Fishing season opens on the fourth Saturday in April and goes through October 31. Spring plants of yearling rainbow, broodstock rainbows, and brown trout should provide good action. Good largemouth bass and black crappie fisheries are available here as well.  The month of October can provide some great brown trout fishing as these fish move in-shore and forage heavily in preparation for their fall spawn timing.

An annual "Kid's Fishing" derby, held the first saturday in May, introduces youth ages 5 to 14 to sport fishing. For information consult the WDFW website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/kids/events.html.
