I am but only fish 2 small lakes nearby. Not great bass fishing. Maybe once or twice a year I go east for better fishing. Up around okanogan has good bass and duck lake in ocean shores did when I fished a long time ago heard it's not great anymore though. Probably closest decent fishing for me is mason lake

There are actually a lot of decent lakes. Ask Glenn the moderator, he's the washington guru. He might give you a few tips and lakes.

Long Lake in Port Orchard has some nice fish in it.  Lake Tapps is excellent smallmouth fishing.  Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish have good bass fishing.

Close to McChord:  American Lake, Black Lake, Long Lake, Lake Steilacom.

Lake Washington & Sammamish both have excellent smallmouth fishing...largemouth too, but takes more work and time to get to know the spots. I usually head east over the pass to Potholes Reservoir when my schedule permits.

I been fishing American Lake last couple of weeks and I guess the fish are still down deep from colder water. I'm hoping to day after the warm weather there coming into the shallows. But I guess I will have to rent a boat.

I'm a Western WA bass fisherman.  I enjoy hitting some of the electric motor only lakes for Bass.  Beaver Lake in the Sammamish plateau has never let me down.  I've caught a few five pound LM Bass in Lake Desire in the Fairwood area.  Lake Washington has some lunkers but it is big and can be a pain when boat traffic gets busy as the lake gets really choppy (not an issue if you have a good size boat).  I've caught some good SM Bass in Lake Sammamish!  If you are up for driving to the Olympia area, check out Lake St. Clair.  Its a fun lake that most of is a no wake zone with lots of over hanging trees and sunken log structure.  Lake Sawyer in Covington has some good LM bass fishing too.
