Bonney Lake

Bonney Lake is open year-round and offers good harvest opportunity for stocked rainbow trout. The lake also supports naturally reproducing populations of brown bullhead catfish, yellow perch, pumpkinseed sunfish, and largemouth bass.

The lake has a WDFW boat ramp on the northwest shore, off of 74 Street E, with a shallow gravel ramp, no restroom, and limited parking.
