Pass Lake in Skagit County
A five star fly fishing lake, if you can forgive the busy roadway that borders the east shore. Trophy sized (and smart) trout in this lake! Mike Pass Lake (98 acres): This lake 6 miles south of Anacortes has a public access and boat launch. This is a trophy fly-fishing-only lake with special regulations and limits. Species available include Atlantic salmon and rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Pass is usually excellent in early spring and late fall for fish up to 24 inches

Lone Lake in Island County
This lake has come to be my early spring lake. It warms fairly fast and can provide some good fishing at times. The wind can be a problem ... all » so be aware for the lunch-time blow. Lone Lake (92 acres): Occupying a broad meadow area 2 miles southwest of Langley on Whidbey Island, Lone has a large WDFW access on the north shore and is open year-around. Trout fishing can vary widely from year-to-year due to cormorant predation. Table quality of the trout is best in spring and fall when the water is cooler. Use large-fish methods here: salad shrimp bait, leech wet fly patterns, and large lures. Lone lake is now a year round lake and Selective fishery with a 1 fish (18") limit. Power bait, nightcrawlers, salmon eggs, marshmallows, cheese baits are all prohibited now and alerting the public to these facts could save some unsuspecting angler from a WDFW fine, not to mention helping to keep some of the quality fish in this fishery.

Rattlesnake in King County
Another five star selective fisheries lake. Beautiful views, great fishing, no gas motors. One of my favorite destinations. Rattlesnake Lake (50-100 acres): Rattlesnake is located close to Cedar Falls, south of North Bend (I-90 exit to 436th SE). Highly variable springs cause this unusual lake to fluctuate greatly in volume and surface area through the summer months. A park on the east shore has pit toilets and a primitive boat ramp. The lake is managed for rainbow trout, with fish to 15 inches taken. Selective fishery regulations are in effect, except electric motors are allowed.

Roesiger Lake in Snohomish County
Three for one deal on this lake. Lower lake connects into a shallow middle section and then into a larger, deeper north end. A nice country drive to get there. Very limited trailer parking. Lake Roesiger is 352 acres, developed shoreline. This lake is 11 miles north of Monroe off Woods Creek Road to the Roesinger entry road, left and then right to the boat ramp. The ramp is concrete and will take boats to 16 feet without difficulty except that the parking lot is small and can be hard to maneuver in. Parking is limited and street parking is also hard to come by on a busy day. The lake holds rainbows, silvers, and spiny rays including bass. The lake has three distinct areas with the center area being shallow and the northern part of the lake being the deepest, with depths to 115 feet. The shoreline is developed, however, the north part of the lake is quite nice with wooded Cascade foothills surrounding it. There is a county park on the lower third of the lake which has picnicking and an area to hand launch smaller boats. No water-skiing is allowed until after 10am.

Black Lake in Thurston County
Spent a pleasant day fishing with Bob Johansen on this nice lake. End of summer and lots of weeds, but we found some good water on the northwest side of the lake a caught a few bass. Good memories... ... (more) Black Lake (570 acres): This lake 4 miles southwest of Olympia is slow for 9- to 11-inch rainbows, better later in the summer for cutthroat, largemouth bass, perch and crappies, with a few brown bullheads available. There is a state access with boat launch and two toilets. Disabled accessibility - Level 2. WCT, Blk Tpa, lgs. Public access is on the S.E. shore off of Black Lake - Bellmore Rd. S.W.. It is at Kennydell County Park. Lake the Black Lake exit off of 101. At the bottom of the exit turn left, stay on main road until Black Lake - Belmore Rd. This road passes the north end of the lake. Traveling south on I-5, just south of Olympia, take the Black Lake-Trosper Road exit. (Exit #102) Turn west onto Black Lake-Trosper Road for 2.8 miles to Black Lake-Belmore Road. Turn left (south) onto Black Lake-Belmore Road for 1.0 mile to 66th Ave. S.W.. Turn right onto 66th Ave. S.W. for .7 mile to the WDFW Public access area. The last time I was there the access had two good concrete plank boat launching ramps, lots of parking space for tow rigs and trailers and a couple of older pit toilets. Good luck and don't forget to release most of your fish unharmed. A nice bass is too fine a resource to enjoy catching only once.

Lower Hampton Lake, Grant County
This video was shot in 2006. The Hampton lakes are part of the Seeps lake area, a large group of desert lakes south of Potholes reservoir. Very desolate looking county, but a popular destination area. Be sure to bring a map to these drive-in lakes. At one time the Hamptons were the hottest lakes in the Seep Lakes group. Traditionally the Hamptons were part of the March first opener. The State placed them on the April first opener for 2003. The largest fish have come from Upper Hampton, with the majority of the fish coming in from Lower. Upper is a walk in lake, about a half mile hike. Lower has a boat ramp suitable for shallow draft boats and a large parking lot. No camping or overnight parking is allowed. Power bait has been king on both of these lakes but I like to troll so I can release the smaller ones.

American Lake in Pierce County
Fishing buddy Bruce Middleton and I spent a nice spring day on this lake in 2006. American lake is firmly established as one of the greater Tacoma area's primary fishing lakes. Tough day for bass but a nice day on the water. This lake is 1125 acres, 8 miles SW of Tacoma. Take the Camp Murray-Madigan exit from Hwy 5 to one mile to lake. The lake holds rainbow, cutthroat, kokanee, perch, largemouth and rock bass, and bullhead. There are several boat launches on the lake, as well as a resort on the lake's east shore.
