Lowland lake trout season is here, and state wildlife staff have stocked tens of thousands of fish in Lewis County lakes.
And the season is even better this year, as the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has released hundreds of tagged fish for their 2017 Fishing Derby, which is free to anyone with a valid fishing license from April 22 to September.
Seven lakes across Lewis County are part of the derby this year; click or tap on their names below for more information and a map to each.
According to WDFW, the agency is awarding more than $20,000 in prizes from more than 130 dealers across the state!
Remember that you need an active fishing license to fish Washington lakes, and you’ll need a WDFW Vehicle Access Pass to park at a WDFW-managed Water Access Site.
