Lake Howard
Photo of Lake HowardNine miles northwest of Marysville. Open to fishing from the 4th Saturday in April to October 31. Catchable-size rainbow trout that are stocked in the spring should provide excellent opening-day action. Jumbo triploid rainbow trout and cutthroat trout (spring-fry) are also stocked in this lake. There is a WDFW access (http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/water_access/) with toilet on the northwest shore.
