There are many varieties of fish that can be fished for in the lake, such as:
Fishing regulations for the lake are set by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife so it is important to check their fishing regulations book for correct information, size limits and catch limits.
Anyone 15 and older must have a valid fishing license with them while fishing at the lake. Kids 14 and under do not need to have a license to fish.
The Fish and Wildlife Department does enforce these rules at the lake so be sure you are familiar with the regulations. Local sporting goods stores that sell fishing gear are also good sources of information.
The lake gets stocked with trout 4 to 5 times per year. These fish come from various hatcheries from around the state. Most trout that are planted in the lake are from 6 inches to 14 inches in length. Broodstock trout (the really big ones!) are also planted a few times a year as well. These fish can weigh up to ten pounds!
All other fish except trout, reproduce naturally in the lake. Some bass have been caught that have weighed up to five pounds! Some carp can weigh up to 20 pounds!
Remember to check the Fish and Wildlife regulations book for size and catch limits if you are unsure. You can also view stocking reports from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
