Black Lake has a year-round open season. This large lake is close to the City of Olympia and offers a great opportunity to get away from the fast pace of the Capital City and enjoy some excellent fishing opportunity. The lake is stocked with Rainbow Trout in fall and spring and supports naturally reproducing Coastal Cutthroat Trout. The lake also supports populations of Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Black Crappie, and Brown Bullhead. The WDFW access has a boat launch and two toilets. Two private resorts offer ramps, fishing docks, and shore access.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
Shoreline access: Good - There is public shore access at the Black Lake boat launch as well as Kenneydell Park.
