The daily catch limit for trout has increased to 10 fish on Scanewa Lake at Cowlitz Falls Reservoir until further notice.
The more liberal catch limit on stocked rainbow trout is to encourage late season fishing effort to increase the overall harvest rate.
Rainbow trout (with clipped adipose fins) are stocked annually in Lake Scanewa as part of Lewis County PUD’s federal license to operate Cowlitz Falls Dam.
An 8-inch minimum size limit remains in effect. In addition, anglers must release all cutthroat, and release rainbow trout except those having a clipped adipose fin and a healed scar at the location of the adipose clipped fin.
