Lake Tapps is currently open year-round, including the intake canal to within 400 feet of the screen at Dingle Basin. The lake supports naturally reproducing populations of largemouth and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, black crappie and stocked tiger muskies. Anglers are reminded that all tiger muskies under 50 inches must be released.
Lake Tapps North Park (Pierce County) on the northeast shore provides a boat ramp, bathrooms, and plenty of and bank access while the city of Bonney Lake provides a launch and docks along the western shore at Allan Yorke Park.
The lake level is down throughout winter and early spring, which prevents any boat access, though anglers may stil walk around the shoreline
