Does anyone know anything about this small JBLM lake?

Does it have a good bass population?

Can you put a bass boat on it?(maybe electric motor only)

Any thing yall have to say about this lake I would appreciate it.

Yea on sequalitchew pond,,, Iv'e fished it off and on for @ 30 yrs,, It's shallow in spots, and a flat boat would serve best,, ele motor only,, It has been used by motorized vehicles as a water testing site for many a yrs. I have caught a released lg mouth bass,, but yrs back the crappie was well populated, and know it seems like the pumkin seeds are dominate, they are good ea


ting and lots of fun for kids,,of all ages.

At least for the time being.  The good news is that lakes like this can recover pretty quickly once the situation changes; if the situation changes.

I had always wanted to fish this lake guess I can mark it off my list of places to try.  Bummer...

Last time I was there I saw two boats; one with three Asian women and one with three Asian men.  Both boats were using bait and cane poles, and they kept every single thing they hooked.  I don't mind people keeping a meal or two at all, but what I saw was ridiculous.

I was on the lake recently with my Ranger; use electric motor only.  There is a launch on a gravel road, and it is deep and steep so you can get your boat on the trailer without your outboard.

Used to be a killer lake, especially when it was used to raise salmon and trout.  The last two years it has been terrible for me.  I blame it on the otters and the meat eaters that are on it every day.  There are some huge bass still there, but you will fish a lot of great looking spots with very little action.

That lake has been hammered by meat fishermen. Its gettin worse every year. It stunk last year. The fish that are left are pretty spooky.

I have fished it before. No gas motors allowed, but you can trim them out of the water. Also, they do give passes for the public to fish them. Google the lake and you will find all the info you need to get in there. This was about 2 or 3 years ago when I went, when I was in the military so you should check into the requirements now. Very good lake for sure

I wish I had free access to fish that lake again. It has a healthy bass population, great spinner bait lake. As far as motor restrictions it would be best to check with the Ft. Lewis officials. Don't ov er look the many marshes and lakes out there, that is where I caught my first bass.
