Martha is located In Lynnwood, two miles northeast of Alderwood Manor. Stocked Rainbow Trout are the main draw, but resident Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Brown Bullhead catfish are also present.
This lake is one of only twelve waters in Snohomish County managed with a seasonal fishing closure. Spring catch rates for trout are highest early in the season and decline as fish are harvested and as warmer water temperatures force trout to seek areas of colder refuge. Fall is often overlooked by anglers, but can be an ideal time as fish that have been growing all summer become more active around the lake with cooler temperatures.
The WDFW access on the southeast corner has a boat ramp, parking and toilet. Martha Lake Park (Snohomish County Parks) also offers parking and toilets, plus play and picnic areas and two large fishing piers. Disabled accessibility at county park.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
Shoreline access: Good - Shoreline access at WDFW boat ramp and fishing pier at public park
