January Fish-in

I need to come with a lake by Saturday Dec. 4 for January's fish-in. Washington and Sammamish seem to be the popular winter lakes. This is fine by me, but I'm curious if there are others that some of you would enjoy this time of the year. We need to ensure they are open in this season though. There are several lakes in the Olympia area that I personally haven't been to. Goodwin and Big Lake up north have been alright in the cold for me, and I thought I heard of Spanaway Lake yeilding some nice fish in winter. I was looking at Sammamish again because it gave up some fish a few months ago. Let me know what you think. I'm hoping we can get on some largemouth to go with the new Ironman theme.

Rob.....I would say Washington and Sammamish are good choices in themselves as they both have largemouth, they are both pretty close for the majority in the event of nasty weather..(ie: bail out factor) and also both have a diversion as they both have hefty Perch populations to keep the sensory skills sharp.

oh and the freezer full!

Rob,

Take a look at Tanwax, great LM lake lots of docks, wood,grass in here. Largies run 2-4lb average. And not that far to go to.

Tanwax isnt a year round fishery. Not to be rude or anything, but it really doesn't have all that many docks; however, it does have lots of wood and brushpiles. My biggest largie of the year this year came from this lake on opening day in April.
tight lines......

Thats why I was thinking of Sammamish again Larry. It is a good lake in these months with a great "bail out" factor. I just didn't want people to get burned out of the same lakes through the winter. They are good winter lakes though. I am leaning towards Sammamish, unless somebody can change my mind.

January 15th on Sammamish looks like the fish-in date and lake unless there are numerous complaints.

Regarding Sammamish, are the docks at the launch under water yet? I always thought that was a PITB, especially if covered with goose crap...gives "slippery when wet" a whole new meaning. No, not me, but I  think another member did a "C&B" on one of them.  Lips Sealed

God willin' and the creek don't rise I will be there.  But since my boat is in storage for the winter I will be looking for a back seat.

Are we meeting for breakfast, what time, where?  These are all questions that JIM would have had answered.  Sometimes they weren't right but he always had answers.  HEHE

Hold your horses there yahoo (Rich)!!  Smiley I'm pretty sure breakfast will always be an option for a fish-in or freeze-in. I wanted to get the lake straight first before I started setting anything in stone. Now I can say when and where and thats final, but I would rather have some input to try and accomadate as many as possible. I  would say breakfast would be at the closest vicinity to whatever lake we fish and would be about an hour or hour and a half before the launch time. I'm thinking meeting at the launch at 0800 during the cold months is early enough. Am I right?
