Shaw Lake

This is the uppermost named lake in the three-lake series ending with Wallace Lake in Wallace Falls State Park (Washington State Parks), near Gold Bar. Open to fishing year-round. This is an excellent opportunity to catch cutthroat trout that grow up to 16 inches long.

Access to the lake is challenging (especially in the winter) because it is located at 2,075 feet above sea-level and the old logging grades have grown over with vegetation.
