Lake Sammamish
Wild Coastal Cutthroat Trout, Smallmouth Bass, and Yellow Perch are the main attractions; quality-size Largemouth Bass are present, but less abundant than Smallmouth Bass. Brown Bullhead are also present. Kokanee, Steelhead Trout, and some salmon species are closed to fishing. Salmon opportunity will depend on in-season abundance. Public access is through Lake Sammamish State Park plus a few private resorts. The state park surrounds the lake's south shore and offers a wide range of amenities, including multi-lane boat launching. There are no fishing piers, but angling is possible year-round from the shoreline or tie-up floats at the park.
