2018 Fishing Guide

22 OkanoganCountry.com 888.431.3080 SPECTACLE LAKE » LOOMIS My grandparents loved to visit Spectacle Lake and grandpar- ents still take their grandkids here to have fun fishing. It is pri- marily known for consistently good trout fishing. Expect Rain- bow of 10 to 12 inches, with good numbers of carryover trout to 15 inches when you try Spectacle Lake. It is a long narrow lake, and in the shallows you can treat yourself to fast-action fishing for Largemouth Bass that are typically small but really fun to catch. There are good numbers of big Bluegill (6 to 8 inches) and small Yellow Perch in Spectacle as well as Kokanee that were planted in 2015. Kokanee are most often caught on Kokanee Killers, Needlefish, or Rooster Tails tipped with white shoepeg corn. The occasional Brown Trout is also caught on the lake. There are two WDFW launch sites on the lake and two resorts that offer full services. Spectacle Lake is located seven miles northwest of Tonasket on the Loomis-Oroville Road. WANNACUT LAKE » OROVILLE If you like trolling for Rainbow Trout in the summer months, Wannacut Lake is a great choice. The lake is deep, so the trout keep their firm condition through the warmer months. The Rainbow range in size from 10 to 12 inches and carryovers run to 14 inches and longer. There is limit- ed shore access, so it is an ideal place to take your boat, float tube, or pontoon boat. There is a WDFW access on the lake and a resort that offers camping, cabins and a boat launch. Wannacut Lake is just four miles southwest of Oroville on Wannacut Lake Road. NORTH OKANOGAN 313 ACRES 428 ACRES APR–SEPT APR–OCT
