The date for the Rattlesnake Lake Outing has been set for Tuesday, June 26. We’ll be meeting up at 6pm in place of the monthly meeting which has been cancelled for the month of June. It is one of the longest days of the year, so it’ll be a good day for fishing and barbequing. Hope to see you there.
The address to Rattlesnake Lake is
19901 Cedar Falls Rd SE
North Bend, WA
The closest fly shop I’ve been able to find near the area is in Issaquah at the Creekside Angling Co. In case anyone is interested, this is the address:
1180 NW Gilman Blvd
phone: (425) 392 – 3800
This lake is best fished from a floating device, although the lake edge is accessible from most of it’s perimeter. Green wooley buggers, Hale Bopp, and similar flies trolled work well. When a hatch goes off, dry flies near the rocks do well. There are some large (20″ +) triploids in this lake. Catch and release.
