Lake Kapowsin

Kapowsin Lake is open year-round and offers good fishing opportunity for largemouth bass, black crappie, yellow perch, pumpkinseed sunfish, and rock bass.  The lake is also stocked yearly with rainbow trout to provide a diverse fishing experience.

The new WDFW access along the north shore is open and provides a boat ramp, dock, and parking.
