FISHING — Some anglers know they don't have to wait for the “opening day” at many of the region's lowland trout lakes.

Sprague Lake is one of many lakes open for fishing year round. You'll travel a long way to find fish that are any more robhust.

Tom Shellenberger, Mike Barnett, and Mike Shellenberger, pictured above, trolled plugs on Sunday for a nice stringer of fat rainbows running 18-20 inches. 

“It's going to be anothe great season,” said Scott Haugen, operator of Four Seasons Campground, which opened  for customers last week on Sprague's northwest shore.
