OCEAN SHORES, Wash. — Coastal Bassmasters began a projec to rebuild the bass fishery at Duck Lake. "We have started working in the political arena between state and city government," said Eric Roos. "Duck Lake is a man-made reservoir owned by the resort city of Ocean Shores. Both Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife and City of Ocean Shores permits are required and applied for. "Our goal will be to work together with state and local agencies and other bass clubs to restore a once great largemouth fishery," added Roos.
LACEY, Wash. — Members of Fire Creek Bassmasters cleaned up public boat ramps on two separate occasions in summer 2012.
