    Try Cranberry lake up on the island. To get there you go by Pass lake. There's Browns in there also

    I pulled a 17 or 18 incher out of Green Lake in Seattle several years ago. It was mid-February, got it on a muddler near shore.

    At the time (with only a couple years of fly fishing) it was the biggest fish I'd ever got on a fly rod.

    They are really careful about where browns get planted since they are voracious fish eaters and if they took hold they could do a lot of damage to salmon and steelhead runs. There are some rivers over here that have what looks like amazing brown habitat. Too bad, but very necessary.

    I have not had leave in 2 years i dont think my wife would be too happy if the only leave i got in 2 years involved a multi day fishing trip to Montana lol. I will keep montana in mind though i think i have some family somewhere around there.
