This large Skagit River reservoir is 9.5 miles northeast of Newhalem. Open to fishing from July 1 to October 31. Fishing is mainly for large native rainbow trout. Special catch and size restrictions are in effect, plus selective gear rules (except that outboard motors are permitted). Check the regulations pamphlet for details. The lake is closed to the taking of bull trout / Dolly Varden.
There is a public access and boat launch at the north end accessible through British Columbia, and a trail/boat access resort on the south end, plus several boat-access camping sites along the east shore.
