About three miles east of Ellensburg alongside I-82 accessed via Thrall Road, the lake is open to fishing year round.  

Fishing should be excellent for 10 to 14-inch rainbow trout during the early spring and summer season.  The lake is also stocked with jumbo rainbow trout (1-1.5 lbs each). Brood stock rainbows in the 6- to 12-pound range are stocked in late fall.

Pan fish may also be caught.

Good daytime access facilities for shore anglers and car-topper boats, but internal combustion engines are prohibited.  WDFW access and some private shoreline areas.  No camping.
