"OLYMPIA - Anglers will soon have an opportunity to catch lunker trout in Beaver Lake near Issaquah, thanks to the release of about 1,800 hatchery rainbows weighing between 3 to 5 pounds each.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is scheduled to release the fish during the week of Nov. 3. The trout were part of an educational display at WDFW’s Issaquah Hatchery.
Beaver Lake is best fished by small boat, although anglers also can be successful fishing from shore, said Chad Jackson, inland fish biologist for WDFW.
The lake’s access site is most easily reached by way of East Beaver Lake Drive Southeast, off Southeast 24th Street in the city of Sammamish. Parking for vehicles and boat trailers is limited, and a valid WDFW vehicle access permit must be easily visible in or on vehicles parked at the access site. See http://wdfw.wa.gov/wlm/vup/ for more information about vehicle access permits.

Beaver Lake is one of several westside lowland lakes open to fishing year-round. Internal combustion boat engines are prohibited on the lake. All anglers 15 years of age and older are required to have a valid fishing license. The daily bag limit is five fish, and bait anglers must keep the first five trout they catch."

Well 1800 is still a good amount, but last year there were 3000, I guess I won't be waiting until Thanksgiving to go this time, or maybe a couple times wink:

What are you guys doing to catch them? Plunking powerbait or trolling spoons? I have been skunked the last few times out there :-( Thanks for any help!
