Sprague trout, bass bending rods as free fishing day looms


FISHING -- Reports of good catches of largemouth bass at Sprague Lake keep coming in, and some lunker rainbows also are showing to provide incentive for the June 8 Sprague Lake Trout Derby.

The photos posted here from Four Seasons Campground and Resort show a 5.3-pound rainbow caught off the resort dock and a 5.8-pound largemouth caught with a Rapala cast to shore from a boat over the holiday weekend.

Remember, the June 8 Sprague Lake derby falls on Free Fishing Weekend in Washington: No fishing licenses required.

Idaho has a single Free Fishing Day set for June 8.

Montana's Free Fishing Weekend is set for June 15-15, including Father's Day.
