Its not too stormy yet, and there’s still time to unwind with a little fresh water fishing on Duck Lake, in Ocean Shores.
In fact, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife reports that October is one of the best months for fishing the 27 miles of canals and lakes in Ocean Shores.
Why not make plans now to book a suite at The Polynesian Resort and drop your line in Duck Lake?
In the middle of Ocean Shores, Duck Lake is huge with plentiful wildlife and foul to catch your eye. The lake is stocked regularly with Rainbow trout and Jumbo Rainbow Trout, averaging 4-6 pounds each. More elusive are Largemouth Bass but there have been good reports on yellow perch and bluegill sunfish.
The City of Ocean Shores maintains and patrols two public boat launches–one at North Bay Park, near the center of town and the other at Chinook Park. Anglers can fish off the docks, embankments or launch their own vessels. Both parks have ample parking, play areas, portable toilet and wheel chair accessible.
Fishing licenses can be picked up in town at the Ace Hardware. A one-day fresh water fishing license for residents is just $11.35. Non-resident fee is $20.15.
Whether you catch a fish or not, you can always wind down the day at Mariah’s, Ocean Shores’ favorite restaurant, where you can enjoy fresh favorites and daily happy hours.
