Don’t forget, Saturday is the start of the lowland lake trout season. Hundreds of lakes will open statewide, including popular South Sound lakes such as Silver, Long, Limerick and the Clear lakes in Pierce and Thurston counties. Remember, there will be lots of fellow anglers out there trying to catch fish and have a good time too. Pack your patience along with all your other gear, and give everyone room to fish. For up-to-date information on stocking your favorite lake, go to wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/plants/weekly.
