Swofford Pond


Seek out the osprey nests and watch bald eagles fly. Look for common loons and western grebes. In early spring watch for the mating dance, when birds walk on water. Swofford Pond is a quiet birder's paradise. River otters, muskrat, and beavers also make their homes here. Deer and elk frequent the fields surrounding the pond. Popular with anglers, Swofford Pond has both bank fishing and is accessible to small boats with electric motors only. If there's a body of water anywhere in western Washington that has a little something for every freshwater angler, this 240-acre Lewis County lake just might be it. Whether your preferences lean toward bass, panfish, trout, even catfish, you can find what you're looking for here. Thousands of legal-sized rainbow and brown trout are stocked here every spring.
