Stickney Lake

About four miles northeast of Lynnwood, between I-5 and Highway SR-99. Fishing opportunities include stocked Rainbow Trout and resident Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and Black Crappie.

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 concrete WDFW boat launch on the north shore has parking and a toilet.
