About Irvine Slough
Along the Shore of Skagit Bay

Irvine Slough is in the city of Stanwood, Washington, along Highway 532. Its primary function is to help the town manage stormwater and drainage, so it is not considered a recreational water body. Irvine Slough receives routine maintenance from the city and is upkeep to ensure its functioning properly.

What makes this water body unique is its prime location in the city and along the Pacific coast.

Nearby Entertainment

The Stillaguamish River runs near the slough and makes its way into the bay. You can enjoy boating and fishing in the bay--you can even make your way to the Pacific Ocean if you are looking for a more extended adventure.

If you are an avid fisherman, Puget Sound offers excellent fishing for chinook, coho, pink, chum and sockeye salmon, sea-run cutthroat trout, steelhead, green sturgeon, Pacific halibut, cabezon, and lingcod. You can even take charters out on the water if you do not own a boat!
