 1 Lake Opener

Frozen - Medical Lake, March 1st 2017
Medical Lake Boat Launch, March 1st 2017

Frozen

The Eastern Washington Lowland Lakes Opener is today Wednesday March 1st, but it looks most of them remain iced up covered in snow prohibiting any fishing. I drove out to Medical Lake before work this morning and that lake is a no go along with most of the lakes around here. One of options you have is Rock Lake in Whitman County for rainbows, browns and steelhead. It may be awhile till you can get out on these lakes so put your vises away just yet.

Read the 2016-2017 Sport Fishing Regulations for lake specific rules. Fishing closures and openings happen constantly throughout the year. The Emergency Rules keep you up-to-date.
