Lake Geneva Park
46th Ave S and 344th St., Federal Way, WA
Access: Easy Shore Entry
Aquatic Life: 3
Being a small lake, there is not much to see as far as reefs go, but there are plenty of large bass in the shallows. The deepest point recorded was about 33 feet in the center of the lake. There is grass and undergrowth on the east end of the lake . If you move slowly to avoid stirring up the bottom you'll see some large bass, perch and catfish. You can also find schools of minnows and more large bass under the various docks.
Be careful not to get out of the water on private property without asking first.
How to get there:
Take 344th St off of Military Rd in Federal Way. It will take you to the park. There are a few small docks for fishing on the lake and many lakefront houses.

|This site is great for a spring snorkel trip to see the bass and bluegill in the shallows on thier nests. Not worth bringing the tanks as the deeper water holds nothing but bottomless mud (watch your boyancy as one of our party got stuck in the mud nearly to his chest!) However searching the shallow weed beds and tree branches will let you see a neat freshwater ecosystem. And bass are soo cool to watch, that I gave up fishing them once I saw them in thier natural world!|
|You have to be pretty desperate to get wet to dive this lake. But if that is the case, expect to stir up lots of mud and seaweed, see a few crawfish, and bottomless silt that disguises itself as a bottom. There were a bunch of large bass and perch sitting on nests in teh very shallow water (like 5ft). There is nothing here you can't see snorkeling, but like I said, sometimes you're desperate! |
