A brief visual overview of Meridian Lake in Washington State. The facts and features shown in this video are to give you a picture of the benefits of visiting this lake for your next fishing trip.
The 150 acre Meridian Lake is located between Kent and SR 18, about two miles east of Kent. This year-around lake has dual WDFW and county park access on the southeast shore with a boat ramp. An excellent fishing pier is available through the county park. Stocked with catchable-size rainbows after May 1 (to reduce bird predation), Meridian is also productive for largemouth bass, yellow perch and brown bullheads.
Lake Meridian was taken over by the City of Kent about 7 years ago or so. It's a city park and looks way better than what the county did with it. The city is redoing the boat launch this year because of how shallow it was, so by the end of the year, it will be a lot easier for people to launch their boats. Mike Carey warns you to watch out for the early morning skiers on this urban lake. Beware, the speed boats come out promptly at 9am!
