Lake Overview:

Chehalis Wildlife Area ponds: This is a series of mostly unnamed sloughs and ponds on the Chehalis Wildlife are off Schouweiler Road, a couple miles southwest of Elma. The area is bordered by Hwy US-12 on the north side, Newman Creek on the west, and Vance Creek on the south. Largemouth bass, crappie and some cutthroat trout are available thanks to periodic flooding by the nearby Chehalis River. Easy access on gravel walking paths makes this a good place to take small children when not flooded. The ponds are open to fishing year-round, but not always easily accessible (See Washington State Parks website: for ADA accessibility information). Source: WDFW 2008 Fishing Prospects
