FISHING -- Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife fish hatchery crews will be stocking 10,000 triploid rainbow trout in 20 lakes just before Father’s Day weekend, June 15-16.
“This is the second straight year we’ve stocked trout before Father’s Day, and this year we’ve doubled the number of fish and added six more lakes to the list,” said Chris Donley, WDFW Inland Fish Program manager.
Selected lakes in this region to be planted with the bright 1.5-pound trout include:
- West Medical in Spokane County, 1,250 triploids.
- Williams Lake in Spokane County, 400 triploids.
- Diamond Lake in Pend Oreille County, 600 triploids.
- Park lake in Grant County, 400 triploids.
- Alta Lake in Okanogan County, 350 triploids.
- Conconully Reservoir in Okanogan County, 750 triploids.
Of course, previously stocke fish will be providing good fishing in other lakes. The triploids simply boost the excitement at the chosen lakes.
Fishing licenses can be purchased online.
