Seattle residents Don and Preston spent a few hours on Pass Lake Saturday. The drop a line in this catch-and-release lake about four times a year. No luck with fish today, but time spent fishing with a friend is always time well spent.

Pass Lake action

Hearty fishermen such as these aren’t likely to let a small thing like April 1 hail get in the way of a Sunday afternoon adventure on Pass Lake. Numbers will build now as winter gives way to spring on this beautiful lake on the edge of State Route 20.
