State stocks Kent's Lake Meridian with 10,000 trout
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has stocked Lake Meridian in Kent with 10,000 rainbow trout.
Crews stocked the lake with 10,000 trout in mid-March, according to the state Fish and Wildlife website at wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/plants/weekly/. The fish are from the Puyallup hatchery.
Anglers can expect to find the trout larger this year than previous years with an average length of 11 inches compared to eight inches in past years, according to state officials.
Lake Meridian is open to fishing year-round. Besides the trout, the lake also contains kokanee, largemouth bass, yellow perch and brown bullhead catfish.
