A Fisherman's Guide to Selected Lakes of Washington's Kitsap Peninsula Area
Most fishing guides offer very limited information on a large number of lakes, most of which their authors have never been near. This book provides detailed information on the lake and surrounding area, as well as directions and fishing tips. All lakes included in this book have been personally visited, photographed, and in most cases fished by the author.
The emphasis is on the fisherman's perspective, but detailed trail and camping information is provided where applicable.
The lakes selected for inclusion in this book are on and around the Kitsap Peninsula of northwest Washington. Most of the lakes are in Mason and Kitsap Counties. Also included are a few lakes in Pierce County that are found on the Key Peninsula, as well as some eastern Jefferson County lakes.
Mason County includes an area to the south of the Kitsap Peninsula, and also the southeastern corner of the Olympic Peninsula. Those areas are also covered in this book.
The author is a ten-time Washington State record holder, with certified weight records for five different species of fish. Catch data for several hundred lakes, dating back to 1981, has been provided to Washington State fish biologists. Data dating back to 1994 has also been provided to the State of Montana.
Born and raised in northwest Washington and part of a very outdoor oriented family, the author has spent his entire life exploring new places and looking for new waters to fish. So far the search for fishing opportunities has ranged across the states of Washington, Idaho and Montana.
