Fishtrap Lake Rainbows
Ladin and Steve are in Washington State and fishing on Fishtrap Lake in Spokane County. The lake is 200 acres, deep and narrow and well stocked each year with Rainbow Trout fry which keeps the overall population at a healthy level for the visiting angler. They are fishing in small boats with electric motors and Steve is the first to strike landing a small Rainbow on a Leech pattern. He switches to a Chironomid pattern under an indicator with immediate success landing another 10 incher. Ladin spots a fish rising in a bay and heads over to cover it, The fish take his Chironomid pattern and he has a good fish on this time. A long battle ensues before Ladin finally nets a big and beautifully marked Rainbow Trout. As they head back to the lodge they notice a small waterfall and decide to have a cast. Steve trolls the area with a Black Woolly Bugger and hooks a lovely 3-4lb Rainbow Trout. In the second part of the show, they head to Clear Lake in Washington and enjoy some more fantastic sport with Rainbows.
