Lyman Slough Property

Property Description

Lyman Slough was once a popular fishing spot on the west side of Lyman. Fishermen would walk from Lyman on the gravel bars along the banks of the Skagit River. The river is shifting and a large slough now separates the mainland from the gravel bars much of the year. Fishermen still try their luck from boats on the river and the river may shift again in the future.

Skagit Land Trust acquired this property with assistance from the Governor's Salmon Recovery Funding Office and Skagit County Public Works to protect the significant coho rearing habitat found here. The property also hosts a riparian woodland, home to many songbirds, amphibians and bats.  Volunteers have contributed a great deal of time removing invasive species and planting native species over the years.

Things to do here: Walk along the Cascade Trail, watch the variety of birdlife and view this beautiful waterway.

NOTE: Due to recent changes in the flow of the Skagit River, the river bank at Lyman Slough may be unstable.  Use caution when visiting the property.


Driving directions:  Just over seven miles east of Sedro-Woolley, turn right on Lyman-Hamilton Road. Drive 1.5 miles, to Lyman City Park. Park here and walk over to the Cascade Trail - Lyman Slough is on the right, along the slough.
