Here are the latest trout plants by state Fish and Wildlife into local year-round lakes to boost fishing in the days ahead.
“Our stocking in open lakes has been going pretty well, and we finally got Beaver Lake stocked as well as some other lakes,” said Justin Spinelli, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist.
King County: Beaver Lake, 6,761 trout on April 5; Green Lake, 4,359 on April 10; Lake Desire, 4,000 on April 10; and North Lake, 6,132 on April 10.
Island County: Lone Lake, 3,002 trout on April 11.
Pierce County: Lake Kapowsin, 2,802 on April 11.
For more statewide plants go to the state Fish and Wildlife website. Spinelli says the website plants are usually updated every Thursday or Friday.
Note before you go to a lake:
Be sure to check the regulation pamphlet as not all the lakes being planted are open year-round, and you can’t fish some until the traditional lowland lakes statewide opener on April 28.
