My notes show that this trip went well for this Pass Lake fisherman, whose stand-up technique brought in at least one catch.

Cast away!

Two young fishermen invest time in a “sport” that dates back thousands of years, casting their lines with eager anticipation. Cranberry Lake, Deception Pass State Park on a sunny Fall weekend.

Folks celebrate clean air

What a wonderful Saturday morning, our air fresh again after a week of smoke from regional wildfires. Frustrated folks like me ventured out to hike, kayak, climb, swim, boat and fish. I saw families, couples and fishermen. I saw excited children grab their floaties in anticipation of lake swimming. I watched at least one child […]

Fishing a new spot

Every fisherman moves to a new spot when the action is slow. This blue heron works the rocks on low tide at Rosario Beach, “flying” a few feet from time to time across the water. Fishing was good that morning!

Lines in the water, Heart Lake

I enjoyed watching a few morning fishing teams Monday at Heart Lake. Lots of trout, I was told, due to pandemic restrictions and cancellations of events like the annual Kids Fishing Day. It brought a smile to my face to see a family in one boat, a father and son loading their rowboat into the […]

Cranberry Lake & environs

Typically Cranberry Lake at Deception Pass Park is crazy busy at this time of year. Given COVID-19 restrictions, however, most activity has taken place on weekends. Regardless, an early morning visit to this beautiful corner of our awesome neighborhood park yields greater opportunity for a peaceful walk. There is much to enjoy.

Beach, boat & bluff fishing

Fishermen are out. On a visit to Deception Pass Park I viewed folks fishing from North Beach, boat just offshore, and bluff from the base of Pass Island. Traveling in and out of the park I saw many folks fishing lakes including Cranberry, Heart, Campbell and Pass.

Fishing from North Beach

This Seattle man celebrated the re-opening of state parks and public fishing Tuesday morning by visiting North Beach at Deception Pass State Park. A fish would just be icing on the cake. It was a beautiful day, and exciting to have COVID-19 restrictions lifted to some degree. Bring on “Phase Two!”

Fishing the Skagit

Beautiful weather and the lure of salmon drew hundreds of fishermen to the Skagit River in recent days. This photograph was taken from Riverside Park in Mount Vernon. The pink salmon run is bringing an estimated six million salmon into the Puget Sound rivers, with about 1.2 million of those headed up the Skagit. Beaches […]

Relaxed Monday

The often bustling Heart Lake shoreline was quiet Monday, affording this fisherman the opportunity to spend a relaxing afternoon with few “neighbors” to distract him.

Thank you for visiting
