Western Washington BASS fishing is very popular! The reason is, we have big Smallmouth in Washington state.
It is not uncommon to hook into a 5lb Smallmouth. We fish select lakes in western Washington for both largemouth and smallmouth bass. In fact, Washington state has some trophy smallmouth bass in comparison to many areas around the country.
While you may want to fish a certain lake in western Washington, we like to recommend which lake to fish, based on recent catch ratio. Most of the lakes we fish are a short drive from Seattle.
We fish the following lakes for bass; Lake Goodwin, Lake Whatcom, Lake Samish, Lake Washington, Lake Stevens and Lake Sammamish.
The Washington state record for smallmouth bass is 8.75 lbs. This record was set April 23, 1966. The Washington state record for largemouth bass is 12.53 lbs. set August 8, 2016.
