Lake Aberdeen

Fishing should be good for 10- to 11- inch Rainbow Trout with good numbers of some much larger fish available, including some triploid Rainbow Trout that average 1.5 to 2 pounds each, and jumbo Rainbow Trout reared through a cooperative project with Chehalis Basin Fisheries Task Force and WDFW that average 4-6 pounds each.

Opening Day is usually crowded as families participate in a "Youth only" fishing derby sponsored by the Aberdeen VFW Post # 0224.

Access is through a city park. There is a rough gravel launch on the SW side of the lake. Internal combustion motors are prohibited. See Washington State Parks website for ADA accessibility  information.
