Vance Creek to Open for Fishing on Spring Break

March 14, 2013

The Washington Department of Fish And Wildlife announced that Vance Creek in Elma will open to limited fishing for spring break.

Vance Creek Pond #1 will be open March 30 through April 7 to trout and other game fishing by juveniles, seniors over 70, and anglers with a disability who possess a designated harvester companion card.

Mike Scharpf, the local WDFW District Fish Biologist, said that the opener will allow additional fishing opportunity for these groups on Vance Creek Pond #1, or Bowers Lake, during local Spring Break. Vance Creek Pond # 1 is an “Opening Day” lake regulated for juvenile, senior, and disabled fishers only. Vance Creek Pond will re-open the fourth Saturday in April.

The area will be open to fishing in Pond #1 only. Vance Creek Pond #2, or Lake Inez, will remain closed until the regularly scheduled opener on the last Saturday in April.
