May 20, 2023 WFFC Spring Lake Hannon Outing
May 20 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT| Free – $40.00
This close in favorite is open to us and our friends Saturday only, at Lake Hannan on May 20th, from 8:00 to 4:00. This is the lake at Camp Hamilton north and east of the Duvall, Monroe, Carnation Hwy.
If you haven’t been there, it’s pretty easy. take the Woodinville/Duvall road to the end, turn north on the hwy. out of town, and go past the first cherry valley road, a couple miles, to the second cherry valley road that slants up hill on the right. Follow the road east toward Lake Fontal, a few miles, and watch for the sign to camp Hamilton. Go through a yellow gate, and follow to the launch area at Hannan. This is a private lake owned by the Catholic church, who have given us permission for a day of fishing. Please respect their strict NO ALCOHOL policy. The Club will provide beverages as in the past.
The fishing is pretty easy, with intermediate lines working small leech patterns being the go to. There is an on again off again mayfly hatch among some chironomids if the weather warms, and damsels in the shoreline weeds account for most of the brookies. The lake has a healthy population of native cutthroat, and some hybrid cutt-bows as a result of stocking over the years. This is a healthy, undeveloped, west side lowland lake. A rare treat for fly anglers.
Members, if you can take another member in your boat to fish on Lake Hannon, please acknowledge this in the “I will Assist With” sign-up, so that we can organize members to fish with you.
The outing is Free for WFFC Members and $40 fee for non-WFFC Members which can be applied towards becoming a annual member dues of $80.
