Lake Scanewa
Scanewa Lake: Originally known as Cowlitz Falls Reservoir, this 610-acre impoundment islocated about 10 crow miles southwest of Randle. Turn on Savio Road west of Randle, turn south onto Kiona Road for 1.9 miles, then turn west (right) onto Falls Road for 3.6 miles to aturnoff for the day use area. For the campground, skip the turn onto Falls Road and continue onKiona Road, which turns into Peters Road. Good signage at every turn helps. Lewis County PUDstocks catchable-size rainbow trout. This year trout are scheduled to be stocked at four sites throughout the lake beginning in late June and continuing through August. Additional trout will be planted at the kid’s fishingderby site for a June derby co-sponsored by the PUD and U S Forest Service; watch for ads in the local papers the week before the derby. These plants will continue through early July to keepthe fishing derby site well-stocked. Salmon and steelhead in excess of hatchery needs are often released here to provide additional fishing opportunity. The reservoir is open to fishing from June1 through February 28, but regulations vary over the course of the open season. Be sure to check the latest Fishing Rules Pamphlet for special trout and salmon regulations, which are too complex to list here. Note that all cutthroat trout must be released during all open seasons.
