More trout plants this past week should increase action in west side lakes

TroutPlant_mh81346Many local lakes continue to receive big plants of trout to boost fall and winter fishing.

Lakes planted from Nov. 3-5 in King County are Angle with 4,500; Deep, 2,800; Fish, 2,135; Green, 12,300; Langlois, 3,200; Fenwick, 2,200; and Rattlesnake, 1,375.

Also Tye in Snohmish County got 2,000 trout; St. Clair in Thurston County, 6,390; and Cranberry in Island County, 2,185.

This is part of more than 340,000 that have been planted in west side since early last month with more plants occurring in the weeks ahead.

Beaver Lake near Issaquah was planted last week with 2,400 trout averaging about three pounds apiece, and the daily limit is five fish, but only two can exceed 15 inches in length.
