South Lewis County Park Pond

The pond is a former gravel pit that is now planted with rainbow trout.  In 1996, grass carp were stocked into the pond to assist in controlling invasive Eurasian milfoil.The pond is located within South Lewis County Park.  This small pond just southeast of Toledo has good shore and fishing pier access, and a boat launch.

The lake is open year round except closed the Monday before Thanksgiving, and reopened the Friday after Thanksgiving for the "Black Friday opener".  2000 rainbows at 1.25 lbs each will be planted for this event.

It is stocked with catchable-size rainbow under a mitigation agreement with Tacoma Power from mid-March into May.  It also recieves several hundred triploid rainbow in the spring, and excess sea-run cutthroat when available. Some largemouth bass and bluegill are also available, and a few tiger muskies.

Tiger Muskies minimum size limit is currently 50 inches. Grass carp have also been planted and it is illegal to fish for or retain grass carp.
