Morton Lake gets a plant of jumbo-sized rainbow trout
While many are seeking out salmon in marine waters there is one spot on south King County that will offer some decent early fall trout fishing.
Morton Lake, which covers 66-acres near Covington, is being planted Thursday, Sept. 19 with 1,000 jumbo rainbow trout averaging 2 pounds apiece.
There is a state Fish and Wildlife fishing access and ramp on the northwest shoreline.
“Fishing should be pretty good in a lake that small and with all those fish being planted,” said Danny Garrett, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist.
