Chapman Lake

Good late-season action for largemouth and smallmouth bass with a few other warm water species present too. Chapman also provides good catches of rainbow trout and kokanee, with a generous kokanee limit; check the regulations pamphlet for details.

Chapman Lake is currently not open to the public due to issues with private landowners.  WDFW is working cooperatively with private landowners on the lake to develop access or WDFW will in the future pursue alternative access to this lake.  Until public access is restored WDFW will have limited fish management activities on this lake.  For access questions call (509) 892-1001.
