Spanaway Lake (262 Acres) 06/10/2016

Spanaway: The south end of the lake is the best spot for catching trout. Still fishing has been far more effective than trolling.

Spanaway Lake (262 Acres) 05/20/2016

Spanaway: Still fishing at the south end of the lake is producing lots of limits of rainbow trout. Worms and marshmallows have been the best bait combo. Some rainbows are weighing up to 5 pounds.
