‘Uncle Wes’ Talks Trout At Seminar

Nine hundred and two miles, nine lakes and 133 fish later “Uncle Wes” Malmberg and his brother Brett called it a day, taking this past Monday off.

In a marathon week of trout fishing, they hit waters everywhere from just behind the dunes on the Pacific to just behind the dunes on Whidbey Island to just under the Doug firs at the southern end of Hood Canal.

At least one of those lakes earned the nickname “‘Crapberry” for the thick, green algae that stained the rims of their trailer and poor fishing had by the duo. The rain gear of their faithful fish hound Hercules also got soaked in Mason County.

But it was in good ol’ Mason County that they found the best fishing, including 48- and 40-fish days at Island and Lost Lakes, respectively, Wes says.

Neither lake is too far from the Sage Bookstore in Shelton, where Wes will give a talk on “blue collar fly fishing” the evening of Tuesday, October 19.

It will entail year-round trout fishing, what works best for Malmberg (whose mug or his brother’s appears almost monthly with fat trout or a hefty stringer of rainbows) and more.

The bookstore has limited seating, so it is suggested you call ahead. The talk runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

There will be giveaways, including items from Verle’s, Bayshore Grocery, Northwest Sportsman and the bookstore.

Sage is located at 116 W Railroad Ave No. 102. Their phone number is (360) 426-6011.
