Williams Lake
Photo of Williams LakeFourteen miles north of Colville this lake has an elevation of 1950 feet. The fishing season is open December 1 through March 31. This "winter-only"� lake normally produces rainbow trout in the 10- to 13-inch range, with carryovers up to 14 inches. Rehabilitated in the fall of 2008 to eliminate illegally introduced yellow perch, this lake has fished well since. Expect good trout fishing this winter.
