The state has stocked more than a quarter-million rainbow trout in dozens of lakes across Western Washington in time for spring break.

The trout, measuring 10-12 inches long, were to be released into 47 year-round fishing lakes in Pierce, Thurston, King, Mason, Kitsap, Grays Harbor, Island and Snohomish counties.

The Pierce County lakes that were to be planted are (with the number of fish): American (12,000), Bonney (1,000), Bradley (1,000), Florence (3,900), Harts (6,480), Louise (2,340), Spanaway (18,000), Steilacoom (5,000), Wapato (1,680), Waughop (1,500) and Whitman (2,000).

The Thurston County lakes are: Black (25,000), Long’s Pond (2,000), St. Clair (9,500), Lawrence (10,000), Munn (500) and Offut (4,000).
