Western Washington - Silver Lake

Recommended Posts

I've lived in Western Wa. for about 1 1/2 yrs now.  When i originally moved here people were saying Silver Lake is the best (large Mouth) bass lake in western Wa.  I have fished it about 8 times now and i have a different opinion.  I have caught my share, along with a couple 7 lbr's, but I have yet to have what I call a good day.  When i fish this lake i have no confidence in it anymore.  I do know that the grass carp had cleaned the lake bottom dry of weeds, so the lake has changed in the last few years.

Just wondering what was the opinion (silver lake) of those that fish the lake.

Where did you move from?  I'm curious to what you're comparing it to.  Also, when did you fish it? Spring, summer, fall, winter?

I have lived in the south (Ky & Tenn for  approx. 20 yrs fished all over), I have lived on the Oregon coast (for approx 15 yrs fished Ten Mile Lake, Takenitch lake & Crane Prarie) and Montana (for approx two years primarily fished Noxon Res.) .  I have tried Silver lake all season excluding the fall, this time is dedicted to Archery Elk.  I caught the largest in the summer time on top water when all the lilly pads were up.  Glenn, you may have a point, in my previous locations bass were more plentiful and maybe I just need to adjust.

A 7lb bass in a NW lake sounds like a destination lake to me?

Ive actually fished Silver only once, but it was in the fall during the pre-winter feed and I caught many many fish (and I pretty much suck at bass fishing right now).  Most were dinks but the numbers were there.  Maybe take a break from the hunting for a day and try it out in the fall? ;)

Yes it is Castle Rock.  There was a tourney this past weekend & I went to watch the weigh-in.  I believe 15lbs took 1 st place.  I saw about 25-28 boats (don't quote me on that) 9-10 boats had fish.  What I saw in the boats were black/blue jigs, Senko's & white or chart. spinner baits.  I didn't see anyone with tubes tied on?  This tells me that the bass are tucked on the shoreline in that awfull brush.

Bass_junky,

Now that the sun is out, you could find some active fish.  A couple of my buddies did okay and not so okay.  If you are not familiar with this lake, go out and explore and have a good time.  Aslo be vary patient and fish very slow.  Through your bait or lure several times before you move on.
