I know it’s a drive for Pierce county folks but it’s just too fun and easy. That is no boat and related gear. Just your fly-fishing gear and a long-handled net. We get a ‘club’ rate of $10 per hour to fish either of the two stocked ponds. The fish range in size from 1-3 lb but the majority are 1 lb fish.
We will meet out front at 10:45-11:00 and talk flies. At check-in, you note you are from PSFF. You get a golf cart key and go fish. When you want to call it a day you go back to the clubhouse, checkout, and pay for time fished. If out 2-3 hours you will most likely get billed for two hours.
I recently fished the upper pond and hooked up with several fish but only netted seven (7-17).
An intermediate line with a flash bugger, Rickards still water nymph, or an orange bead head semi seal micro leech all work.
Drive WA-16 from Tacoma and take WA-160 exit (Southworth Ferry exit). Go left at light. Travel approximately four miles and you will get to Trophy Lake Golf course.
If planning to attend it’s especially important you let me know. Then I know how many folks are attending to coordinate with the front office.
