Spring fishing, hunting options
May 7, 2020
WHITMAN COUNTY – With the ban on hunting and fishing lifted May 5, sportsmen are already able to finally get outdoors to engage yet again in the struggle of man versus nature.
This time of year, the most plentiful option is for fisherman with five county waterbodies already stocked or scheduled to be stocked with rainbow trout.
Rock Lake is the largest year-round water body in the county. Located northwest of St. John, it was scheduled for catchable trout plants in May and October, but has not received any yet according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
