Lake Sylvia to close for kids' fishing event

Action: Closes Lake Sylvia to fishing by the public 12 hours prior to a kids-only fishing event.

Effective dates: 6 p.m. Friday, June 7 through 6 a.m. Saturday, June 8, 2019.

Species affected: All game fish.

Location: Lake Sylvia in Montesano (Grays Harbor County).

Reason for action: This rule change is necessary to ensure a safe and successful kids' fishing event. The fish will be planted the evening prior to the event to better acclimate them to the lake.

Additional information: Organizers of this event donate time, effort, and money to raise and stock trout in Lake Sylvia, and help with other fishing events in local lakes. The expected participation for this year's event is about 350 kids. Lake Sylvia is open year-round with the exception of this closure.

Information contact: Mike Scharpf, Region 6, 360-249-1205.
