Dog Lake

Dog Lake is located east of White Pass along the north side of Highway 12 in the Wenatchee National Forest.  Although it is open to fishing year-round, this high-elevation lake (4207 feet) is not very fishable until the ice & snow cover has receded (mid to late May or early June).  Fishing is very good for stocked, catchable size (9 - 13 inch) rainbow trout throughout the spring and summer.  Some jumbo rainbow are also stocked (1-1.5 lbs each).  Brook trout are also present.  Only one fish over 14 inches is allowed in the five-trout daily limit.

Ice fishing is becoming increasingly popular at this easily accessible lake in recent years.

A small U.S. Forest Service campground and rough boat launch is located adjacent to the lake.
