    Thanks for looking. I am about to get a canoe Saturday and would like some advice on lakes in within an hour or so from Seattle. I was planning on Rattlesnake to break in the canoe, but realized the season does not start until late April. Pass may be a little too far for the first day. Besides some high alpine lakes, Rattlesnake and Pass are the only lakes I have fished in WA.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. HD

    Deep Lake, Lake 12 are two lakes within King County that are open now. Fishing is slow but both should be getting plantings soon. Check out Washington State fish and game website for open lakes and their planting for more lakes to try. Many of the year round lakes in King county get their plantings in March. One note on Deep Lake you will have to hike in your Canoe about a block since there is not a boat ramp there. Fish in the afternoon when the outside temp is alittle warmer and the fish alittle more active will help with the catching. Good Luck.:beer2

    Well, if you live in Seattle, why not try green lake? Or around the arboretum (sp?) area of lake WA?

    Beaver lake in Issaquah
    Lake Meridian in Kent can be good at times
