Hey Guys, I am writing for NW Sportsman Magazine now and am working on an article about the Top 5 South Sound Bass Lakes, and would love to see where everyone ranks them and their opinion so I can begin forming the article using real, up-to-date information.
What are your Top 5 South Sound Bass Fisheries?
(Tacoma Metro south to North Lewis county)
-If you can, explain why you chose them!
What's your top 5? I know Sparky would like to see Long Lake on the list.
Tapps, American, Ohop, Long (Thurston Co) Kapowsin
I always used to fish those lakes, but honestly have not touched them since I moved to go to school at EWU!
Long was always my favorite, but you guys are lucky they opened it up year-round now! Right before I left for school 4 years ago is when American Lake really started to catch on.
Honestly in High School the three lakes I fished most were Long, Stielacoom, and American with a dash of Hicks, Patterson, & Chambers.
Saw a 10 plus caught from Patterson a few years ago. Some big fish there. Always liked Chambers and Hicks but have never done well there...if that makes sense. Just liked the lakes and layouts.
Would anyone like to submit some pictures? If so, feel free to at NickTBarr@Hotmail.com
