Annual PSFF Rendevous



Yakima River: Big Pines Camground


This should be early enough for both walk and wade fishing, or floating the river before the "flip"



The Fly Fishing show at Meydenbauer Center,

Bellevue, WA



Mayfield Lake

Ike Kinswa State park

Lewis County


This reservoir is managed for catchable rainbow trout and warmwater species. Tiger muskies were introduced in 1993 to help in controlling nuisance northern pikeminnow (squawfish) populations.


Yellow perch are also caught in fair numbers, and a few largemouth bass are present. Boating access is available at a Lewis County park just off of Highway US-12, at Ike Kinswa State Park.

N@ Fly-Tyer & Fishing Expo

Linn County Fairgrounds,

Albany, OR


Lenice Lake

Grant County

Lenice Lake is located north of Mattawa.  This lake is very productive, grows large trout, and is very popular with fly fishers.  Lenice Lake on average has been one of the better quality waters in District 5 (Grant and Adams Counties).  During certain times of the year Lenice Lake can have very high angler effort.  Several fly fishing clubs from across the State hold annual outings at Lenice Lake.

Beaver Lake


King County


Fishing typically occurs in the larger lake that is more accessible. Stocked Rainbow Trout are primary targets here along with Yellow Perch exceeding 8 inches long and quality-size Largemouth Bass. Though there are three waters connected by small waterways, access to the smaller lakes is limited. The largest of the three has a WDFW public access with ramp and toilets located near the southeast corner. The lake can also be accessed via Beaver Lake Park managed by the City of Sammamish.

Cowlitz River

Cowlitz County


Hosted at John & Kjathy Clark, near Toledo


From Barrier Dam and downstream, the Cowlitz offers opportunities for Steelhead, Salmon and feisty hatchery cutthroat trout. ​



Lake Kokanee

Mason County

Kokanee Lake is sometimes called Lower Cushman Lake. It is open to fishing year-round. The lake is stocked in March, May, July and September with larger catchable-size (11"-13") rainbow trout and again in the fall with good numbers of larger rainbow trout to provide a fishery through the winter. The lake is fishable by boat with limited shore access.  Trout tend to school near the access immediately after the plants.

2024 Outings Spotlight


I always look forward to putting together PSFF’s Outings calendar. It’s not quite the same as the anticipation felt before a day of fishing, but there’s something very rewarding about looking ahead at a fresh calendar. It’s a feeling of spiritual renewal, that all things are possible in a new year. 


A little humility helps. Planning without the aid of a crystal ball is fraught with unknowns. It can be dizzying trying to balance unpredictable weather conditions against the seasonal proclivities of fish and — more importantly — all the cool suggestions gleaned from club members. 


I’ve learned a lot during my previous two years in the job. More and more folks are asking for mid-week events. I listened. And I’ll watch the weather patterns in January and February and announce FLASH! outings whenever possible, so stay tuned to your bat radios. 


Personally, I’m looking forward to a couple of important indoor events. The first is The Fly-Fishing Show in Bellevue, Feb. 17-18. Lots of vendors, speakers and classes, and a film festival — a real cornucopia of fly-fishing. Adult tickets are $20 ($35 for both days; separate tickets to the Saturday night International Fly-Fishing Film Festival are $20, $15 advance). More info at 


For March 8-9, grab a buddy and head south to the Northwest Fly-Tyer & Fishing Expo in Albany, Oregon. Last year was the first time I attended and was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had at this sprawling two-day event, sponsored by the Oregon Council of Fly Fishers International. More detailed information is forthcoming at 


Our calendar for April has the boldest change on the new schedule. After several years of declining reviews at Sun Village Resort, the location and date of our much-loved annual rendezvous has been reconsidered. We are putting Park Lake, et al. in the rear-view mirror for awhile. Instead, we’re going closer to home to one of our favorite destinations — Yakima River. No reservations needed (or possible) for our dates. We’ll be camping at the BLM’s Big Pines Campground, unless you choose to camp at the increasingly expensive KOA in town, or at a motel or Airbnb. As always, more info to come.


Also of note is our trip to the Cowlitz River in September. Long-time club members John and Cathy Clark have been able to open up their gorgeous property again for club camping. It’s quite a spread and really something special for our outing. Thanks, John and Cathy, for your very generous offer to host.


I strongly urge you to make reservations for overnight accommodations if you’re planning to attend The Fly-Fishing Show in Bellevue for more than a day, the Albany event, Mayfield Lake, Leech Lake or Pass Lake. Lodging near the Bellevue show and in Albany tend to fill fast, as do the state parks. You can book Ike Kinswa State Park now (they even have some nice cabins). Condos at White Pass Village Inn (Leech Lake) start taking reservations on Jan. 3 for our dates.To book a campsite at Deception Pass State Park, get online starting a 7 a.m. Jan. 15. I’ve already marked my calendar to remind myself.

Outings Director
