#Geography Of Lake Union

        Close to Seattle's geographic center is where one can find Lake Union. The South Lake Union neighborhood embraces the southern side of Lake Union. Along Lake Union's western side, Westlake Avenue is the main thoroughfare, and Fairview Avenue does the same along Lake Union's eastern coast. 

#Geology Of Lake Union

        An exposed glacial basin from a glacial retreat is where Lake Union was created. Land surfaces covered in ice rose due to the glacial retreat. Compared to the north, this isostatic rebound in the southern Puget Lowland fluctuated locally and was considerably more moderate. 

#History Of Lake Union

       Lake Union, which was carved by the retreating Vashon Glacier about 14,000 years ago, was known to the Duwamish people who resided along its southern bank as "meman harishu" (Little Lake). In January 1853, Seattle pioneer David Denny made the first claim on the southern end of Lake Union.  

#Fishing In Lake Union

       Smallmouth and largemouth bass, black crappie, various sunfish, and yellow perch are some of the fish species found in Lake Union. Additionally caught on occasion is the Coastal Cutthroat Trout. The lake serves as a route for migratory salmon and steelhead trout to reach Lakes Washington and Sammamish
