This lake is one of only ten waters in King County managed with a seasonal fishing closure. Spring catch rates for trout are highest early in the season and decline as fish are harvested and as warmer water temperatures force trout to seek areas of colder refuge. Fall is often overlooked by anglers but can be an ideal time as fish that have been growing all summer become more active around the lake with cooler temperatures. Fishing opportunities include stocked Rainbow Trout and resident Largemouth Bass and Yellow Perch. A boat launch is maintained by the WDFW adjacent to Steel Lake Park (City of Federal Way) where shore anglers can fish from a pier.
