A snapshot of opening day fishing

The opening day of Washington's lowland trout fishing season is a timeless tradition for many Inland Northwest families. The fishing action and camaraderie that lures anglers to area lakes on the fourth Saturday in April is the common denominator year after year. Outdoors editor Rich Landers has been covering opening day for more than 35 years. His photos from a recent season opener at Spokane area lakes captures the essence of the day.
