Lake Union

The fishery here is poorly documented. Species present include Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Black Crappie, other sunfish and Brown Bullhead. An occasional Coastal Cutthroat Trout is also caught. Migratory salmon and Steelhead Trout use the lake as a pathway to lakes Washington and Sammamish. Fish production is probably affected by high salinity in the lower portions of this lake.

Two-pole fishing is NOT allowed
