    Never been there and was thinking of heading down tomorrow to try it. The regs say it's open year round, but this link says it closed Oct 31.

    I would tend to side with the regs. To be safe you may want to call the Region 6 WDFW office at (360) 249-4628

    Open year round, and it's fishing well from what I hear.

    If nothing else works, hang a san juan worm a few feet off the bottom.

    Oh yeah. Page 64 of the current regs has it listed as year round.

    I fished there about 2 months ago and fishing was slow. Not saying thats how it is now but I found that the water was really dark like coffee colored. Not a big fan of waters like that. Fish cant see as well.

    That's some old regs! It's year round, selective gear, no motors and catch and release. Great chironomid lake! Chase away powerbaiters!

    Those powerbaiters sit right by the selective fishery sign and play pretty dumb when you mention the regs.

    Ask Steve how many of those takes resulted in hook-ups :) [ I think he tied that new pattern on a rubber hook]

    WDFW's water access page was updated and it now shows Munn Lake open year-round.
