Lake Kokanee drawdown

Tacoma Power drew down Lake Kokanee on April 20 as part of the North Fork Skokomish Fish Hatchery construction project. Construction remains on schedule. If everything continues as planned, Lake Kokanee should be refilled to its normal level by the afternoon of Friday, May 22. The boat launch and parking areas will also be available.

Additionally, Tacoma Power will release 3,000 rainbow trout into Lake Kokanee on May 22. Please note internal combustion motors on Lake Kokanee are restricted to a maximum of 7.5 horsepower. No personal watercraft are allowed.

Notifications of any unforeseen changes to this schedule will be posted here.
