King County's Pine Lake opens May 29 for lowland lake trout fishing

Action: Open Pine Lake to trout fishing.

Effective date: 12:01 a.m. Saturday, May 29, 2004.

Species affected: All game fish species.

Location: Pine Lake (King County)

Reason for action: The City of Sammamish will restore public access to Pine Lake on May 29, 2004. Major construction projects to renovate park facilities necessitated closure of public fishing access to the lake since April 24th, the traditional lowland lakes opening day. Construction projects are nearing completion and the contractor has made assurances that work will be completed prior to the rescheduled opening day.

Other information: Pine Lake will close to fishing on October 31, 2004 as stated in the rules pamphlet. A new regulation that prohibits internal combustion engines on the lake will be in effect. This new boater regulation was implemented in January 2004 by the City of Sammamish.

Information contact: Larry Tsunoda, area fish biologist, (425) 775-1311, ext. 116; Hope Gibson, City of Sammamish, (425) 246-2585, for facilities and boat/boater information.

Fishers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery. Check the WDFW "Fishing in Washington" rules pamphlet for details on fishing seasons and regulations.
