Trout action galore especially in Southwest Washington lakes

Maple Valley Trout DerbyTrout anglers looking for some freshly planted trout should head to Southwest Washington where a half dozen lakes are now teeming with fish.

Between Jan. 6-7, state Fish and Wildlife planted thousands of trout to boost winter action in Clark, Lewis and Klickitat counties.

Battleground Lake in Clark County got 1,500 trout on Jan. 5; Fort Borst Park Pond in Lewis County received 1,500 trout on Jan. 7; Klineline Pond in Clark County got 1,360 on Jan. 5; Maryhill Pond in Klickitat County got 500 trout on Jan. 6; Rowland Lake in Klickitat County received 3,000 trout on Jan. 6; and Spearfish Lake in Klickitat County got 2,000 on Jan. 6.

Locally, places to go for planted trout are American, Goodwin and Rowland lakes.

Other noteworthy spots are Green, Angle, Deep and Beaver in King County; Lone and Cranberry in Island; Spencer in Mason.

East of the Cascades, Rufus Woods Reservoir and Lake Roosevelt are decent for trout.
