FISHING — Eleven-year-old Cameron Earnshaw of Kennewick caught the first fish of the season off the docks at Fishtrap Lake Resort on Saturday — two minutes after the season opened at midnight.

Much more fun followed for the large family groups gathered for the annual tradition of fishing on opening day of Washington's lowland lake trout season.
