Big Lake
Five miles southeast of Mount Vernon, along the west side of Highway SR-9. Open to fishing year-round. Previous warmwater sampling has shown this lake is dominated by largemouth bass, yellow perch, and pumpkinseed sunfish with modest numbers of cutthroat trout and black crappie available. There is a 9-inch minimum size, 10-fish limit on black crappie. The WDFW access area (http://wdfw.wa.gov/lands/water_access/) has a boat launch and toilet.
