Zorinsky has a number of good places to launch from. I prefer the parking lot on the North side of the lake, East of 168th Street. It's got a couple of short, easy paths to get your kayak into the water. Zorinsky was drained in the winter of 2010-2011 because it contained zebra mussels. After it re-opened in the Fall of 2011, it has been stocked with largemouth bass, crappie, redear sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, musky, and walleye. Zorinsky has a couple of spots in the lake where there is flooded timber that provides great structure for fish. One of the kayak angler highlights, is the narrow, shallow channels that are on the West end of the lake. They lead back to the creek that feeds the lake and are not motor-boater friendly. Not so for the kayaker! It is a very popular lake for a variety of recreational purposes. Jogging, cycling, fishing, boating, etc. It's frequently pack with outdoor enthusiasts. However, it is a good fishery, particularly in the relatively isolated areas on the West end of the lake..
