Featured Lake Article

By Mike Carey

St. Clair is a 245 acre lake that features numerous inlets and deep holes to search for fish. The lake holds rainbow, kokanee, cutthroat, rock bass, largemouth bass, crappie, pumpkinseed and yellow perch. With a maximum depth of 110 feet, the lake has several potential holes to explore for these prized fish.

The lake is 5 miles NW of Yelm in western Washington.

St. Clair is about 75% developed with a variety of vacation and year-round homes. The shoreline is a mix of wooded and brush landscape. There are two public access points, one well-developed with a nice concrete boat launch, ample parking, and good handicap access. The second public area is small, with a steep gravel boat launch that seems to drop off into deep water. I do not recommend backing a trailer down this access point, but it would be fine for hand-launched boats.

Lake St. Clair currently has a 5 mph speed limit on it, which makes it an ideal place to go for a day of peace and quiet fishing for a variety of fish. Sure to satisfy both trout fishermen and spiny ray anglers, St. Clair is an excellent lake to spend a day exploring.
