posted in: regional | 0

Washington States’ Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) recently announced that the agency has completed stocking most of 33 Western Washington lakes scheduled to receive a total of 75,000 large rainbow trout.

“Most of the trout stretch 12 to 17 inches, but some tip the scales at 5 or 6 pounds,” According to Chris Donley, WDFW’s inland fish program manager. “These are very nice trout, and they’re ready to be caught now.”

Updated stocking information for Washington lakes is available on the department’s weekly catchable trout stocking report at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/plants/weekly/.
