Conditions : Lake Washington: Bass fishing has been slower during the summer heat. Anglers are still catching bass if you have the patience. Look for bass in water 6-12 feet deep, especially around structure. Try around the cypress trees on the west side of the lake, or target the docks on the eastern shoreline. Use soft plastic worms or lizards, jigs, or spinnerbaits. Most bass from Washington are fat and healthy due to a large shad population in the lake.

Crappie fishing has slowed down some on the lake but anglers are still having success. Some anglers have been catching fish in between 4 to 6 feet of water. I expect this to get a little shallower as the weather continues to warm up. Minnows and jigs are the bait of choice for most anglers at Lake Washington. Stop by and talk with someone at the local bait shops for the most up to date information.

The bream activity in the lake has been pretty good lately. Many anglers have been reporting good success using crickets and targeting the cypress knees. For bream try using crickets or red worms around the grass beds near the shoreline or around the cypress knees in water between 4 and 6 feet deep.

There have not been any reports of anglers fishing for catfish at this time Catfish fishing is always pretty good at Lake Washington due to the large population of Channel Catfish in the lake. Lots of anglers like to fish yo-yo's in the cypress trees on the southern end of the lake. Try tightlining on the bottom with nightcrawlers, cut bait, or other catfish baits, or try fishing trotlines along the shallow flats. Channel catfish are the dominant catfish species in the lake, but flathead catfish are also present in the lake. Remember that yo-yo's must be tagged and attended at Lake Washington
