Catchable-size Rainbow Trout are stocked in the spring and fingerling Brown Trout are stocked in the fall. Catchable-size Channel Catfish (8-11 inches) were last stocked in Fall 2011.
Common Carp dominate the warmwater community, and provide an exciting but elusive quarry for dedicated anglers. Other species present include Largemouth Bass, Rock Bass, Pumpkinseed Sunfish and Brown Bullhead. Tiger Musky, a sterile hybrid between Northern Pike and Muskellunge, were planted in 2000 in an experiment to help control the rapidly expanding carp population. There is a 50-inch minimum size limit on muskies.
Green Lake Park (Seattle Parks and Recreation) extends around the entire lake providing excellent shoreline access to anglers. In addition, fishing piers are located at the south, east and northeast shores of the lake and car-toppers can be launched from the shore as long as they are not motor-powered.
