It's no secret the fishing is hot on Sprague. Tons of boats and even more shore fisherman. The wind got a little nasty for about an hour but otherwise not too bad. We ended with 11. 2 were about 12 inches which we released and the rest were 16 - 18. Nice healthy fish. Good fighters with quite a few of them jumping out of the water. Bob was our killer who not only caught his limit but were also the 5 biggest fish. He's not invited next time.

Three of us took to Sprague lake to test our skills. We heard of large bows and the bonus of steelhead. The East end healed the steelhead but they were small. 9 to 10 inches. We put in at 4 Seasons resort and had 2, rainbows 3 pound plus when we reached the East end and were catching the small steelhead. So we returned to the West end and completed the day with a total of 8 big rainbows and one German Brown, 14 inches long. That Brown sure surprised me since it has not been that long ago that they poisoned Sprague lake. The beautiful day was spent trolling pink or orange/tan Apex lures. The pink Apex even caught the Brown trout.

Good luck.

Went out on a windy Good Friday to try and get my first Largemouth Bass of 2015.
Heard and saw some great LMB action on Sprague last year so was excited to try
it myself. Took us a while to find some fish but when we did they were biting.

Fish were hanging out on the drop offs in about 10-15ft of water and chasing
baitfish. Had to get my DT12 out in Sexy Shad color and boom nailed this one
in the picture. Only 17.5 inches but weight 4lbs 14ozs. Had a HUGE belly!!

Had two more on but lost them both at the boat. Really nice fish both solid
over 3-4lbs. We had some trolling motor difficulty and had to leave after only
4 hours on the water. Too windy and not enough power in the trolling motor.

Water temps started about 49 and got up to 51 by noon.

Tight lines!

Took a friend out that's a cancer survivor to show him the trout on Sprague Lake. Started fishing around 8:00 am with rippin minnow and flies. The top water baits on leaded line produced immediately. only caught 3 steelhead and 5 rainbows with the biggest being 22" and weighing 3-1/2 lbs. Foggy early in the morning but the sun came out around 11:00 and the lake was like glass. This never happens on Sprague in the winter. Had to break some surface ice in one place and the rippen minnows were skating on top for 20 feet or so. Pulled the boat out at 2:00 and headed home. Thanks Tony for being here. Keep your lines tight and your hooks sharp.
Landshark out.

Took the kids out fishing today and got on the water about 1:00PM. Headed to the east end of the lake and within 5 minuites I got a 14 incher on a Mepps spinner. In all we caught 10 in about 3 hours. My 5 year old hooked a a really nice 18 inch bow on a worm and bobber but all of the others were caught on spinners. Can't ask for a better day than a day on the lake with the kids.

Long day, but a great fishing day with a pair of wise-cracking friends and co-workers. As I proceeded to miss bites; the pair caught three apiece of the large, mint bright Sprague Lake rainbows. The largest was a 22" ocean silver salmon-like fish, but the other five were in the 19"-19 1/2" range. In spite of my poor hook set timing, I even managed to hook one in a double header fish catching adventure with one of the other anglers. Weather was absolutely PERFECT with plenty of sunshine and very light winds.

Beautiful sunny, warm day at Sprague Lake. No big numbers of fish; in fact I had only one bite, but what made the day a "4+/Very Good Day Fishing" was the weather, the solitude and my wife catching a nice 18"+ football of a rainbow. The only negative was the grocery sack load of litter that I picked up from our fishing spot. Considering I picked up the same area less than one week ago of lazy slob mess….very disappointing. Please folks…There is no need to leave candy wrappers, empty corn cans, fishing line and other litter all over a fishing spot for others to pick up.

On the positive: sunny, virtually no wind, beautiful day with lots of waterfowl viewing; on the negative: NO BITES and NO FISH. On reflection, early Spring, Sprague Lake bank fishing can be a bit SLOW. On the somewhat amusing side: As my wife and I were about to quit for the day, a rather talkative fellow angler walked in and not only asked about our luck, but asked if he could make a cast to "straighten out his line"? Of course, his cast resulted in big "bird's nest" and still chattering away, he proceeds to strip off his line; which I put in my take away garbage bag. He then asks if he can use my wife's unoccupied fishing chair to "tie on another lure". As he lowers himself into the chair…"WOW, I could really get into this" (kind of fishing)…"I generally just fly fish or cast lures". All settled in my wife's chair, he continued to chatter away as my wife and I rolled our eyes and packed up to finally go and get him to give up the chair and move along. Although not heavy set, the guy reminded me of the John Candy character in the comedy movie classic, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles".

When i heard that Sprague lake was stocked with steelhead i had to go check it out for myself. i was on the water by 8:30 and had a fish on in 1 minute!!!!! i had my limit by noon. Bigest fish was 17 inches . as for equipment i was using a red and gold wedding ring 16" behind flashers. i was using leaded line 50' behind the boat.

I hope this helps -Josh.

Sprague has been pretty good these last few weeks. Largest today was 3 pounds 13 oz and 21 inches. Trolling small crankbaits at 1.6 to 2.0 mph on mono about 150 feet out. Fish have seemed to be concentrated and repeatedly going back over the same spots seemed to work well. Water temp about 41. bite was on between 12-3 then seemed to shut down.
