FISHING -- For the fourth year, hatchery crews will be stocking 10,000 large rainbow trout in 20 lakes just before Father’s Day weekend, June 20 and 21, the the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says.
Two of the lakes are near Spokane.
All of the lakes that will be stocked with those larger—15-to-17 inch—fish before Father’s Day have good shore and boat access.
Eastern Washington lakes to be stocked, and the number of fish, are as follows:
- Spokane County: West Medical Lake, 1,250; Williams Lake, 400
- Pend Oreille County: Diamond Lake, 600
- Kittitas County: Cooper Lake, 250
- Yakima County: Clear Lake, 500
- Grant County: Park Lake, 400
- Okanogan County: Alta Lake, 350; Conconully Reservoir, 750
