A nice chunk of jumbo trout plants are happening in the coming days at some Jefferson, Mason and Kitsap county lakes to kick-start fishing this fall and winter.

State Fish and Wildlife and Trout Lodge hatchery crews are planting a total of 25,400 rainbow trout — each weighing nearly one pound — into Gibbs, Leland, and Teal lakes in Jefferson County; Island, Kokanee, Lost, Nahwatzel, Spencer and Trails End lakes in Mason County; and Island and Kitsap lakes in Kitsap County.

All the year-round lakes are expected to planted by early next week. The trout were raised at state Fish and Wildlife’s Eells Springs Hatchery near Shelton, Satsop Springs Hatchery near Elma, and Trout Lodge hatcheries near Tumwater.
