A quick overview of the landscape and surrounding amenities of American Lake in Pierce County, Washington State. Consider this location for your next fishing expedition!
American Lake is firmly established as one of the greater Tacoma area's primary fishing lakes. The video was shot on a cool day with moderating winds. This lake is 1125 acres, 8 miles SW of Tacoma. Take the Camp Murray-Madigan exit from Hwy 5 to proceed to this spot. The lake holds rainbow, cutthroat, kokanee, perch, largemouth and rock bass, and bullhead. There are several boat launches on the lake, as well as a resort on the lake's east shore.
Mike Carey and Bruce Middleton got the opportunity to fish at this lovely lake location. They found it to be a tough day for bass fishing but a truly nice day on the water.
