Outbuy: One of Washington’s oldest sport fishing resorts – Olson’s Resort in Sekiu, operated by Arlen and Donnalynn Olson – was sold last week with an agreement the new buyers keep it operating pretty much the way it has for nearly eight decades, the Seattle Times reported. The family-owned resort on the western edge of the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Clallam County opened in 1936. It was for sale since 2004.
The Colville Indian Reservation may be the best fishing destination in the state where most Washington anglers have never wet a line. Scattered about the million-acre reservation, two dozen of about 35 fishable lakes are open to non-tribal anglers. A few of them range from good to outstanding. All of them are crowd-free.
The fourth Saturday of April rivals any major holiday for Washington’s angling families. From across the state they rendezvous at designated lakes in advance, claiming campsites, often unleashing kids in the build-up to a weekend experience passed down through generations.
Northeastern Washington has a wealth of family resorts that cater to anglers – including those who need a rental boat. Area lakes with resorts that have been renting small fishing boats include: Clear Lake: Sun Cove Resort (formerly Dan’s Landing), (509) 299-3717; Mallard Bay Resort, (509) 299-3830.
The Spokane region is a hotbed for rental fishing boats, relatively speaking. Anglers heading out Saturday for the opening of Washington’s lowland lake trout fishing season can choose from two dozen resorts that rent boats at 16 different fishing lakes in northeastern Washington.

Night owls made the first casts at 12:01 a.m. Saturday to ring in the opening of Washington’s lowland fishing season. Docks at Fishtrap and other popular camping-fishing lakes were lined with anglers all night long despite temperatures in the 30s. Content to be a mere early bird, Lindsay Lundquist arrived shortly after 5 a.m. on the shore of West Medical Lake, where she caught a nice rainbow trout on her first cast.
Opening day of fishing season isn’t what it used to be. The crowds have declined – a blessing in many ways – partly because most of the region’s waters have evolved to being open to fishing year-round. But the few hatchery-stocked lakes that open Saturday are managed specifically for trout fishing, and they have a faithful clientele.
