Pine Lake

Fishing opportunities include newly stocked and carryover Rainbow Trout and resident Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Pumpkinseed Sunfish.

This lake is one of only ten waters in King 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 lake can be accessed via Pine Lake Park (City of Sammamish). The park offers a paved parking area, toilets, picnic area, ball field, and kids play areas. Shore-bound anglers can fish from an excellent fishing pier. The boat ramp is restricted to car-toppers and float tubes, and outboard motors are prohibited.

Two-pole fishing is allowed
