Anglers: it’s prime time for Liberty Lake browns

FISHING – Liberty Lake, one of the select lakes in Eastern Washington that opens for fishing today, is known for providing a special opportunity in the first weeks of the season.

Brown trout that hunker in deep water most of the year move into the shallows for warmer water and feed. This weekend's cold snap may be setting things back, but this is one of the best times of the year to catch them.
