Washington Trout - A Break for the Beardslee

The Beardslee Rainbow is a truly amazing example of what nature can do given a chance to do her magic. These lake rainbows grow to over 20 pounds with regularity, and in the most beautiful setting you could ever imagine - Lake Cresent on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. Recent evidence that populations are on the decline have prompted Washinton Trout to urge for angling closure. The regulations were modified to reduce harvest of these magnificent, slow-growing indigenous fish as a compromise.

If you've ever stopped in the Fairholm General Store and looked at the corkboard of polaroid photos of Beardslee trout, caught on chinook salmon sized Jplugs on downriggers in this 600 foot deep glacial jewel of a lake, you'd have an appreciation for just how unique these native rainbows are - but not in the sense of dead fish pictures. It was time that we adopted less exploitative ways to celebrate these incredible trout, or leave them be to regain their historic populations again. The new regulations support this need to care for this unique strain of giant rainbows.
