Rotary Lake is located near the Greenway Trail in Yakima. It is approximately one-third mile hike from the parking lot near Harlan Landing (Selah Gap) or the parking lot behind the old Boise-Cascade Mill (next to Interstate Hwy I-82).
It has a year-round open season and is stocked with catchable and jumbo size (10-13 inch) rainbow trout. The lake is also stocked with 5-12 pound broodstock in the fall.
Largemouth bass up to seven pounds have been caught and channel catfish up to 20 pounds. Channel catfish have likely been fished to very low levels, but WDFW has recently reinitiated its stocking program for these popular warm water game fish so the future looks promising. Sunfish and yellow perch are commonly caught in the pond as well.
