I was looking through the regs and it occurred to me, if there's no boat launch can I take my canoe out on the lake or is it closed to boats all together? I couldn't find anything in the reg book about it. Does anyone know?

I believe that as long as you do not trespass to access the lake, you are free to canoe it, with or without a boat launch.

Provided you are talking about a lake in Washington, if it isn't listed in the regulations it is closed.

The folks at Mill Creek WDFW told me that it would be open year round.
You are correct, provided said "lake" isn't a beaver pond.
Rivers, streams and beaver ponds not listed in the regs are closed.
Thankfully beavers never use lakes, just ponds. ;)

Yes I am specifically talking about lakes and ponds listed in the regs without boat launches. On the beaver side though, robins lake in Tahuya did have beaver for a while. They were trying to damn up the culvert under a road. A real PITA for the ranger

Similar thing happened to the upper Big Bear Creek in
Woodinville area. King County spent a lot of time trying to capture said villain. I suppose they finally did. He/they were damming up the drain under the roadway and causing water
over the roadway on occasion of heavy rain. I think they got a free vacation to Upper Skykomish or some other beaver vacation location.
