Lake Washington?

Post by bkinney » Mon May 02, 2016 12:50 pm

I just saw that WA just closed Lake Washington and other lakes to "all fishing" until further notice.

Being new to the area - Does this happen often?

it is a catastrophe of epic proportions for those of us who live near lake Washington and like to fish there for trout, perch, catfish, bass, etc.

I've been telling my nearly 5 y/o grandson that we will go out in the boat and fish Lake Wa for Perch. He's never been out in my boat or fished for Perch. So much for that. I only live two miles from the Kenmore ramp.

I'm confused, see conflicting information on the WDFW site and when I checked the emergency rules section Lake WA, Lake Sammamish and a few rivers did not have a closure listed? I thought that emergency rule section was where it became official not releases.

Releases are just notification of emergency closures. It should be there
and it isn't there. Interesting
Look for Wannafish A Lure on FaceBook
He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.
