Swofford was originally designated to rear juvenile steelhead. When that proved to be unsuccessful, the focus turned towards managing the water for warmwater fish. There is a popular channel catfish and bass fishery that occurs on the pond as well.
This lake provides naturally reproducing populations of bluegill, crappie, largemouth bass, and brown bullheads.
Channel catfish have been stocked. Swofford also receives plants by Tacoma Power of several thousand catchable-size rainbow. There is an unimproved boat launching area. Internal combustion engines are not allowed. Call Tacoma Power's toll free fishing line at 888-502-8690.
