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.
