On Lake Washington, for example, 256 houses were tallied this year. That compares with only 54 houses in 2012 and 170 in 2011.

On Madison Lake, 60 houses were tallied this winter, compared to 28 last year and 39 in 2011.

Last year, bait and tackle shops were pretty lonely places.

This year, bait sales started early and continue to be brisk. At White’s Corner in Madison Lake, Ryan White said business has been good.

“I’d say it’s up at least three-fold from last winter,” he said between customers last week.
