Echo Lake is one of the lakes that is stocked with fish annually. Fishermen are regularly seen at the lake.

There is also a tree that is an annual nesting site for cormorants. They appreciate the state for stocking the lake.

If you can get there before the cormorants do, there is a trout fishing derby going on until October 31, 2019 in participating derby lakes.

The 2019 Statewide Trout Fishing Derby

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Statewide Trout Fishing Derby which kicks off on April 27 and runs through October 31, 2019.

The derby is open to anyone with a valid Washington fishing license; youth age 14 and younger do not need a license. There is no registration or entry fee required.

Over 1,000 rainbow trout will be tagged and put into more than 100 lakes statewide, so you won't have to travel far to take part in the fun. Any angler who catches a derby tagged fish will win a prize -- It's that simple!

How to catch fish and win a prize:

1. Buy your fishing license, and go fishing at a participating derby lake - like Echo Lake

2. Catch a rainbow trout that has a blue tag

3. Call the phone number listed on the tag to find out what you've won and where to claim your prize

4. Snap a photo of your winning fish or prize and use #watroutderby on social media
