It’s hard to review a whole river/slough as big as the Sammamish River so for the sake of simplicity this will be a general review of my experience in the Redmond to Marymoor Park Area. From hated Pike Minnows to lovable Salmon, the Sammamish River is home to many species but the tricky part is finding them. On average the river is about four foot deep and I say the key is finding deep, slow moving, water. I’ve found large smallmouth bass in these pockets and only pike minnows and rock bass in shallows. Access is fairly easy along the trail but you might have to fight your way through thick blackberry bushes here and there. Kids as well as adults can catch fish here but it depends on what you’re going after. The river is selective rules which adds on a whole new level of challenge. Spring and Summer are great but there will be little to no bites during the Winter, not even pike minnows.

one of the best lakes for bass

As one who has fished here for years most are shooed off by the slow bite in the spring. This lake has a TON of bass and crappie but the bite doesn't pick up till summer. and don't expect much until around and after sunset. In the summer I come here and always catch a couple bass and I have seen some carp here too.
