Lake Overview:

Union Lake: An urban location founding the center of Seattle, where year-round fishing opportunities exist. Unfortunately this fishery is poorly documented. Species present include largemouth bass, yellow perch, crappie, other sunfish and brown bullhead catfish. An occasional cutthroat is also taken. Migratory salmon and steelhead use the lake as a pathway to lakes Washington and Sammamish. Fish production is probably affected by high salinity in the lower portions of this lake.
