Photo of Amber Lake

This lake is located 12 miles southwest of Cheney, Washington in the scenic channeled scablands area of easter Washington.  Amber Lake is a popular spring, summer and fall fly fishing lake.  Thousands of anglers from  statewide come to this lake to test their skills against many thousands of  beautiful rainbow and cutthroat trout ranging in size from 12 to 20 plus inches.   For those that don't flyfish, this lake is regulated under selective gear rules which allows anglers to also use single point barbless hook artificial lures.  Check the "Fishing in Washington" pamphlet for special rules and regulations on this lake.
