Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Washington: Water levels are still pretty low at Washington but the recent rains have definitely helped fill it back up. The weather is beautiful and the fish should be biting really well the rest of this week!

For crappie, try trolling toward the north and middle of the lake in around 6-12 ft of water. Using jigs or minnows is most productive, but pulling crankbaits can also work well too.

For bream, try fishing in 3 - 4 ft of water using crickets near the cypress trees on the western bank. Or try targeting brush piles near the fishing piers along the eastern shoreline.

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.

For bass, try using crankbaits or soft plastic worms or lizards around cypress knees or the fishing piers in water 2 - 4 feet deep. A spinnerbait or other shad imitation bait may also work well. There's lots of bass in the lake, but sometimes they can be finicky and tough to catch.

Yo-Yo Requirements All yo-yo's must have a waterproof or metal tag attached and visible above the water surface. The tags must contain the angler's full name and address. Yo-yo's must be attended on Lake Washington. Attended means devices must remain within sight of the angler during daylight hours.

Misc Info: -

Anglers please note that on Lake Washington the limit on crappie is 30 but only 5 crapie can be kept that are under 10 inches in length, the limit on bream is 100, and the limit on bass is 5, but only 2 bass can be less than 15 inches in length. Last fall the size of many of the crappie were slightly under 10 inches.

- Regulations concerning fishing of YO-YO'S - Over the last several years the MDWFP received many letters from residents and nonresidents about yo-yo's and limb lines at Lake Washington. Most of the people complained that too much gear was being left in the water tied to trees, hindering access to their fishing spots. Other letters listed complaints that people were fishing more than the legal limit of yo-yo's; that some people were exceeding the legal daily and possession creel limits; that people were seeing many dead fish out of the water captured by yo-yo's; that some anglers were running other people lines and that some anglers were discourteous. To enhance enforcement efforts fishing regulations (Public Notice 3428) were changed to require yo-yo's on Lake Washington to be tagged and attended during daylight hours.

Yo-Yo Tagging Requirements - Yo-Yo's must have a waterproof or metal tag attached to the line above the water surface. The tags shall be furnished by the angler and must contain all of the following information: the angler's full name, full residence address including zip code of the angler. This information must be legibly written with waterproof ink, legibly inscribed or legibly stamped on the tag. Yo-Yo Attendance Requirements: Yo-yo's must be attended on Lake Washington. Attended means devices must remain within sight of the angler during daylight hours.
