White Chuck Boat Launch

Launch your boats, cast your lines, skip some rocks or go for a nature walk at the White Chuck boat launch. I spent the day here combing the beach and hiking the fishing trail that hugs the riverside. This is a scenic spot where the White Chuck River and the Sauk River join forces. The…

Howard Miller Steelhead Park

Howard Miller Steelhead Park is located in the very small and charming town of Rockport, Wa. Howard Miller was a Skagit County Commissioner and helped facilitate the initial purchase of the first 15 acres of this park in 1966. It wasn’t until the 1980s that the park was dedicated in his honor and 88 more…

Lake Shannon

Lake Shannon outside of Concrete, Wa is a recreational paradise. This massive reservoir of the Baker River stretches 7.5 miles long and over a half mile wide when it is full. All this water is held back by an arch dam built in the 1920s for Puget Sound Energy’s Baker River Hydroelectric Project. There’s a…

Vogler Lake

Just a few miles North of Concrete, Wa is pretty little Vogler Lake. It covers 3.5 acres and is fairly shallow too with an average depth of 10 feet. The best part is that you can drive right to it. Despite the shallowness it holds a decent population of Rainbow and Brook Trout. They do…

Lower Sauk Boat Launch

What a pretty spot to embark on a wild adventure on the Sauk River! I would even just hang out here for a day. There’s a nice picnic shelter and Honey Bucket available. Plus trails to the river. What more could you need than a few trees, mountainous views and a river? The launch itself…

Lake Tye Park

Lake Tye is one of those places I hate to like. It was completely man made while homes were built in tight rows beside it. It’s not really my perfect scenario for getting out in nature, but there is just something about it that keeps me coming back. The park itself is 64 acres while…

Flowing Lake (lower boat launch)

Flowing Lake, part of the Three Lakes area, has consistently offered some great fishing over the years. It’s not uncommon to pull up a 4 pound largemouth bass on the end of your line and the lake is always decently stocked with rainbow trout too. It has been said that there are plenty of catfish…

Storm Lake

Storm Lake is part of an area outside of Snohomish that the locals know as “Three Lakes”. Panther Lake is nearby and even closer is Flowing Lake which sums up the trio. They are all tried and true fishing holes if you ask me. 🎣🤠 When I got there the other day the gate was…
