If you are trolling lakes for trout, the number one fly is an olive body wooly worm with black tail and hackle. Start with a size 8. It can be trolled with a spinning rod or fly rod. Start without weight other than chain swivel, then add a 1/8 oz. split shot at a time just below a small chain swivel using 30 inch leader. looking for what depth the fish are at. If you are on a kokanee lake, use a 3 way swivel then 20 inches down use a 4 inch dodger with an orange gods tooth 20 inches down from the dodger. Put two pieces of red corn on an orange "gods tooth" spoon. On the third leg of the swivel, tie an 8 inch piece of mono with a snap pin on the end. you can then add any size weight to the snap pin to work your way into the depths. At canoeing speed, I start with a 1/4 oz weight when I see fish breaking the surface. (mostly spring and summer. In the winter (now) I would likely go uo to 1 or 1.5 Oz. Weight. When just paddling around a new lake, I usually just tie on a size 70 hot shot in rainbow trout color. If no luck I might ad a split shot or two 20 or more inches above the lure. An in line small chain swivel never hurts. If I am going to cast to the banks and weed beds, I use a water weighted float with a 1/8 oz. jig and yellow/chartreuse and white/pearl tube. Cast, let sit then reel in ultra slow. Change depth from 2 feet down to six feet until you hit fish, I believe I have caught nearly ever type of fresh water fish that swims west of the mountains(bull head and kokanee excepted) using that jig set up. Good luck.

There are alot of fishing opportunities in the Granite Falls and surrounding areas, this is my backyard as I live 10 miles west of you in Lake Stevens.In fact lake stevens has bass trout,kokanee, perch and crappie.Theres a few high mountain lakes accessible by car with some requiring short to moderate walk. Stilliguamish and Pilchuck rivers are both very close to you but typically are selective gear rules(single barbless hook,lures,no bait)Your best bet would be Google Maps or go to the Granite Falls Hardware and see if they have a map of trails for hiking in the area,most of the hiking trails here go to lakes or alongside rivers.Who knows,we may even run into each other sometime since I go into Granite Falls almost daily.Dark blue Silverado -Z-71 Canopy,lumber rack,black rims,lifted a little black steel front bumper with winch.I could point out all kinds of spots to fish.

Nancy; stop a sports store and pick you up Washington state fishing regulations book and read thru it. It will give you updated rules and regulations and it has a lot of lakes and rivers in and around Washington it also points out what kind of fish are in that body of water when you decide to fish a certain area google map and find your boat launches and zoom down on the water and as for gear same gear you used in California will work here too.
