    Hey, I heard that 5,090 trout were stocked in Beaver Lake in Sammamish. It said this on the WDFW website, but I haven't heard any reports on this. Anyone got anything?

    The last thing I would do is target a lake based on trout that have been plated this week that weigh in at a whopping .37 lbs a piece. But maybe that's Just me.

    They used to recycle the fish downriver to give anglers another opportunity to catch them. Since they are surplus and the state wants them out of the river, they stock them in lakes.
    Very common practice with Cowlitz fish.
