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. In recent years channel catfish were fished to very low levels, but WDFW restocked catfish fingerlings in 2011 and those fish are now a decent catchable size. Anglers should try bottom fishing with bait during the spring\summer months for cats! Sunfish and yellow perch are commonly caught in the pond as well.
