Conditions : Lake Washington: Fishing is usually slow during winter but starts to pick back up late winter and early spring. With the mild winter we have had, more anglers have been out on the lake. However, with the weather we have been having in the past week, there have not been many reports of anglers fishing. With the upcoming great days of weather, there are expectations of more anglers going out to the lake and anglers catching more fish.

Crappie fishing is usually slow during winter but picks back up quickly in late winter and early spring. There are reports of anglers catching crappie while trolling. These fish are being caught with jigs, minnows, or crankbaits in deeper areas of the lake. While out doing some sampling, there were some fish starting to move into the shallow waters. More than likely these are male fish starting to make their beds. See lake depth map below for depths in different area of the lake, and talk with bait shop owners for up to date info.

Catfish For catfish, yo-yos fished in the cypress swamps baited with stink bait or nightcrawlers are always a great bet. Or try tightlining with worms or liver in 2 - 4 feet of water near the shoreline. There are lots of 1 - 3 pound channel catfish in the lake, and every so often you'll pick up a bigger one.

Bass For bass, look for fish in 4-6 feet of water around logs, cypress knees, or under the fishing piers. Jigs or soft plastics may work well, or try throwing a spinnerbait along the edge of the cypress trees on the western shoreline.

Bream There are also some reports of anglers catching bream. For the most part these fish are being caught on the southern end of the lake. While doing some sampling on the lake this week, it was noticed that a great number of bream are hanging around the tall grasses along the bank. For best results, try fishing in 4-6 ft of water using crickets or red worms near the cypress trees on the western bank. Or try targeting brush piles near the fishing piers along the eastern shoreline.
