Had a great time fishing with my son and niece. It has been well over 20 years since I have been to Crawfish. The beauty and the weather was amazing. At three years old this was my son's first time fishing for trout and he loved it. Each time we went out in the boat we caught 3-4 brookies and a couple rainbows. They averaged 12-14 inches. Crawlers and rooster tails worked great in the AM and crawlers in the evening. Nothing hit mid day. There may have been a total of 3-4 boats on the lake. Perfect for a quiet high mountain adventure especially when you live in Texas.

It had been about 15 years since I was up here. Took two boys and two nephews along with the wife. Had a great time fishing. Given the heat we kept our fishing adventures to the evening. Still fished with crawlers and did just fine. We all would have limited had the younger guys been able to set the hook. All in all it was a blast and everyone had a good time. Biggest was a 14" bow, with the next being a 11" brookie that was fat.

Thanks-to:: Smooth

We got up early. Better weather than Sunday at Summit (snow, rain, sleet, hail, wind. Typical Spring). We were surprised to find how much development is around the lake. After Summit, we expected to find a nice, cold, clean, mountain lake (hey, it's 4475 feet in elev.). Nope, it's a vacation/Summer home lake. Lots of buildings around. The locals can't fish though. We watched quite a few folks trolling and spinning. Nothing for them! We hooked and landed 30-40 fish each. Nice Brookies. All on brown Buggers or a Prince nymph. The Prince was unstoppable! My buddy had a Brown Bugger on and pulled in over 10 fish before I could tie one on. His worked better and I trailed a Prince to see if I could even the odds. They ignored the bugger and only hit the nymph as the morning progressed. We broke for lunch (yummmmm....brookies in the fry pan. Don't yell at me, they're planted AND non-native) and went back out for another dozen or more fish before we had to go home. Good fishing if you like looking in folks backyards all day.

Water temperature 60 degrees. Saturday was overcast and rainy most of the day. All days were windy. Sunday was a mix of sun and clouds, and Monday was sunny most of the day. Throat samples showed the trout were feeding almost exclusively on chironomids (size 16), although small (2mm) snails, and one beetle were also found. Regardless, the fish fed opportunistically, not refusing damsel and leech imitations (size 10-12). In a few days dozens of pan-size (8-13 inches) fish were caught and released, with many missed strikes in between. The USFS campsites are marked, have fire pits, and host outhouses.

I love to take trips to Eastern Washington to explore new lakes. I Pulled into a little store just outside Omak for a soda. I took my dogs and asked the person at the register if there are any good lakes around that I could let my dogs off leash while I fished. She told me to go up to Crawfish, thinking of my dogs, I took her advise and I am very glade I did. Casting roostertails - any kind of roostertails I hooked up about every third cast. I have done a lot of tuna fishing in the past and had to laugh around dusk, every single cast I had a hookup, it was like being on a mini tuna bite. Mostly Brooks in the small to mid size range, if you don't mind the size the lake is a blast.
