Warden Lake

Warden Lake is located just south of the City of Moses Lake and just west a few miles off State Route17.  For the past three years, Warden Lake has been one of Region 2's best opening day (late-April) lakes.  Anglers average near limits of trout on opening day and exprience good fishing through the spring.  Trout range in size from 12-20+ inches.  Occassionally, anglers catch the tiger trout planted into the lake.  This lake is best fished from a boat, but shoreline fishing areas are ample and effective as well.
