Dusty Lake

Dusty Lake is located in WDFW's Quincy Wildlife Area near the City of Quincy.  This lake has fished very well the past five years for Rainbow Trout the occasional Brown Trout and Tiger Trout.  Dusty Lake sits in a shallow canyon and doesn't receive as much sunlight as other lakes early in the year.  As such, this lake remains colder longer and fishing doesn't start to pick up until later in the spring.  Access to Dusty Lake is walk-in only.  The lake is best fished from a float tube or pontoon boat.  Shoreline fishing is usually unproductive.
