Beaver Lake to Get 2,400 Rainbow Trout Today

Beaver Lake Christine Kipp Anglers will have an opportunity to catch large rainbow trout this fall in Beaver Lake, thanks to the release of about 2,400 hatchery rainbows averaging about three pounds each.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will release the fish on Nov. 5. To facilitate that, the agency closed the Beaver Lake access site at sunset on Nov. 4 and will reopen the site at sunrise on Nov. 6. Beaver Lake, however, will remain open to fishing while the access site is closed.

The trout are part of an educational display at the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery. The department releases trout into Beaver Lake each year.

Beaver Lake is best fished by small boat, although anglers also can be successful fishing from shore.
