 Anybody know if Fortson Pond in Darrington is still planting trout for kids?

 I fished those mill ponds Back in the late 60ís and early 70ís as a kid visiting grandmas house a block away.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I take my kids to Crescent lake just past Gig Harbor. They have a small public launch and its stocked pretty well.

Usually drift Berkeley gulp baits with a little split shot. Some nice crappie and some bass in there as well.

Not much shore access as itís all private except the little launch area. Itís great for a canoe/kayak or even a tube if you donít have a small boat.

Rented a boat out of JBLM  and took the kiddos on the sound. Caught some fatty flounder and it was great because you could see they were full of eggs so we released them. Kids didnt bat an eye after knowing they were saving babies. Tomorrow is lake day. Maybe might hit black lake or lake st clair. Hoping to get on some trout or whatever may be biting.

Check out Tanawax as well off Meridian (hwy 161) before eatonville.  Pretty nice private dock at an RV resort.  Mineral has good dock fishing as well and boat rentals.  If you can get your hands on rental through JBLM, American is great for trout as well if you troll..  Or let the wind drift with about 1/2 ounce..  You'll get into some bigger fish.
