FISHING -- "There are plenty of 2- to 4-pound triploid rainbows to be caught in the lower end of Lake Rufus Woods," downstream from Grand Coulee Dam, says Anton Jones of Darrell & Dad's Family Guide Service.

"We did not get a trolling bite to kick in (this week), but once anchored up we were able to catch fish casting flies and slip-sinkering bait," he said. 

"Find places from Brandt’s landing and down where you are seeing plenty of activity on the surface and work those fish.  Pautzke’s Fire Bait is a good choice for slip sinkering.  Try casting a Mack’s Lures “Smile Blade Fly” to get those fish on artificials.  A hand twist retrieve worked best."
